The new regulations require a distinction between B1 visas and B2 visa applications for entry into the United States, and the standards are more transparent in order to facilitate fairer rulings and enforcement at customs inspections.
B1 is a short-term business visit and B2 is an applicant for travel and short-term medical services. B1 is suitable for attending meetings, negotiating contracts and handling real estate. Under the New Deal, there will be a clearer definition of the two types of visas, and the applicants are required to have a clear purpose in the United States.
Expected effective time: September 2019
 
Change 2: Major reform of the F1 visa
specific contents:   
US Customs has set a minimum stay time limit in the United States for non-immigrant visas including F1 student visas.
You can apply for an extension before the deadline, but you must give sufficient reasons and specific extension time, otherwise it will affect the legal stay in the United States. Suitable for people: Class F student visa, Class B tourist visa, H2B, H4, J1, J2, M1, E1, E2, Class I and other non-immigrant visas.
Expected effective time: August 2019
 
Change 3: H1B threshold increase
specific contents:   
1. Modify the definition of Professional Occupation to limit the application and issuance of H1B to ensure that work visas are issued to “the most intelligent and showy foreigners”; if this proposal goes into effect, it will become a reform of H1B scale since 1990. 2, change the HB lottery rules. First, all applicants will be included in the 6,5000 regular places for lottery. If the upper limit is reached, then 20,000 places will be drawn from the remaining masters and above, which will increase the success rate of H1B applicants for master's degree and above. 15%. 3. Ask the employer to pay a reasonable salary to the H1B holder. This proposal is to give H1B opportunities to more professional talents. If this proposal is implemented, it may be more difficult for Chinese students with a bachelor's degree in the future to stay directly through H1B.
Expected effective time: August 2019
 
Change 4: H4 is to be disqualified from legal work
specific contents:   
In 2015, the Immigration Service issued a notice that when a person holding a H1B work visa meets certain conditions, the spouse can work legally in the United States with an H4 visa and obtain an EAD work card. The new proposal pointed out that the legal work of H4 greatly affected the job opportunities of Americans and proposed to cancel the EAD badge. At present, there are more than 4,000 H4 work card holders from mainland China, 90% of whom are women. Applicable people: H1B and their spouses | Change 5: EB5 investment or redefinition of designated areas Specific content: The Department of Homeland Security will redefine the criteria for “employment creation” and may specify regional centers and operating conditions for investment in the future. The Department of Homeland Security will strengthen the management and inspection of investment plans, and encourage more investment in the rural areas of the United States.
Expected effective time: September 2019
 
Change 6: Accelerate Green Card Processing Time
specific contents:   
The Department of Homeland Security proposed to improve the green card application or adjust the efficiency of I485 in the US, reduce the possibility of visa retreat, remove accumulated inventory, and prevent visa fraud. Applicants who are advised to cancel the priority category immigrant visa are also required to submit a visa application and an I-485 form. Expected effective time: September 2019

Change 7: Face recognition for entry and exit
specific contents:   
The Department of Homeland Security requires automated access to data systems: face recognition technology that biometrically identifies data from all foreigners and citizens entering and leaving the United States to prevent foreign terrorists from entering the United States. These systems are now fully ready.
