The Biden Administration has published plans to reform the US immigration system and provide better opportunities for foreign nationals to secure work visas and join their families.
The latest guidance from the US State Department has further expanded qualifying exceptions to the US travel ban. One of the key exceptions now includes “travellers providing vital support or executive direction for significant economic activity in the United States.”
The US is set to fully implement the International Entrepreneur Rule (IER) to allow certain foreign-born entrepreneurs to come to the US for up to 5 years to start or grow their business in the USA.
National interest exceptions (NIE) to the US regional travel bans have now been expanded to include immigrant and fiancé(e) travelers and certain exchange visitors.
