Your experiences with the US travel ban
The Mobility Info Point at DutchCulture is assessing the effects of the US travel ban on cultural exchange and cooperation.
Per U.S. Presidential Executive Order signed on January 27, 2017, visa issuance to citizens of the countries of Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen has been suspended effective immediately until further notification.
In practice, also people who own a valid visa are denied access to the US, or to flights with destinations in the US. A few days after the announcement, there still is a lot of confusion in response to the sudden decree of president Trump.
As a ‘focus country’ in the Dutch international cultural policy (2017-2020), the US are an important partner for The Netherlands. DutchCulture is currently collecting the consequences of the travel ban on international cultural cooperation.
-Are you a touring musician who is stranded in The Netherlands as a result of the travel ban?
-Are you an artist from one of these countries working in The Netherlands and does your work in the US stall because of your (double) passport?
-Are you working with an artist in exile who legally resides in the US, who can’t leave the country without guarantee of returning?
Your questions and experiences resulting from the travel ban are important for Dutch Culture to chart and address the consequences for artists and cultural professionals. You can share these with Infopoint@dutchculture.nl.reference:dutchculture.nl
