Consular processing has become extremely challenging under the current administration. Given the volume of applicants interviewed each day, consular officers are more likely than ever to issue an INA §221(g) for applications that they want more time to assess. Nowhere is this scenario more prevalent than in cases involving H-1B applicants working with consulting companies. For applicants from such companies, a §221(g) response could turn a two-week vacation into a six-month ordeal. Our panel of experts will review recent trends affecting consulting company employees at high-volume consulates in India and China. They also will provide tips and strategies on preparing foreign nationals for the visa interview and working with end users.

  • Trending Issues and Challenges that Consulting Company Employees Face at Visa Interviews
  • Practical Tips and Best Practices: Preparing Foreign Nationals for the Visa Interview
  • Working with a Client’s End Users: Strategies and Approaches
  • Setting and Managing Employer and Employee Expectations
