The United States Centers for Disease Control (“CDC”) has approved a one-month extension on medical evaluations conducted for immigrant visa applications between January 1, 2020 and June 30, 2020.  Immigrant visa applicants who obtained medical clearances as well as those who had their immigrant visas issued but were unable to travel due to movement restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic should contact their nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate to request visa reissuance. Those who are unable to travel within the additional one-month extension are encouraged to wait until they are able to depart to the United States and comply with CDC guidelines which would entail a new medical evaluation and immigrant visa.

Immigrant visa applicants located in Ho Chi Minh City, Manila and Taipei that may qualify for this extension are welcome to contact us at and speak with one of our U.S. immigration attorneys.
