Travel ban: People denied entry to United States can reapply


 Muslim ban

People denied entry to the US under President Donald Trump's first travel ban can now reapply for visas following a legal settlement reached in a federal court.

The US government will now contact individuals turned away at borders as a result of the executive order that came into force on January 27, BBC reported on Friday.

The agreement does not guarantee that applicants will receive new visas.

Trump signed the original order in January barring people from seven Muslim countries from entering the US. The move sparked numerous protests and legal challenges.
