DOS Announces National Interest Exceptions for Certain H-2 Travelers from South Africa

DOS announced that H-2A and certain H-2B travelers covered by the Presidential Proclamation of January 25, 2021, which relates to travelers who have been present in South Africa, may qualify for national interest exceptions. Applicants will be considered for an exception at the time of interview. Current holders of valid H-2A or food-supply-chain related H-2B visas who believe they meet the exception criteria should follow the procedures set forth on the embassy/consulate website where their visa was processed for consideration for an exception.
