Visa Options For Entrepreneurs
The United States offers foreign entrepreneurs a wide variety of visa options for establishing a business or investment venture in the U.S.
The professionals at Consilium Law, LLC have worked with numerous foreign nationals and investors as they move their businesses and investment endeavors to the United States. We have helped our clients create international commercial enterprises that create jobs and exhibit profitability by assisting our clients through the U.S. visa application process. We have assisted clients in obtaining many different types of U.S. visas, including:
An L-1 visa is a business visa, and more specifically a type of work visa, that allows for the intra-company transfer of certain employees of a foreign company to a properly affiliated company in the United States. Entrepreneur foreign nationals serving in a managerial or executive capacity at a foreign business entity can use the L1-A type of the L-1 visa to open a new branch, parent/subsidiary, or affiliate of the foreign entity in the United States.
An E-1 visa, also known as a Treaty Trader Visa, is a nonimmigrant visa option provided to those foreign investors and entrepreneurs living in a country with which the United States has an existing Treaty of Commerce, friendship, navigation or other similar mutual agreement who meet the requirements for foreign investment in a U.S. business or commercial entity. No minimum investment amount is required for an E-1 visa. The E-1 visa applicant is required to show substantial trade between the United States and the foreign country.
Similar to an E-1 visa, E-2 visas are also nonimmigrant visas and are only available to foreign investors and entrepreneurs living in a country with which the United States has an existing Treaty of Commerce, friendship, navigation or other similar mutual agreement who meet the requirements for foreign investment in a U.S. business or commercial entity. The applicant E-2 visa applicant must show that he or she has made a substantial investment in a U.S. entity, and there is a minimum investment amount requirement for an E-2 visa.
The EB-5 visa is the only investment based immigration visa option for foreign nationals living in a country that does not have a treaty agreement with the United States. EB-5 visas can be difficult to obtain because the specific requirements that must be satisfied in order to obtain EB-5 visa status are very narrow and must be satisfied exactly. There are different types of EB-5 visas, and each one has its own specific requirements. A qualified visa attorney can help you determine which type of EB-5 visa is most appropriate based on the applicant's investment plans and goals.
