Webinar: Export Controls and Immigration: Avoiding Penalties
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) released a revised Form I-129, Petition for Nonimmigrant Worker, which contains a new question about compliance with U.S. export controls under Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). U.S. companies that fail to comply with these U.S. export controls when employing certain nonimmigrant workers may face monetary penalties and other significant sanctions from the U.S. government. The following questions will be answered:
- What is the new question on Form I-129?
- What are U.S. export controls governed by ITAR & EAR?
- What constitutes controlled technology or technical data subject to U.S. export controls?
- What is an export license, why does an employer need one, and what is the proper timing for obtaining one?
- Why can't a petitioner leave this to an immigration attorney?
