U.S. Immigration Ban During COVID-19


President Donald Trump signed an executive order on 4/22/2020 halting the issuance of green cards for the next 60 days.

However, this does not affect foreign nurses looking to work in the U.S. The order specified that “medical professionals, defined as “a physician, nurse, or other healthcare professionals” working to combat COVID-19, are exempt, and may bring their spouses and unmarried children under 21.

Interstaff is sincerely thankful to all healthcare professionals currently fighting against COVID-19. You’re in our thoughts and prayers.
