President Trump signed, on March 7, a new Executive Order entitled “Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into The United States”, which bans the entry to US for crewmembers from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen, unless they hold valid visas prior to March 16th. Also, they will not be able to obtain visas, until 90 days after March 16th.
The UK P&I Club explains what the recent ban to USA means for crew following President Trump’s Executive Order of January 27, 2017 on immigration. This decision indefinitely barred Syrian refugees from entering the United States, suspended all refugee admissions for 120 days and blocked citizens of seven countries.
The UK P&I Club reminds operators of the speed restrictions which exist off the US coast.
