Travel Advisory

Posted June 23, 2020Stephanie Wedel - Sr. AssociateArticles

Given the recent Presidential Proclamation there is some additional travel guidance for foreign nationals in the U.S.:

  • Individuals in H-1B, H-2B, H-4, L-1A, L-1B, L-2, J-1, and J-2 status who do not have valid visa stamps should cancel any international travel plans until after the end of the year. Individuals with valid visa stamps in their passports will still be admitted, but new visas stamps will not be issued.
  • Due to COVID-19, many consulates are still closed, and visa stamping appointments are not available. As such, we recommend remaining in the U.S. and avoiding international travel in order to obtain a visa stamp.
  • Many countries still have a travel ban due to COVID. Admission will not be granted if you have been to these countries within 14 days of your arrival to the U.S.  COVID -19 specific information for travel can be found here.

Please reach out to your designated Meltzer Hellrung attorney before making any travel plans.
