Many people are a little (or very) concerned about what Donald Trump is going to do as President of the United States.  Many foreign nationals are concerned about what visas will remain available to them.

With Trump’s election, inauguration,  and campaign rhetoric and executive actions regarding immigration in mind, this event will cover the range of visas available to foreign national entrepreneurs, professionals and students who wish to live and work in the U.S.


The speaker will discuss:

1) Trump’s 10 point immigration plan

2) Obama’s international entrepreneur program that is scheduled to take effect on July 16, 2017

3) The most common temporary visas, such as the B-1, E, H-1B, J-1, L-1, and O-1, that continue to be available;

4) Common obstacles to obtaining a visa, and

5) The importance of maintaining lawful immigration status

and more!


Please come with your questions, concerns, and scenarios.
