Trump to add Tanzania, Nigeria, Sudan to its travel ban list


Tanzania is among seven countries that Donald Trump’s administration plans to add to a group of nations subject to travel restrictions.

Nigeria, Belarus, Eritrea, Kyrgyzstan, Myanmar and Sudan are the countries that the administration has targeted according to Wall Street Journal.

The new restrictions would apply to travelers and immigrants from said countries and wouldn’t necessarily face blanket bans on travel to the US, but could have restrictions placed on specific types of visas, such as business or visitor visas.

Some countries could be banned from participating in the popular diversity visa lottery program, which awards green cards to people in countries with low levels of immigration to the US.

A White official told media that “not all of the restrictions are uniform,” adding that the proposal limits some immigrant visas from one country and other visas from another.

The plans, which are still under review, are based on interagency input from the departments of Homeland Security and State, as well as the White House, according to the official. President Donald Trump will make the final decision on changes to the ban.
