On June 22, 2020, the Trump administration released a proclamation entitled “Proclamation Suspending Entry of Aliens Who Present a Risk to the U.S. Labor Market Following the Coronavirus Outbreak.”

This order does not impact our J-1 exchange visitors or F-1 students, including those on OPT or STEM OPT.

The order does impact new H-1B temporary workers who are outside the U.S. and do not have an H-1B visa with an issue date prior to June 24, 2020. OIS will be communicating directly by email with all impacted H-1B individuals very soon with guidance tailored to their circumstances.

We will update this page with more details as they become available.
