The temporary work visa ban the Trump administration implemented early last summer expired Wednesday.
The ban, Proclamation 10052, blocked foreign nationals in certain temporary work visa categories, including H-1B, L-1 and J-1, from entering the U.S. On Dec. 31, 2020, the Trump administration extended the ban to March 31, 2021. The Biden administration declined to renew it.
Additional Information: The Biden administration let the work visa ban lapse after rescinding the Trump administration’s immigrant visa ban in February.
BAL Analysis: The decision to let the work visa ban lapse is a welcome sign, but traveling to the U.S. remains challenging for many foreign nationals. Regional travel restrictions are still in place, and applicants should expect significant delays in obtaining visa appointments as consular operations gradually resume. Foreign nationals should consult with their BAL professional before planning any international travel. BAL continues to monitor COVID-19 entry and travel restrictions and will provide updates as information becomes available.
