Business immigration law may change under Biden

On Behalf of | May 11, 2022

The recent election of Joe Biden may be the signal for some sweeping changes in business immigration law. This is sure to affect the cases of people who are attempting to immigrate in order to work in New Jersey. It’s worth taking a look at what some of these changes may be. Doing so can help you plan your next move.

Executive actions may affect business immigration policy

Many of the laws and policies that govern the area of business immigration were altered during the recent Trump administration. Now that Joe Biden has come to power, experts are pointing to a further round of changes that may take place. These are changes that are projected to bring immigration policy back to the standards of the Obama era.

Some of the changes may include the reversal of a large number of recently enacted travel ban policies. These are bans that cover people who are present in the Schengen area, Brazil, China, and Iran. People who travel from these areas to the U.S. to do business will now have a better chance of getting a visa.

Certain programs and visas may be reinstated

You should also note that a certain number of bans on the issuing of visas may also soon be reversed. This may include a reversal of the current ban on issuing immigrant visas and non-immigrant L-1 and H-1 visas. This may also be a spur to the resumption of business immigration.

The general trajectory of the Biden administration seems to be to reverse many of the protectionist policies enacted during the Trump era. This is a change that promises to make it much easier for immigrants to come to the U.S. in order to gain employment. How much really will change remains to be seen.
