AILA Agora – Regional Bans and National Interest Exceptions: Liaison, Litigation, and Best Practices for Dealing with Consulates and CBP

Barst Partner Alexis S. Axelrad will co-present a virtual seminar at 2 p.m. ET on the regional bans on entry and the ever-shifting complexities involved with qualifying for and obtaining a National Interest Exception (NIE). The expert panel will discuss the current state-of-play regarding NIEs with the U.S. Department of State (DOS) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). Featured topics will include: What Can We Expect from Litigation against the Regional Bans and the No-Visa/NIE Policy; What Can We Expect from AILA’s Liaison Efforts with DOS; What Is the Best Way to Secure an NIE with DOS and CBP; How Uniformly Are NIE Criteria Applied Within and Between the Two Agencies; Circumventing the Bans by Traveling to a Third Country for 14 Days; and Are Some Consulates More Open Than Others?
