Information from UB Immigration Services

The recently issued Executive Orders have created concerns particular to UB's international faculty, researchers and staff. This webpage will attempt to present valuable, relevant, reliable information to our audience on a periodic basis. It will provide information concerning the EOs, their implementation and legal developments, and travel. We urge you to stay informed by referring to reliable news sources.

On March 15, 2017, the U.S. District Court for Hawaii issued a temporary restraining order enjoining nationwide the federal government from enforcing or implementing Sections 2 and 6 of the March 6, 2017 Executive Order (No. 13780).

Travel Advisory regarding Advance Parole.
