    Do you mean because of a COVID-19 restriction or...?

Proclamation 10014, which previously banned immigrants from entering the US, was revoked by Proclamation 10149 on February 24, 2021. If your immigrant visa is still valid, you can use it to enter the US any time before it expires.

Previous answer:

Assuming that the immigrant visa was issued after April 23, 2020, you are banned from entering the US with it by Proclamation 10014, which has been extended to March 31, 2021 by Proclamation 10131. So you cannot enter the US until then (or until the ban is revoked by President Biden if he revokes it before then).

  • Immigrant visas issued before April 2020 have all expired, haven't they?

  • Biden revoked a bunch of immigration restrictions on April 20th. Was this among them?

  • @phoog: You mean January 20? No, this has not been revoked.
