What if you are put on the no-fly list while overseas (“forced exile”)? CAIR’s travel advisory contains detailed information regarding the rights that you have (and don’t have) as a traveler and offers steps that you should take if you find yourself being unable to return to the United States due to the FBI or other agency placing you on the no-fly list while you are away and without reason. All travelers headed to and from Cuba, Iran, Sudan, Syria, Afghanistan, Algeria, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Nigeria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Somalia and Yemen should be aware of this possibility.
