    In revising previous executive orders, President Trump states that an individual whose visa was revoked or canceled as a result of Executive Order 13769 may be granted a travel document "confirming that the individual is permitted to travel to the United States and seek entry under the terms and conditions of the visa marked revoked or marked canceled. Any prior cancellation or revocation of a visa that was solely pursuant to Executive Order 13769 shall not be the basis of inadmissibility for any future determination about entry or admissibility."
