  • Coronavirus is continuing its spread across the world with more than 81 million confirmed cases in 190 countries and more than 1.7 million deaths. The virus is surging in many regions and countries that had apparent success in suppressing initial outbreaks are also seeing infections rise again. The recent jump and fall in the 56-day trend for global cases were caused by Turkey announcing 800,000 previously unreported infections.
  • The virus, which causes the respiratory infection Covid-19, was first detected in the city of Wuhan, China, in late 2019. The outbreak spread quickly across the globe in the first months of 2020 and was declared a global pandemic by the WHO on 11 March.
  • A pandemic is when an infectious disease is passing easily from person to person in many parts of the world at the same time. Necessary SOP’S are religiously followed across the globe since then which includes social distancing, wearing a mask, and sanitization of hands frequently.

That’s the only way we can come of this crisis let this be the chance to once again recall the lost feel of brotherhood and unity. Let's extract good out of all these bad phases.

Coronavirus and Immigration.
Find out how COVID-19 is impacting immigration to the United States?

  • The outbreak of the novel coronavirus has been declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO). Numerous countries, including the United States, have implemented travel or entry restrictions at their ports of entry. These changes will impact nonimmigrant visa holders as well as certain immigrants. The outbreak has also disrupted immigration services and proceedings within the United States.
  • The American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) has published a report looking at the ways different countries are responding to the outbreak. Here are the latest updates:
  • Households with family members of mixed immigration status will be eligible for coronavirus stimulus payments as part of the new COVID-19 relief package expected to pass Congress on Monday. The previous relief package in March excluded payments to undocumented immigrants and their families, as well as to those who were in the country legally but did not qualify for a Social Security Number. DOS updated its announcement and FAQs on the phased resumption of visa services, noting that it will resume routine visa services on a post-by-post basis, but is unable to provide a specific date for when each mission will resume specific visa services, or when each mission will return to the processing at pre-COVID levels. DOS also announced that it has extended the validity of Machine Readable Visa (MRV) fees until December 31, 2021, to allow all applicants who were unable to schedule a visa appointment due to the suspension of routine consular operations an opportunity to schedule and/or attend a visa appointment with the fee they already paid.
