On June 22, 2020, President Trump signed a Presidential Proclamation suspending the entry of certain nonimmigrant visa holders from June 24, 2020 to December 31, 2020. The visa categories affected include H-1B, H-2B, J-1, L-1, and their dependents. The new proclamation only affects individuals seeking to enter the U.S. in one of these nonimmigrant visa categories on or after the effective date. It does not affect the ability of individuals who are already in the U.S. to extend or change their nonimmigrant status from within the U.S. The new proclamation also extends through December 31, 2020, an earlier proclamation suspending the entry of certain immigrants seeking to enter the U.S. as new permanent residents.
