On Thursday, February 9th, 2017, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals declined to lift the temporary restraining order barring implementation of the executive order banning travel into the U.S. by citizens of 7 countries (Libya, Syria, Iran, Iraq, Somalia, Sudan, Yemen). Pending further review by the courts, this means that students and scholars from the 7 countries should continue to be able to be admitted into the U.S. and to schedule appointments for visa interviews at U.S. Consulates.
