Munsch Hardt’s Immigration Team wishes you a wonderful Holiday Season and a Happy New Year! A few reminders and safety tips for your upcoming holiday travel:

  1. Be Prepared: Check your passport and visa validity before a trip. Hint: if you are traveling abroad, make sure that you have proper documentation to enter the country of your destination and return to the U.S., and have any necessary transit visas for your flight “stop overs”.
  2. Plan Ahead: In addition to valid original travel documents for yourself and each family member, be sure to have copies of all of these documents in a safe place, apart from the originals. If your documents are lost or stolen, having these copies would help save time when obtaining duplicates.
  3. Check Consular Schedules: If your travel plans include consular visa appointments, check consular schedules in advance of your travel and print out and take with you all appointment confirmation documentation, including attorney-certified visa petition copies, and anything else the particular consulate requires.

We hope that you take care, stay safe, and have a great time with friends and family!
