TAIPEI, Taiwan — The American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) said on Sunday that
Taiwanese visitors to the United States entering under the Taiwan-U.S. visa waiver would not be affected by a recent change in US immigration policy.
U.S. President Donald Trump signed a controversial executive order banning restricting immigration from seven predominantly Muslim countries — Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. The ban also suspends the “visa interview waiver program.”
AIT spokesperson Sonia Urbom stressed that the “visa interview waiver program” is not the same as the “visa waiver program” overseen by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, adding that conditions relating to the latter would not change. [FULL STORY]
