The new ban would be for the next 90 days and coincides with a pause in the admission of all refugees to the United States for the next four months.

The countries in question; Iran, Iraq, Sudan, Syria, Libya, Somalia, and Yemen were reported to have initially been identified as “countries of concern” by the Obama administration.

President Obama in his time only limited what is known as a visa-waiver to those who had visited one of the seven countries from March 2011.

People who previously could have entered the United States without a visa were instead required to apply for one if they had traveled to one of the seven countries.

The provisions of the law state that dual citizens of visa-waiver countries and Iran, Iraq, Sudan, or Syria could no longer travel to the U.S. without a visa. Dual citizens of Libya, Somalia, and Yemen could, however, still use the visa-waiver program if they hadn’t traveled to any of the seven countries within that time frame.

However, President Trump’s order now prohibits all citizens from those seven countries from entering the U.S. and leaves green card holders subject to being rescreened after visiting those countries.

The order also calls for a review of the suspension of the Visa Interview Waiver Program, which allows travelers from 38 countries to renew travel authorizations without an in-person interview.

The full executive order is titled: “Protection Of The Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into The United States.”
