Mayer Brown’s Global Mobility & Migration practice provided an overview of the immigration and cross-border travel challenges facing the Energy industry under the Biden administration and its policies on business immigration and workforce mobility. We also provided an update on the COVID-19 travel restrictions and an overview of the US Department of State’s current policy for granting national interest exceptions for executive and business travel to the United States.

This discussion took place with Mayer Brown lawyers Elizabeth (“Liz”) Espín Stern, who leads the firm’s Global Mobility & Migration practice, Carl Risch, former Assistant Secretary of State for Consular Affairs, a position in which he managed the worldwide visa and passport function for the United States government, domestically and at its embassies and consulates abroad, and with Morgan Bailey, former Deputy Chief of Staff at US Citizenship & Immigration Services.
