A new immigration order proposed by Donald Trump, the new President of the United States, proposed that people from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen are blocked from entering the United States for the next 30 days, (and refugees from these countries blocked for the next 120 days). This new law directly affects people from those countries travelling to the United States (whether you have lived there previously or not) and it affects over 1 million residents of the UAE

Emirates have changed pilots on crew rosters for US bound flights

According to Reuters, rosters on US bound flights for Emirates were changed to comply with the travel ban. The airline, which is the largest in the UAE, flies daily from Dubai to eleven major US cities including Washington and D.C. and New York, and the ban applies to all flight crew.

Emirates Airlines has said it will comply with the new rules, but will offer refunds or rebook any affected passengers. The airline said passengers were affected over the weekend, but staff were not.

 “We have made the necessary adjustments to our crewing, to comply with the latest requirements.”
