New Data in Immiguru: USA – B-1 Visitor Visa and Visa Waiver Program

We’re very pleased to announce that the B-1 Visitor Visa and Visa Waiver Program processes for the United States of America have been added to Immiguru.

Immiguru contains information about corporate work-related immigration processes only but since certain, limited work-related activities are permitted on visitor status, we’ve decided to include this route. (The applicant must remain on foreign payroll and contract and the activities in the U.S. must benefit the foreign employer and not a U.S. entity.)

Many thanks to our partners in the U.S., Jim Alexander at Maggio + Kattar and Michelle White at Littler Global for their help with this!
