Business Immigration Law: Forms and Filings is a comprehensive guide to choosing the correct nonimmigrant work authorization category and applying for it efficiently and without error. It provides examples and explanations not only of straightforward situations, but also of the variations that might affect student and business visitors, treaty traders and investors, NAFTA professionals, specialty occupation workers, temporary nonagricultural workers, and others.
Coverage includes discussion of every stage of the application process: obstacles and solutions to consider before filing; completed sample forms; support letters; supporting document checklists and filing instructions; guidance on applications for initial status, extension, amendment and change of status; the needs of dependent family members; and detailed guidance on post-9/11 visa requirements.
Like its companion volume, Business Immigration Law: Strategies for Employing Foreign Nationals, Business Immigration Law: Forms and Filings discusses the laws and regulations involving each category of nonimmigrant work authorization, with a focus on guiding the reader through the application process with a minimum of difficulty and delay. Whether you are an attorney, an employer, or a foreign national, this book's forms and proactive strategies will prove invaluable.
