Third-Party Placement: Reviewing the New and Revisiting the Old
December 10, 2019
02:00 PM (ET)
Third-party placement for all nonimmigrant visa types often yields more questions than answers from USCIS and DOS. This uncertain environment frequently leaves practitioners no choice but to “choose their own adventures” regarding how best to proceed. Panelists will review the law and memoranda, and—most importantly—share stories of recent experiences.
