The AILA Global Migration Section (GMS) Consular Liaison Subcommittee is pleased to present a consular webinar as a precursor to the 2022 AILA/GMS Annual Global Migration Forum and Webcast.

This webinar is free for GMS members. GMS membership is free – more information (including how to join) can be found on the GMS AILA.org page.

Just when attorneys thought they were returning to normalcy, a new wave of humanitarian and migration crises came to a head in Afghanistan and Ukraine. In addition, attorneys must continue to prepare for a myriad of travel restrictions to counter COVID-19 variants. These consistent stressors on consulates and processing centers around the world continue to wreak havoc on global mobility as governments balance competing interests. Join our panel of distinguished consular officials as they discuss how their respective governments are navigating the challenging pandemic landscape and humanitarian crises, including any emerging trends.

Featured Topics:

  • The Current State of Global Migration in the Age of COVID-19 and Crises Management
  • The Consular Response: Challenges and Successes (from Travel Restrictions to Vaccine Passports to New Visa Streams)
  • Consular Processing Trends and Technology Innovations: What Is Here to Stay (Post-Pandemic)?

CLE credit is not available for this seminar.
