Event Details

H and L visas are the primary visa types issued by the US government for those looking to work in the United States on a temporary basis. While popular with U.S. and foreign businesses, the H and L visa process can also be complicated. Since the start of the COVID pandemic, this confusion has only grown with new U.S. Government visa policies. To provide some clarity to members, AmCham Shanghai is organizing a briefing on H and L visas by U.S. Consulate Officers at 3:00 to 4:00 pm on August 12 at AmCham Shanghai.

This event is off the record and seating will be limited.


2:45 PM - 3 PM
