Admissibility Issues in Employment-Based Cases
November 9, 2021
2:00 PM (ET)
Immigration attorneys who have predominantly employment-based cases may feel insulated from dealing with matters of inadmissibility or visa ineligibility; however, they should not be lulled into a false sense of security. Even employment-based beneficiaries come with a past and identifying/dealing with issues that may prevent or delay visa issuance once a petition is approved may not only determine the success of the case but influence your ongoing relationship with the corporate client. The panelists giving this intermediate presentation will provide an overview of the most common issues of inadmissibility that arise in employment-based cases and how to deal with them.
- Past Criminal Activity Outside the United States
- Alcohol– and Drug-Related Issues and Health Grounds
- Past U.S. Immigration Violations
- Vetting the Beneficiary’s Public “Persona” on Social Media, LinkedIn, etc.
- Misrepresentation Based on Previous Visa Applications or Submissions to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)
- Dealing With Extensions When a Consular Waiver Was Issued
