U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has confirmed that President Trump’s latest travel ban on nonimmigrant work visas does not apply to Canadian nationals.
BAL Analysis: The confirmation from CBP clarifies that Canadians seeking entry in H, L or J status are not prevented from entry under the ban, and may proceed to ports of entry as normal while the proclamation is in effect. However, CBP has not yet issued a formal announcement. Because it may take some time for the agency to disseminate guidance to ports-of-entry, Canadian workers should be advised that they may in the interim encounter delays when seeking entry from Canada. BAL has created an FAQ on the proclamation and will continue to provide updates and analysis regarding the government’s implementation of the proclamation.
