On June 22, 2020, President Trump signed a proclamation suspending and limiting the U.S. entry of foreign nationals on H-1B, H-2B, J (as intern, trainee, teacher, camp counselor, au pair, or summer work travel program) and L visas and any individuals accompanying or following to join them.
The proclamation applies to those who are outside the U.S. on June 24, 2020 and do not have such non-immigrant visa or official travel document that is valid on that day.
The suspension and limitation on entry does not apply to lawful permanent residents, spouses and children of the U.S. citizens, essential workers, individuals whose entry would be in the national interest.
The proclamation shall expire on December 31, 2020, and may be continued.

My client is a global marketing and branding company and
filed a H-1B petition for a position of an Interior Designer. The H-1B registration was selected in the
H-1B lottery. The Client was very
cooperative and provided all documents necessary to show to the USCIS
satisfaction that the Interior Designer is a specialty occupation according to
the regulations. In this case, the Petitioner (Client) normally requires a degree
or its equivalent for the position and a baccalaureate or higher degree or its
equivalent is normally the minimum
requirement for entry into the position of the Interior Designer. The position
of the Interior Designer is also so complex
that it can be performed only by an individual with a degree.
The client provided documents related to the position and showing that the Beneficiary (Employee) meets the requirements for the position. The Beneficiary has a Master of Interior Architecture and has been working for the Client as a junior Interior Designer on her OPT. My client was very happy to receive the approval just in 3 weeks, especially for entry level position. Congratulations!
