SANTA MONICA, Calif., Dec. 5, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Former U.S. Department of State (DOS) Chief of Immigrant Visa Control has joined WR Immigration as Director of Visa Consulting. Charlie Oppenheim will lead WR's Government Relations Group and share his deep knowledge explaining the numerical control process.

WR is also proud to announce a "Chatting with Charlie" Webinar Series, the first to be held on Dec. 15 at 11am PT.

For over two decades, Charlie was the person responsible for the monthly and annual use of visa number allocations. For many, his monthly live Q&A sessions on the Department of State YouTube channel brought insight to those in the arduous visa process. The White House and Congressional Leadership have turned to Charlie for guidance on how the numerical control process works and could be updated to meet intended goals. Charlie will use this expertise to help demystify the immigrant visa backlogs while making predictions on potential visa movement.

Before joining WR, Charlie was DOS Chief of the Immigrant Visa Control and Reporting Division. Over nine million numerically controlled immigrant visa numbers were issued during this period. He regularly provided analysis and assessment of the impact of proposed legislation on visa availability and workload impact for overseas posts.
