The Australian Government has received assurances from the United States Administration that all Australian passport holders remain welcome to travel to the US.

The White House has confirmed the US Executive Order of January 27 will not affect any Australian passport holder irrespective of their country of birth or whether they hold another passport.

Australia and the United States have a longstanding alliance and partnership across economic, national security, strategic and trade matters which will continue to grow.

The Australian Government is committed to advancing our national interest and protecting the interests of Australian citizens and we will continue to do so.
