Latest reports from Washington indicate that President Donald Trump lifted a U.S. travel ban on citizens from Chad on Tuesday 10/4/2018 after six months ban.
According to White House, the U.S. government has reviewed Chad’s security standards and found it has improved.
The Trump administration added Chad to a revamped travel ban list in September. Trump administration cited that Chadian government had failed to send proof that it had taken adequate security measures to prevent terrorists from traveling to the United States.
With Chad taken off the list, seven countries — Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, North Korea and Venezuela — are still subject to the travel restrictions and remains on the US-ban list.
Trump’s critics have said his travel ban unfairly singled out Muslims, and violated U.S. law and the Constitution.
