Executive Order Information

On September 24, 2017, a proclamation was made to augment the March 6, 2017, Executive Order (EO) 13780. The current restrictions set out under the March 6, 2017, Executive Order, in compliance with court modifications, are still in effect. On October 18, 2017, new conditions will take effect.

Georgia Tech is sensitive to the impact of the executive orders on our community. The Office of International Education and the Office Human Resources strive to be a resource and advocate to Georgia Tech’s international faculty, student and scholar community and to all of our colleagues. To that end, we would like to provide specific and clear guidance and minimize uncertainty where possible. 

The OIE international student and scholar advisors and Global HR staff are available to provide additional assistance or guidance. We encourage anyone holding a U.S. visa and citizenship in any of the countries listed in the new executive order not to travel until after a consultation with an immigration attorney.  OIE student/scholar advisors are available to individuals with questions by email at info@oie.gatech.edu, during walk-in advising hours, and by appointment, at 404-894-7475 and Global HR staff are available by appointment immigration@ohr.gatech.edu.

President Peterson’s remarks from March 2017 continue to ring true. “Georgia Tech is a stronger, better place because of the contributions of our international community. You are welcome here, and you are valued.”

Specific information to F and J students and scholars will continue to be posted on OIE website as it becomes available. The NAFSA: Association of International Educators and the Council on Global Immigration are additional resources. The Campus-wide Guidance Regarding Travel, Immigration, and Visas will continue to offer broad resources and information.

More information on the Executive Order page.
