Last night at midnight, former President Trump’s ban on nonimmigrant visas expired. With the expiration of Proclamation 10052, many categories of nonimmigrants will no longer be prevented from seeking entry to the United States. “The nonimmigrant entry ban was based on a false premise that foreign nationals take away jobs and hurt the American economy,” says Jesse Bless, AILA’s Director of Federal Litigation. DOS stated that visa applicants who have not yet been interviewed or scheduled for an interview will have their applications prioritized and processed per existing phased resumption of visa services guidance. Applicants who were refused visas due to the restrictions of the proclamation may reapply by submitting a new application including a new fee.
