On Monday, President Trump's travel ban aimed at visitors from six predominantly Muslim countries was partially reinstated by a Supreme Court decision. It goes into effect today.  

According to the highest court, those travelers will need to have a "bona fide relationship with any person or entity in the United States."  

The State Department released specific visa guidelines last night to The New York Times. For example, a parent of a legal U.S. resident would be permitted into the country, but a grandparent would not fall under the category of "close family".
