January 27, 2017 Executive Order and Potential Travel Restrictions

We would like to assure all AAS members and others planning to attend the annual conference in Toronto that we are closely monitoring the current situation and will provide relevant updates on any new developments that might affect travel plans and conference participation. The AAS board of directors also is composing a statement criticizing the discriminatory nature of the executive order issued by the new administration. In the meantime, please refer to the following links regarding travel preparation and required documentation, particularly the section devoted to re-entry to the US for F-1 student visa holders. If you have any questions, please contact aasconference@asian-studies.org.
