As of April 1st, the Trump Non-immigrant Visa ban which applied to certain new visas including H and L categories was allowed to expire. If you were subject to the ban you may now seek a visa. If you were denied a visa due to the ban, you may now apply again, paying the fee again. If you applied but, were placed in administrative processing, you should reach out to your HNM attorney to discuss whether or not it is appropriate to wait for a decision or to re-file. The DOS has updated its information on the resumption of Consular activities.
