E visa adjudications have been severely affected by COVID-19 and the regular and ongoing closures of U.S. consulates. With E visa units barely operating for more than a year, many clients were unable to process applications with the Department of State (DOS), faced major delays, or looked to change of status or extension of status filings with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). The experts on this intermediate panel will discuss current trends with E visa adjudications at the consulates and the aftermath of filings with USCIS as treaty traders, investors, and employees resume more normal travel.
