Throughout his administration, President Trump has imposed a travel ban against many countries from the Middle East. Countries affected include Iran, Iraq, and Syria; to list a few. Despite the travel ban against these countries, there are some visas that are offered to the citizens of these countries that will allow them to enter the United States. The J-1 visa, also known as the Exchange Visitors visa is one of the visas that will allow a citizen from a banned country to enter the US. The J-1 visa is the cultural affairs, exchange of faculty, researchers and students. This means that professors or scholars, students, specialists, and a few other scholarly workers from banned countries can apply for this visa to enter the United States.
