The U.S. State Department has authorized the voluntary departure of U.S. government employees and ordered the departure of family members from the U.S. Embassy in Kiev, Ukraine. The move came amid rising tensions between Ukraine and Russia.
BAL Analysis: While the embassy said it would be able to meet an uptick in demand, consular services had already been limited because of COVID-19. Delays should be expected for services that are available. The situation in Ukraine may change with little or no notice and companies with employees in the country are encouraged to follow State Department information and warnings closely.
This alert has been provided by the BAL U.S. Practice group. For additional information, please contact email@example.com.
