During this unprecedented time, there has been some uncertainty around immigration to the United States. On April 22, President Donald Trump signed an executive order barring some immigration to the United States for 60 days.
Who's exempt from this immigration ban?
The order doesn't apply to spouses and minor children of US citizens; healthcare professionals; any member of the US Armed Forces and their spouses and children; and anyone entering for law enforcement or national security reasons.
What does this mean for international registered nurses who are waiting to come to the U.S.?
In other words, healthcare professionals who are coming to the U.S. to work the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis can continue with their visa process and their journey to America. The order also allows any spouse or unmarried children under 21 years old of healthcare professionals to accompany or follow in joining them to the U.S.
