Pandemic cuts into seasonal hotels’ limited time
Charlotte Immigration Member Amanda Franklin was quoted in the Hotel News Now article titled, “Pandemic cuts into seasonal hotels’ limited time” which was published on April 17.
The pandemic has closed embassies around the world, meaning potential H-2B visa employees can’t get in-person interviews as part of the process, she said. Even if there is a waiver and they could receive a stamp on their visa, looking at the prospects of getting a stamp on their passport to enter the U.S. is not going to happen for a lot of people she said.
“It's going to significantly affect industries that rely on their seasonal workers, their H-2B workers, who come in for the summer season,” she said.
