New Travel Restrictions Will Not Impact Visa Classifications Commonly Used for U.S. Graduate Medical Education (GME)

On January 31, 2020, President Donald Trump issued his “Proclamation on Improving Enhanced Vetting Capabilities and Processes for Detecting Attempted Entry.”  Non-immigrant visa classifications, such as the J-1 and H-1B, are NOT impacted by the new restrictions.  Therefore, there should be no impact on individuals seeking non-immigrant visas to participate in U.S. GME.

Additional information is available on the Resources on Presidential Proclamations web page.
