Nadhim Zahawi seek confirmation on President Trump's Executive Order and dual nationals

30th January 2017

Nadhim Zahawi seeks confirmation from the Foreign Secretary that US embassies have received updated advice to ensure dual nationals are not affected by President Trump's Executive Order.

I commend the Foreign Secretary on the work that he did on Sunday into the night to ensure that Britons had safe travel to the United States of America. Has he had clarification from the Administration on whether they have updated the advice to their embassies, because there is confusion? Some embassies are still turning dual nationals away and not allowing them to enter the United States of America.

I am thrilled that neither my hon. Friend, with whom I have travelled many times, nor Sir Mo Farah will be affected by this presidential Executive order. I can confirm that the embassy advice has been updated as we have been speaking.
