U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) must protect our borders, simultaneously facilitating efficient travel and trade to the United States. Its varied missions can conflict, thereby creating a challenge for CBP officers that have to make quick decisions on admission issues. Your clients’ first contact when they approach a land border or arrive at a U.S. airport is with a CBP officer that will decide whether (and for how long) they should be admitted. Local practices vary greatly from port to port, and may be daunting to the ill-prepared traveler. This group of experts will discuss how you can best advise your employment-based clients when confronted with various travel-related issues.

Featured Topics

  • How to Best Prepare Your L-1, TN, and B-1 Applicants for Inconsistent Port of Entry (POE) Procedures?
  • Can You Communicate with a POE Prior to, or During, Your Client’s Travel?

  • What Is the “Six-Month Club?”
  • How Can You Get Your Client’s I-94 Corrected If He or She Is Admitted for the Wrong Period of Time or in the Wrong Status?
