Legal Trends in Consular Adjudications: Updates to the Foreign Affairs Manual
October 26, 2021
2:00 PM (ET)
Given the focus on the impact of COVID-19 on consular processing over the past year, other Department of State (DOS) policy determinations may have gone unnoticed. These changes, however, are critically important to preparing successful visa applications. The faculty on this intermediate panel will review the most important changes to the Foreign Affairs Manual (FAM) over the past year to highlight policies that have either been repealed/replaced by the new administration or those that were under threat by the previous administration but currently remain in effect.
- General Updates to the FAM and How to Monitor Changes
- The Current Blanket L Standard of Review
- The Fate of the B-1 in Lieu of H-1B
- Changes in the FAM That Affect E-Adjudication
- The Repeal of Buy American Hire American (BAHA)
- Public Charge Determinations at Consular Posts
