E-2 Rules to be Postponed? E-2s to have more Autonomy?

with 2 comments

Nothing has been confirmed yet but rumour (HT to Popular Gusts) has it that the new E-2 rules (nationwide criminal background check) will be delayed until 2012.  Looks like a lot of employers/recruiters were complaining that the check takes too long for instructors to arrive January onwards.  Not a problem with my company as we have a stack of candidates with completed FBI checks!  (Note to other recruiters:  recruit in advance).

Also, in other E-2-related news, it seems that the current restrictions placed on E-2 holders will be relaxed to allow them to work at multiple locations and other jobs (like privates-legally of course).

Has the government finally come to its senses?  Don’t hold your breath.  It seems that there are now more restrictions for F-visa holders and less for E-2s due to some incidents.  Well, I guess we’ll see what happens in the coming months.

I’ll keep you posted.
