Travel ban expands to more countriesPresident Donald Trump’s controversial travel ban will morph into a new set of restrictions on travelers from an expanded set of countries, U.S. officials announced Sunday night.

The current policy, which denies visas to citizens of six majority Muslim countries, will be replaced by a new set of travel limits on eight countries, including all but one of those on the previous list. The nations facing travel restrictions under the new policy are Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, Venezuela and Yemen, officials said Sunday. Existing visa-holders are exempt, and waivers will remain available for travelers with U.S. ties.

One country on the current list, Sudan, was dropped from the new restrictions, which will take effect Oct. 18.

As the president prepared to return from his New Jersey golf club to the White House Sunday afternoon, he was asked what provisions he wanted to see in the latest set of travel restrictions.
