About the event

In recent weeks, we've heard from many newcomers worried about their immigration status. The outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has led governments across the world to implement a range of temporary immigration-related measures in order to contain the spread. In light of these developments, many individuals who have recently moved or are hoping to move to the U.S. may find themselves grappling with uncertainty.

On March 30th 10am PST/ 1pm EST, hear from a panel of experts including our legal partner, Hendrik Pretorius, Immigration Counsel of Immipartner, and Patrick Taurel, Senior Attorney, Clark Hill on how the immigration landscape is changing in the face of travel bans and restrictions.

  • Facing restrictions on domestic and international travel without violating visa laws
