Applebee’ s US passport application for entry into the United States has been approved, despite being blocked by the US government.
Applebee s US visa application was also blocked, despite it being issued in 2016.
The news comes as US President Donald Trump has promised to end the visa process for refugees, while announcing plans to suspend immigration from seven majority Muslim countries in retaliation for the deadly attack in Brussels.
The US Supreme Court, which ruled in June that Trump could temporarily halt the refugee program, has not yet ruled on the visa ban.
Applebee s application for admission into the US has also been approved by the Department of Homeland Security, according to the New York Times.
Applebees application was rejected because it did not meet the criteria set out by the department.
Applebee’s US passport is valid for two years.
