As an update to our blog on June 22, 2020, we have now received confirmation from US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) headquarters, consistent with our earlier interpretation of the President Proclamation, that visa-exempt Canadians are NOT subject to the Proclamation.
Therefore, we hereby confirm that the following individuals are still able to enter the U.S. within the discretion of CBP:
- US Citizens;
- US Lawful Permanent Residents (“Green Card holders”);
- Any alien who is the spouse of a US citizen or Green Card holder;
- Individuals already holding nonimmigrant visa stamps; and
- Canadian citizens who obtain L-1 or TN approvals through USCIS or to be granted at the port-of-entry.
Please keep in mind that as the US immigration landscape changes frequently and drastically through the rest of this year, our firm is staying on top of it and will continue to update our clients and business partners.
