A new policy has been implemented by the Trump Administration requiring most foreign nationals to provide their social media information when applying for U.S visas. Individuals will begin to be questioned about their social media handles and how they identify online. Government officials will scan applicants social media accounts and check for any red flags before issuing a visa. Applicants who do not use social media will not be penalized. If they were to hide their social media history, they may be subject to serious consequences. This policy was created in reaction to President Trump's March 2017 executive order: "Protecting The Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into The United States"
