Unity opens Unity Without Borders program to support developers affected by US travel ban

Unity has officially launched its Unity Without Borders program to sponsor and support developers affected by the United States' travel ban.

The program will offer support to 50 developers to help them attend Unite Europe. Developers chosen will receive a return flight to and a four-night stay in Amsterdam, a ticket to the event and help with the visa process.

Unity CEO John Riccitiello had previously announced that the company was going to sponsor developers in February 2017. He also stated that it would match any donations to relevant charities from Unity staff up to $1,000.

No matter where you're from

"Unity believes in democratizing game development, solving hard problems, and enabling success no matter where you’re from," said the company in a statement.

"It is those three core beliefs that drives us and it is our hope that Unity Without Borders helps us expose as many developers, artists, programmers and dreamers as possible to our amazing community."

Developers affected by the travel ban can find out more information on applying for the program on its official website.
