U.S. Travel Bans: Outlook for 2021

18 February 14:00 PM ET


Join Worldwide ERC® at 14:00 AM (ET) on 18 February 2021 for this webinar sponsored by Berry Appleman and Leiden LLP

With multiple U.S. travel bans in place in the past year, companies have delayed employee travel and work assignments and taken a wait-and-see approach for much of 2020. How will the new administration, the current COVID-19 situation, and the U.S. economic recovery impact travel in 2021? Join BAL for a look at where the travel bans stand and what companies should expect for inbound U.S. travel in the months ahead.

At this event, our panel of experts will discuss:

  • Current status of travel bans, from the national security bans to the COVID-19 regional countries bans to the economic-related immigrant and work-visa bans.
  • How President Biden will approach the various bans and how long should companies anticipate they will remain in place.
  • How the Biden administration changes and the continuing COVID-19 crisis will affect U.S. consular processing in the coming year
  • Additional considerations when planning U.S. assignments in 2021.
