I have a question on this specific part, if anyone can help me understand. I am LPR sponsoring my husband (F2A Category, not excempt from ban), who is a health care worker (Clinical Lab Scientist, also has B-Pharm). Is it worth inquiring about an exemption so he can work here since health care workers are desperately needed? If yes, who would we inquire with? (We're at NVC stage)

The EO says "Sec3.  Implementation and Enforcement.  (a)  The consular officer shall determine, in his or her discretion, whether an immigrant has established his or her eligibility for an exception in section 2(b) of this proclamation."

 

So it sounds like the means to address it is via the CO at the interview. Although personally I would inquire beforehand (with the consulate) and bring evidence that they would fall under it to the interview as well.

So this would technically mean anyone with a K1 visa is still going to be able to enter the USA and that this ban does not apply because is a non-inmigrant visa-? I hope this is true and makes sense.

Although not specifically mentioned, it seems the under 21yo stepchildren of US citizens aren't affected by this EO.

I saw your post in the other thread but then it refreshed and I couldn't find it anymore lol. I do believe it makes sense that your case is not affected. A 6yo won't steal any American any job. But I am only guessing.
