Suspension of H-1B visas

Page last updated: January 4, 2021

On June 22, 2020, the U.S. president signed a proclamation suspending the entry of non-immigrants in certain work visa categories. The proclamation has been extended until March 31, 2021.

We understand you may have questions about how this order will apply to your specific situation.

Because of the uncertainty regarding entry, we strongly advise against any international travel for the duration of the proclamation.
