The U.S. is preparing to impose restrictions that will make it more difficult for pregnant women to travel to the U.S. on tourist visas. Though consular officers cannot ask whether a woman is or plans to become pregnant, applicants will be denied if consular officers determine they are traveling to the U.S. primarily to give birth. The restrictions are aimed at restricting “birth tourism” and take effect today, January 24.
