For now, we still aren’t recommending any nonessential travel outside the US, particularly if you don’t have a valid visa. But for those trying to get visas, there may be some hope. We will keep you posted as we learn more. In the meantime, please feel free to contact me or your OIS immigration specialist if you have questions or concerns about your situation.
