Japanese businesses send employees to the U. S., either for short-term business trips—to negotiate business deals, visit business associates, and attend conference—or as executive and specialists to work for several years in their U.S. operations. Both purposes raise difficult visa issues.

As strategies for managing short-term business trips, this presentation will discuss the visa-waiver program and the B visa. For the longer-term stay, it will discuss nonimmigrant E-1, E-2, L, and J-1 business visas. It will explain eligibility and the processing of applications and cover the common pit-falls and problems that can arise. It will also suggest how to anticipate and resolve problems before employees travel to the U.S.

About CLE Credit

Please bring your state attorney ID number so that you can complete the necessary paperwork. Various states, including California and New York, recognize Pennsylvania CLE credits. However, attorneys are responsible for checking with the CLE board in their jurisdiction before attending the CLE seminar whether Pennsylvania CLE credits will count towards their CLE requirements and what their jurisdiction requires them to do to claim out-of-state CLE credits. Please inform us before the seminar if your CLE board requires anything other than a copy of the Pennsylvania CLE credit form and a certificate of attendance.

Persons who are interested in the topic but who do not require CLE credits are most welcome to attend.
