Chad is off the list of countries under an indefinite travel ban, the White House announced on Tuesday. Libya is being monitored for possible removal as well.

What they're saying: President Trump said Chad has "made additional efforts to cooperate with the United States to help it satisfy" baseline security criteria. He writes that Chad "was receptive to this engagement," and is "terminating the entry restrictions and limitations previously placed on the nationals of Chad," going into effect this Friday.
