The United States Supreme Court has allowed portions of President Trump’s travel ban to take effect; citizens from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen may be denied admission to the United States if they lack any bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States. On the other hand, the opinion stated that the travel ban may not be enforced against foreign nationals who have a credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States.

The June 26, 2017, decision suggests that U.S. employers lawfully employing or seeking to employ foreign nationals from one of the six listed countries should not be impacted by the travel ban given that a bona fide relationship can be established through a job offer.

The Supreme Court also confirmed it would hear the case in full in the fall of 2017.
