Presidential Proclamation 9994

Newly approved I-130 after 341 days in Nebraska! Now that my husband and I will be dealing with the NVC, it had me wondering how the Presidential Proclamation 9994 will be affecting this process. According to whitehouse.gov,

 

"The suspension and limitation on entry pursuant to section 1 of this proclamation shall not apply to:

(i)any lawful permanent resident of the United States;

(ii)any alien seeking to enter the United States on an immigrant visa as a physician, nurse, or other healthcare professional; to perform medical research or other research intended to combat the spread of COVID-19; or to perform work essential to combating, recovering from, or otherwise alleviating the effects of the COVID-19 outbreak, as determined by the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Homeland Security, or their respective designees;  and any spouse and unmarried children under 21 years old of any such alien who are accompanying or following to join the alien;

(iii)any alien applying for a visa to enter the United States pursuant to the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program;

(iv)any alien who is the spouse of a United States citizen;

(v)any alien who is under 21 years old and is the child of a United States citizen, or who is a prospective adoptee seeking to enter the United States pursuant to the IR-4 or IH-4 visa classifications;

(vi) any alien whose entry would further important United States law enforcement objectives, as determined by the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Homeland Security, or their respective designees, based on a recommendation of the Attorney General or his designee;

(vii)any member of the United States Armed Forces and any spouse and children of a member of the United States Armed Forces;

(viii)any alien seeking to enter the United States pursuant to a Special Immigrant Visa in the SI or SQ classification, subject to such conditions as the Secretary of State may impose, and any spouse and children of any such individual; or

(ix)any alien whose entry would be in the national interest, as determined by the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Homeland Security, or their respective designees."

 

This peaked my interest, as it seems this will be changing the normal process for NVC petitioners. Could this mean faster processing times for those exempt from this proclamation? I'm aware that consulates and embassies are closed anyway, but could it potentially speed up the NVC process? All speculations welcome!

Processing at NVC continues.  However, NVC will not forward cases to individual consulates until they (NVC) have assigned interview dates.  This will create an even longer queue at NVC, imo.  I don't see the process getting any shorter.
