CGS Summary of June 22 Executive Order
    June 26, 2020

    On June 22, the White House published an executive order extending its original April 22 proclamation to suspend immigrant visas (green cards) and halting certain work visas through December 31, 2020. The proclamation does not impact F-1 or M-1 visas or the Optional Practical Training Program. CGS has prepared a summary on the relationship between the two executive orders.
