Those who were initially blocked from travelling to the U.S from Egypt will now be allowed to resume their flights as U.S courts temporarily halt the executive order Trump instated last week.

In his first week of presidency, Donald Trump banned travellers from seven Middle Eastern, Muslim majority countries from entering the U.S regardless of whether they held valid U.S immigration visas or not. Six travellers in Cairo airport were among the many travellers around the world who were barred from boarding flights to the U.S. Today, those who were initially blocked from travelling were allowed to resume their flights, according to Ahram Online.

The decision came about on Friday as a U.S federal court temporarily blocked Trump’s executive order after investigative efforts. On Saturday, Cairo airport received an official suspension notification from the U.S Customs and Border Protection, and within hours, travellers initially barred by the travel ban were allowed to board flights, direct or transit, bound for the U.S with their visas.
