While the process for a start-up company to obtain initial visa status for certain employees may go smoothly, if a company does not plan for employee visa status extensions from the very outset, then the company may find that its employees do not qualify for these visa extensions when the time comes. Panelists will address how to avoid this problem and advise on what to do if it should arise.
