Trump Administration Targets Visa Overstays

On April 22, 2019, the Trump Administration issued a Presidential Memorandum addressing visa overstays and how to combat them.  The Administration will consider requiring admission bonds, limiting visa duration, and suspending entry of individuals from countries with high overstay rates.  An admission bond is a fee that would be paid upon entry, to be returned when the individual departs in a timely fashion.

The Memorandum requires the Secretary of State and the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security to make recommendations within 120 days of its issuance.
