The Proclamation We Have All Been Waiting For!

The Biden Administration has just issued its own highly anticipated Proclamation rescinding Proclamation 10014 (Suspension of Entry of Immigrants Who Present a Risk to the United States Labor Market During the Economic Recovery Following the 2019 Novel Coronavirus Outbreak) (as well as section 1 of Proclamation 10052 and section 1 of Proclamation 10131 which extended Proclamation 10014). This means that those aliens who were "banned" from entering the U.S. on an immigrant visa since April 23, 2020 11:59pm EST may now be able to resume their Immigrant Visa Processing or application for U.S. Lawful Permanent Residency from outside of the U.S. The ban will be revoked effective February 24, 2021 despite the previous administration extending it until March 31, 2021. In deciding to revoke the ban, President Biden found that Proclamation 10014 did not advance the interests of the U.S., but rather harmed them; specifically, harm was done to the U.S. citizen and U.S. Lawful Permanent Resident family members, to the U.S. industries, and to the Diversity Visa Lottery winners.

While this is clearly great news, it is not clear how quickly the processing of these cases will be able to resume. For information regarding the processing of a specific case at a U.S. Embassy/Consulate, you would generally first refer to that U.S. Embassy's/Consulate's webpage. As this Proclamation was just issued, it may take some time for the U.S. Embassies/Consulates to update their webpage or to issue their own corresponding announcement. In the meantime, let the celebration of this good news commence!

If you will be or are currently undergoing Immigrant Visa Processing, you may want to consult with an immigration attorney to discuss your case. Attorney Carcagno handles Immigrant Visa Processing and provides a free initial intake consultation (734) 999-0360.
