U.S. visa applicants whose requests were denied under former President Donald Trump’s controversial ban on travelers from 13 mostly Muslim-majority and African nations can now seek new decisions. Following a legal review, State Department spokesperson Ned Price said Monday that those whose immigrant visa applications received a final refusal on or after Jan. 20, 2020, due to Trump’s travel ban “may seek re-adjudication without resubmitting their application forms or paying any additional fees, provided the underlying visa petitions remain valid.” Trump’s travel ban was overturned by President Joe Biden. At the same time, there are bad news for the people selected in the diversity visa lottery during the fiscal years of the Trump administration. If they haven’t gotten visa they couldn’t have it because „deadlines for visa issuance in those fiscal years have expired.”
Since December 2017, more than 41,000 people from Eritrea, Iran, Kyrgyzstan, Libya, Myanmar, Nigeria, North Korea, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tanzania, Venezuela and Yemen.were denied entry into the United States due Trump’s travel ban. President Biden changed many restrictions which applied to immigrants. His administration considers to be open to all people around the world.
