President Biden issued a proclamation today that revokes the immigrant visa ban that suspended entry of foreign nationals in immigrant visa (i.e. green card) categories.
BAL Analysis: Biden’s revocation of the immigrant visa ban is a positive sign for those who have been prevented from applying for immigrant visas or from entering the U.S. under the ban. The ban primarily affected family-based immigrants. Today’s proclamation does not revoke the work-visa ban issued on June 22, 2020 (Proclamation 10052), which bans certain temporary nonimmigrant visa categories, including H-1B, L-1 and J-1 visas. That ban is scheduled to expire March 31.
