NewsFlash! Health Insurance Required for Admission on Immigrant Visa, Effective 01 Nov 2019

On Friday, October 4, 2019, President Trump issued an executive order that will bar entry of a foreign national requesting admission on an immigrant visa unless the individual has qualifying health insurance, will have such health insurance within 30 days of admission, or “… has the financial resources to pay for reasonably foreseeable medical costs.” This executive order is scheduled to go into effect on November 1, 2019. This rule does not impact those applying for admission as nonimmigrants (e.g., H1B, F-1, B-1/B-2).
