  • International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) is pleased to welcome all international students and exchange visitors to The New School and help them enhance their cultural experience by engaging in travel to other parts of the United States as well as internationally.

    U.S. Travel Restrictions and Visa Services

    Travel Restriction Update
    On June 22, 2020, Presidential Trump issued a presidential proclamation suspending entry into the United States of certain non-immigrant workers. This proclamation will take effect at 12:01 a.m. on June 24, 2020, and continue to December 31, 2020. The proclamation does not apply to F-1 students, J-1 students, J-1 scholars, J-1 students on Academic Training, or F-1 students on OPT or OPT STEM extensions. F-1 and J-1 students and their dependents will still be permitted entry to the United States with appropriate travel documents.


    Visa Services Update

    On July 14, 2020, the Department of State announced that it is continuing to provide "emergency and mission-critical visa services" and will phase in processing some routine non-immigrant and immigrant visa cases, including F-1 and certain J-1 students and scholars. Please contact the U.S. embassy or consulate nearest you for more information, as service will vary based on available resources and overall health and safety. 

    Travel Restrictions due to COVID-19

    In a January 31, 2020, presidential proclamation, the Trump administration expanded its travel ban to place visa and entry restrictions on travelers from six additional countries: Eritrea, Kyrgyzstan, Myanmar, Nigeria, Sudan, and Tanzania. The new ban (Travel Ban 4.0) became effective on February 21, 2020. Travel Ban 4.0 will not affect the acquisition of non-immigrant visas like F-1 student and J-1 student, scholar and exchange visitor, and H-1B worker visas or admission to the United States in those categories. Travel Ban 3.0 continues to affect certain citizens of Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, Venezuela, and Yemen.
