I. INTRODUCTION
The March 27-29 workshop on migration management, co-organized by
Georgetown University's Institute for the Study of International Migration
and the Centre d'Etude des Politiques d'Immigration, d'Integration et de
Citoyennet6 at France's National Political Science Foundation and sponsored
by the German Marshall Fund of the United States, formed part of a series of
conferences to promote trans-Atlantic dialogue on migration issues. The
conference involved representatives from the public and private sectors in
North America, Europe and Australia. The workshop consisted of four
separate discussion sessions. Each discussion sought to raise a set of policy
issues that require further attention and will comprise an agenda for further
work on visa policy, inspection, and exit controls. To launch each session,
two or three conference participants introduced the key issues to be discussed.
The remaining time was devoted to general discussion of these issues. The
workshop's final component consisted of a visit to the Forensic Document
Laboratory of the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS).
II. VISA POLICY: CONTROLLING UNAUTHORIZED ENTRY
A. National and Regional Visa Policies in the United States and Europe
In the most general sense, visas are government-issued travel documents
that grant foreigners the right to travel to and enter a host country. Visas
might also entitle their holders to a range of additional, attendant benefits,
including the right to remain in a country for a specified period of time and
