IMPACT – MEDIUM
The U.S. State Department has announced that it will reduce the number of locations where it conducts visa interviews in China for H and L visa applicants from five locations to three.
BAL Analysis: Employers sponsoring applicants in China for H and L visas should be aware of the change and factor in additional time and expense for applicants in the northeastern and western regions of China who will need to travel considerable distances to one of the remaining three locations. They also should anticipate closer scrutiny of these applications from examiners who are more expert in reviewing them.
