Early in the Trump Presidency, executive orders were signed banning travel to the U.S. if you were from certain muslim countries.  Ultimately, the U.S. Supreme Court approved Trump Travel Ban 3.0 on June 26, 2018 and the countries effected are listed below.

On January 31, 2020, the Trump Administration expanded the Travel Ban by adding another 6 countries in Africa and Asia (see chart below). The expanded Travel Ban went into effect on February 21, 2020.
