I'm a British Citizen holding an L1 Visa, currently employed in the US.
I may need to travel internationally soon. I am concerned about re-entry to the US at the end of this travel (I may be away for up to 6 months).
I believe the rules currently state that I am permitted to enter (provided I have not been in certain countries in the preceding 14 days). However I am also aware that L1 (and other Visa types) are currently not being issued and I could run into difficulty if the officer on the day is in a bad mood.
Should the officer decide to deny entry, what would be the options presented to me for appeal and how quickly would the process take place?
EDIT - to clarify - There's no reason for me to believe that I'm any more or less likely to be denied entry than an average Brit. Prior to COVID and the presidential proclamations, I was a regular international traveler with Global Entry. I may well be worried about nothing, but forewarned is forearmed and that is the purpose of this question.
