Secretary of State Rex Tillerson ordered U.S. embassies around the world to screen social media of any visa applicant to the U.S. who has ever spent time in territory controlled by the Islamic State, Reuters reports.

Social media is rarely screened by U.S. consular officials when considering visas, and could lengthen the processing time in Middle Eastern embassies. Tillerson’s social media guidance was accompanied by another to order to form working groups to “develop a list of criteria identifying sets of post applicant populations warranting increased scrutiny.”
