President Donald Trump has signed a new executive order placing a 90-day ban on people from six mainly Muslim nations.
Axar.az reports that, Iraq - which was covered in the previous seven-nation order - has been removed from the new one after agreeing additional visa vetting measures.
The directive, which includes a 120-day ban on all refugees, takes effect on 16 March to limit travel disruption. The previous order, which was blocked by a federal court, sparked confusion at airports and mass protests.
