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 our members in the YRD (Hangzhou, Nanjing and Suzhou), AmCham Shanghai is organizing a webinar on H and L visas by U.S. Consulate Officers at 3:00 to 4:00 pm on Sep 23.

This webinar is off the record and open only to members.
