Answers to COVID-19 related immigration questions with Immigration Lawyers.



This webinar is hosted by the San Diego French-American Chamber of Commerce.

Since the outbreak of the coronavirus, people living under a nonimmigrant visa in the United Stated are concerned about the impact the coronavirus could have on their visa and their ability to remain in the United States. Here are some of the recurring questions we are receiving from our clients.

The following questions will be the primary topics of our presentation:

  • Can I stay in the United States with my nonimmigrant visa if my employer stops paying my salary but I’m still legally an employee of the company?
  • Does it make a difference if I have a visa H-1B, E-2 of a J-1.
  • Can I apply for unemployment benefits if I lost my job?
  • I am an entrepreneur in the U.S under a non-immigrant visa, what financial assistance can I apply for with the Federal Government, my State or my City to help my struggling business?
  • Can I still legally work if my employer wants me to work from home or from a location different from the one indicated on my visa application?
  • What happens to my application if I’m currently in the process of applying for an H-1B visa or a green card and the sponsoring company has shut down temporarily?
  • Can I stay in the United States with my F-1 visa if my school shuts downs and offers online courses?
  • Can I extend my status in the U.S if my non-immigrant visa is about to expire?
  • Can someone on ESTA get an extension due to canceled flights or symptoms of COVID-19?

You will be able to ask questions to Immigration lawyer speakers at the end of the discussion:
