After several years of attempts to do away with the International Entrepreneur Parole rule, the Biden administration has brought it back to life. However, there is a lot still unknown about how U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is adjudicating these cases and what the crux or common challenges facing practitioners and foreign entrepreneurs utilizing this rule. The faculty on this basics panel will discuss filing tactics, trends, and what we have learned through the early stages of the program.


Featured Topics:

  • Current State of the Program
  • Do’s and Don’ts of Preparing Parole Petitions
  • RFE Trends for Entrepreneurs
  • Common Challenges with Cases
