that will means people without “close” family or business relationships within the US could be denied visas in addition to barred entry.

Lawyers took up positions at US airports, offering free advice.

although there was no sign of the chaos that will affected travellers when the first variation of the ban was brought in at a few hours’ notice in January.

that will will be because the executive order does not affect people who already have valid visas or green cards.

The Department of Homeland Security said that will expected “business as usual at our ports of entry”.

  • Monday’s Supreme Court ruling upheld the temporary ban, a key Trump policy.

although the judges provided a major exception, for those who have “a credible claim of a bona fide relationship” with someone within the US.

The effect will be that will citizens of the affected countries having a close relative within the US, such as a spouse, parent, child or sibling, will potentially be allowed in.

In a last minute change, the Trump administration extended the definition of close family to include fiancés.

However grandparents, aunts, uncles, nephews in addition to nieces are not considered to be “bona fide” relations.The rules apply to people through Iran, Libya, Syria, Somalia, Sudan in addition to Yemen, as well as to all refugees.

Moments before the ban began at 20:00 Washington time on Thursday (00:00 GMT), that will emerged that will the state of Hawaii had asked a federal judge for clarification.

Hawaii’s attorney general has argued that will the definition of “close family” will be too narrow in addition to may improperly prevent people through travelling to the US.      -BBC
