Immigration Bans Extended to March 31, 2021

A December 31, 2020 Presidential Proclamation extended the immigration bans set to expire on January 1, 2021. This New Year's Eve Proclamation extended Presidential Proclamation 10014, originally made on April 22, 2020, effective April 23, 2020 at 11:59PM EST-affecting both family based and employment based immigration from outside of the U.S. with certain exceptions. Additionally, in this same Proclamation, President Trump extended Presidential Proclamation 10052, originally made on June 22, 2020, effective June 24, 2020 at 12:01AM EST- affecting certain nonimmigrant entry from outside of the U.S.; specifically, it suspended U.S. entry of H-1Bs and H-2Bs and their dependents as well as entry of certain J-1s and their dependents and entry of L-1s and their dependents from outside of the U.S. with certain exceptions. These Proclamations are now set to expire on March 31, 2021, but can be extended as necessary. I am hopeful that President Biden will cancel these temporary bans on immigrants and nonimmigrants upon taking office on January 20, 2021. So far he has been silent on Twitter regarding this recent development.


It is important to consider whether and how this Presidential Proclamation may affect your case or current situation. If you have questions or concerns regarding how this Proclamation may affect you, you may wish to consult with an Immigration Attorney. Attorney Rebecca Carcagno handles immigration law and is available on a consultation basis at (734) 999-0360.
