Update on Executive Order 13769:

The provisional revocation of January 27, 2017, which had revoked all valid visas of nationals of Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen in accordance with Executive Order 13769, “Protecting the Nation from Terrorist Attacks by Foreign Nationals,”  is now lifted, and those visas are now valid for holders otherwise eligible for their visas.  Anyone with a valid visa may now use it to travel to the United States and does not need to apply for a new visa.

 

Crewmember (D) visas are nonimmigrant visas for persons working on board sea vessels or international airlines in the United States, providing services required for normal operation and intending to depart the United States on the same vessel or any other vessel within 29 days. If you travel to the United States to join the vessel you will work on, in addition to a crewmember (D) visa, you also need a transit (C-1) visa or a combination C-1/D visa.
