UPDATE JUNE 24, 2020: “Proclamation Suspending Entry of Immigrants Who Present Risk to the U.S. Labor Market During the Economic Recovery Following the COVID-19 Outbreak” Now Extended to Certain Nonimmigrant Visa Categories

On June 22, 2020, President Trump signed a proclamation continuing Proclamation 10014 (issued on April 22, 2020) and extending it to include suspension of the entry of certain nonimmigrants effective on June 24, 2020, at 12:01 am (ET) through at least until December 31, 2020. Due to the lack of unified guidance and implementation by the relevant government agencies, we do not recommend international travel at this time. Please contact an attorney to discuss travel risks relevant to your circumstances.

Specifically, the proclamation issued on June 22, 2020 is an extension of the Trump Administration’s previous suspension of immigrant visas. The extension of that order now also affects H-1B, H-2B, L-1 and certain J-1 visa holders and their dependents. Foreign nationals who are outside the U.S. on the date of this order but who have a valid visa stamp in their passport should be able to re-enter the U.S., as long as they are not subject to another travel ban (including stays in the Schengen region, U.K., Ireland, Brazil, or China). Please view the full proclamations from June 22, 2020 here and from April 22, 2020 here for more information.
