US imposes new strict visa application rules on Muslim Nations

Donald Trump led administration has just set new rules for visa applicants mainly for Six muslim coutries and all refugees. According to report, all the applicants must have a close family or business tie to United State before applying.

The rules, affecting people from Iran, Libya, Syria, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen, come into force on Thursday.

They were issued after the Supreme Court partially reinstated President Donald Trump's travel ban.

According to the new rules, confirmed to the BBC, for the next 90 days those without a close relationship - defined as a parent, spouse, child, son or daughter-in-law, or sibling - will not be able to enter the US.

Also exempt from the new rules are those with business or educational ties to the United States.

However, the guidelines specifically state that the relationship must be formal, documented and formed in ordinary course, rather than for the purpose of evading the executive order.

Those who already hold valid visas are not affected. Dual nationals who travel on their passport from the unaffected country will also be allowed entry.
