YEMENI NATIONALS

ARE YOU EXPERIENCING AN UNREASONABLE DELAY IN THE ADJUDICATION OF A TRAVEL BAN WAIVER?

You are not alone and we are here to help. Many Yemeni national visa applicants refused under the travel ban are supposed to be automatically considered for waivers of the ban.  However, most applicants experience unreasonable delays in the adjudication of their waivers. Part of the reason for the delays is that the hands of consular officers have been tied, as the Visa Office is unlawfully requiring its concurrence for all approvals.  


One solution that we recommend is a writ of mandamus, a fancy term for a lawsuit with the goal of compelling the government to do what it already has a duty to do. After filing a writ of mandamus, a federal court can order the State Department to adjudicate a waiver under the travel ban. A writ of mandamus does not guarantee the grant of a waiver from the travel ban.


Petitions for writ of mandamus have proved to be successful in many cases, by compelling the State Department to make its decisions on waivers, or face discovery, prolonged litigation, and the scrutiny of the courts and the media. Further, the petitions can be brought on behalf of individual families, or a joinder action with multiple families who are similarly-situated.
