The holiday season is here and so is holiday travel. Be sure to stay abreast of your employees' foreign travel plans and, especially, with regard to any individuals that require a new visa in order to re-enter the U.S. after a trip abroad. U.S. consulates schedule holiday closings and are often short-staffed this time of the year, so remember to schedule visa appointments in advance and to double check local consular procedures and verify any scheduling changes.
