Recent Developments in U.S. and China Cross-Border Matters - 19 November 2020
Topic: Recent Developments in U.S. and China Cross-Border Matters
Presented by: Mel Warshaw, Shudan Zhou, and Ziva Robertson
Following a July 14, 2020 presidential order, any preference given to Hong Kong passport holders over PRC (mainland) China passport holders has now been eliminated. As a result Hong Kong citizens will be subject to much longer backlogs for U.S. immigrant visas (green cards) in all categories including EB-5 investor immigrant visas. Mel Warshaw will discuss the alternative planning of obtaining a Grenada passport and then qualifying for the E-2 visa, as well as the transition into EB-5 green card status. In addition, Mel will discuss the problems faced by all long-term green card holders if they then decide to leave the U.S.
In addition, Shudan Zhou and Ziva Robertson will review certain recent statutory and case law developments in multiple jurisdictions (including Delaware, Hong Kong, the Cayman Islands, etc.) and provide a jurisdictional comparative analysis to help international (especially Chinese) families to make sense of the big divide between the onshore and offshore world.
