Suspension of Certain Nonimmigrant Visas

SUMMARY:   Certain nonimmigrant work visas (exceptions apply) have been suspended, from June 24, 2020 to December 31, 2020.

Suspension of Certain Nonimmigrant Visas

Due to high unemployment resulting from COVID-19, certain nonimmigrant work visas have been suspended from entry into the U.S., starting June 24, 2020 until December 31, 2020. This suspension was issued on June 22, 2020. Recommendations for further immigration changes may take place within 30 days of June 24, 2020, and every 60 days after that.

This entry suspension or limitation of nonimmigrant work visa is in addition to the existing suspension on certain immigrant visas (green card or lawful permanent residence cases). Its suspension is also extended to December 31 2020.

The suspended nonimmigrant work visas are H-1B, H-2B, J, L visas, and their dependents. For J visa, the affected foreign nationals are those coming for intern, trainee, teacher, camp counselor, au pair, or summer work travel program.

Certain exceptions apply to the nonimmigrant visa suspension. For examples, the above nonimmigrant visa are suspended from entry into the U.S. if:
(a)   the foreign national is outside of the U.S. as of June 22, 2020;
(b)   does not have a valid nonimmigrant visa stamp as of June 22, 2020; and
(c)    does not have an official travel document other than a visa (e.g. transportation letter, an appropriate boarding foil, or an advance parole document) as of June 22, 2020.

2.      The nonimmigrant work visa suspension does not apply to:
(a)   any lawful permanent resident;
(b)   any alien who is the spouse or child, as defined in section 101(b)(1) of the INA (8 U.S.C. 1101(b)(1)), of a United States citizen;
(c)    any alien seeking to enter the United States to provide temporary labor or services essential to the United States food supply chain; and
(d)   any alien whose entry would be in the national interest as determined by the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Homeland Security, or their respective designees.
