One of the major news stories relating to immigration is surely Donald Trump’s surprise victory in the US. Will Congress really let him bring in much tougher immigration controls? Companies and investors can still gain entry to the US on an L-1 intra-company transfer, E-2 Treaty Investor visa, and E-1 Treaty Trader visa at a relatively low cost. Sending graduate level staff to the US on a temporary basis on a B-1 in lieu of H-1B visa is still possible. There is no quota for any of these visa categories. It is to be hoped that Trump will not be able to bring in major changes to these visa categories.
Below is a selection of some other recent news stories.
