but the key points are:
"The Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has today held conversations with the US Government and as a result we can clarify that:
- The Presidential executive order only applies to individuals travelling from one of the seven named countries.
- If you are travelling to the US from anywhere other than one of those countries (for instance, the UK) the executive order does not apply to you and you will experience no extra checks regardless of your nationality or your place of birth.
- If you are a UK national who happens to be travelling from one of those countries to the US, then the order does not apply to you – even if you were born in one of those countries.
- If you are a dual citizen of one of those countries travelling to the US from OUTSIDE those countries then the order does not apply to you.
The US has reaffirmed its strong commitment to the expeditious processing of all travellers from the United Kingdom."
