Traveling in the Age of Uncertainty

The Trump administration’s recent immigration travel ban sent reverberations throughout the country, taking the form of mass protests at major airports.

As a travel club with members who love traveling, we wanted to address some worries that we’ve heard over the last few days. Even though these polices are aimed at select groups, travelers of all backgrounds and ethnicities are concerned about what’s next.

Traveling in the Age of Uncertainty

As of now, there shouldn’t be anything that should detract you from leaving the US, as long as you have all of your documents in order such as passports and government-issued IDs. Keep in mind of the six-month validity rule with passports so you don’t get stranded.

However, there seems to be confusion about how the ruling will affect green card holders and dual citizens not of the seven banned countries (Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen). CNN’s Dan Merica goes into more depth, but essentially, green card holders returning to the states will be subject to a secondary screening before being allowed back into the country.

As we’ve seen over the past couple of weeks, a lot can happen between now and your summer vacation. That’s why it is important as ever to:

  1. Stay informed on travel updates (the nightly news, Department of StateDepartment of Homeland Security).
  2. Speak to a professional for insight on the tourism landscape. You can reach our travel agents at 800-879-7779.

If you have travel plans, we can only suggest that to wait and see what happens before you cancel the vacation you’ve been waiting for.
