As you are likely aware, the administration just issued a new executive order restricting entry of H-1B/H-2B, L, and J visa (intern, trainee, teacher, camp counselor, au pair, or summer work travel program) holders and their dependents to the U.S. until the end of the year. We are analyzing the order and will provide more information in the next few days. Our preliminary review of the order indicates that the ban on entry is not all encompassing and there will be a number of exemptions to the ban. We will need to wait for further guidance from the Department of State and the Department of Homeland Security on the exemptions from the ban. Notably, the ban only applies to those who are outside the U.S. on June 22, 2020, who do not already have a valid non-immigrant visa.
