Executive Order Bars Entry for Certain Nonimmigrants

President Trump's executive order temporarily suspends entry of nonimmigrants seeking H-1B, H-2B, L-1 and J-1 (intern, trainee, camp counselor, au pair or work travel program) status and their dependents until December 31, 2020. The order does not apply to individuals who are currently in the U.S. and seeking a change or extension of their status or for individuals that possess a nonimmigrant visa as of June 24, 2020 as long as the individuals enter U.S. before the visa expires. Those on visas in the U.S. should carefully review visa validity and travel restrictions for their destinations and U.S. return before planning international travel.

The order also does not apply to lawful permanent residents, spouses and children of U.S. citizens, food supply chain workers providing essential services and individuals determined to be in the national interest. The order directs the Department of Labor to monitor EB-2, EB-3 and H-1B visas for further regulation.
