Olivia Minnis, associate in the firm's immigration section, weighs in on the new requirement that foreign national workers who are applying for U.S. visas are now required to disclose their social media information in SHRM's article "Social Media Information Now Required from All Visa Applicants."

"Given the amount of information shared on social media sites and the potential for misinterpretation, visa applicants should exercise good judgment and be mindful of the fact that the Department of State may access and review social media profiles and misunderstand posted content," said Olivia Minnis, an attorney in the Miami office of Buchanan Ingersoll and Rooney. "In light of these recent changes, visa applicants should consider the possibility that their activities on social media could be easily misconstrued and held against them during the processing of their visa applications."
