Visa Policy

To remain competitive in the global market, the United States must reform its visa policy to be more welcoming to students, visitors and business travelers. The National Foreign Trade Council (NFTC) develops policies to reform U.S. visa procedures for inbound business travelers and employees of U.S. multinational companies in an effort to eliminate adverse impacts on companies and their ability to compete internationally. The NFTC also monitors and advocates new visa and immigration proposals introduced in Congress, and supports comprehensive immigration reform that includes enhanced temporary entry provisions.
