Immigration Update: December 7, 2022

In case you missed The View From The Top, here is the Immigration update for December 7, 2022 from Fragomen's Julia Onslow Cole.

In this show Julia provided a global visa round-up. Coming up to the festive season all of the Government departments and Consulates are experiencing many delays — it is much worse than normal due to the previous COVID delays.  This is particularly so in Europe and Latin America

There are extraordinary delays with interviews for both Immigrant and non-immigrants in the US.  It can take up to 6 months for tourist or business travelers.

Good things are happening specifically to domestic mobility in China. A lot of measures on mobility have been relaxed.  Lockdowns are more contained. 

On Tuesday the Indian High Commission announced they are bringing back E-Visas for UK nationals for India. That is really good news. Listen to Julia's complete immigration brief and her recommendations for dealing with these delays:
