DOS updates definition on Travel Ban


DOS issued revised guidance in response to the U.S. District Court for the District of Hawaii’s ruling on July 13, 2017, regarding the definition of “close familial relationship.” In addition to what was previously defined under U.S. government guidance as “parent (including parent-in-law), spouse, fiancé, child, adult son or daughter, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, sibling, whether whole or half, and including step relationships,” the District Court in Hawaii ruled that “close family” in Executive Order (EO) 13780 also includes “grandparents, grandchildren, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, aunt and uncles, nephews and nieces, and cousins.”
