Extension of Presidential Proclamations Suspending Certain Immigrant and Non-Immigrant Entries

On December 31, 2020, President Trump issued a proclamation continuing Proclamations 10014 and 10052. The proclamations suspended the entry of certain immigrants and non-immigrants into the United States in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. They were due to expire on December 31 and have been continued until March 31, 2021.

Proclamation 10052 went into effect on June 24 and limits the entry of non-immigrants on H-1B, H-2B, L, and most J visas, and their spouses or children. Proclamation 10014 went into effect on April 23 and suspends the entry of those seeking admission using an immigrant visa. The restrictions apply to those outside of the US without a valid visa on the date the proclamations respectively became effective.

There are numerous exemptions, including for permanent residents, children and spouses of US citizens, and those whose entry would be in the “national interest.” Those issued other forms of valid travel documentation – such as Advanced Parole – may also be able to travel.
