Hader Quoted in HR Magazine

February 2017

Charlotte Immigration Member Steve Hader was quoted in an HR Magazine article titled, “Suspension of Visa Interview Waivers Could Cause Business Disruptions” on February 3. The article discusses how President Trump’s suspension of the Visa Interview Waiver Program has been a significant inconvenience for a lot of individuals and their employers and caused delays for all visa applicants. Hader suggested hiring more experienced officers as a solution to the delays.

With consular matters, a large staff of visa officers is great, but the real key is to have knowledgeable, experienced officers that can look at a visa application and understand the unique circumstances of each individual applicant—and that takes time," said Hader. "Adjudication of U.S. visas—both immigrant and nonimmigrant—is not always straightforward. There are dozens of different categories of visas, each with their own set of rules and nuances. An officer needs to be very familiar with those rules for each different type of visa in order to be able to efficiently and effectively evaluate an applicant's request."
