Admissibility, Revocation, and Public Health: “Risky” Business - Recording (.MP3)
Visa revocation historically has not been common for employment-based visas: once a visa is secured, the employee’s status is merely monitored. Recently, however, U.S. consulates have revoked visas when an individual is charged (not convicted) with a DUI, claiming that the individual poses a risk to public safety as a potential habitual drunkard. The panelists will examine the public health admissibility issue, attempt to predict what other conduct public health inadmissibility might be expanded to include, and consider ways to protect and advocate for your client.
