  • NAFTA and USMCA… where are we? In the U.S., Mexico, and Canada, the new USMCA is replacing NAFTA. But where are we currently on the road to implementation, and how will it impact your foreign employees and business travellers in North America? Newland Chase’s Enrique Arellano, Managing Director for Mexico, has you covered with the latest.
  • Canada has a new DUI/DWI law starting 1 December… but what does it mean for your employees getting business visas and work permits? A lot.
