Iberia receives confirmation of suspension of Trump's Muslim travel veto after Federal judge blocks the ban
05 February 2017 @ 19:19

SPANISH national airline Iberia has received official confirmation that citizens of the seven 'banned' majority-Muslim countries can now travel to the USA, as long as they have the required papers.

This includes anyone with a valid green card, visa – student, tourist or work – or who is resident in the country temporarily or permantly.

Iberia says it has been told it can now allow passengers with passports from Iraq, Yemen, Iran, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Libya to board flights to the United States, as a Federal judge from the State of Washington has overturned president Donald Trump's 90-day veto on citizens of these countries travelling to the USA.

Legal action against the veto was presented by the States of Minnesota and Washington, and has been upheld.

Trump has announced he will appeal.

In the meantime, however, the veto has been suspended, announces the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Office in the USA.

Given that anyone holding dual nationality – that of any of the seven countries and another nation, including the UK and the USA – has also been affected by the ban, it means they will no longer be denied travel.
