Types of Investor and Entrepreneur Visas
The U.S. offers various visa options tailored to immigrant investors and entrepreneurs aiming to contribute to the nation's economy. Our firm specializes in assisting clients with the following visas:
- EB-5 Investor Visa: The EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program allows foreign investors to obtain a green card by investing in a new commercial enterprise that creates jobs for U.S. workers. To qualify for this program, you must invest at least $1.8 million in a new commercial enterprise or $900,000 if the investment is made in a targeted employment area. You must also create or preserve at least 10 full-time jobs for qualifying U.S. workers within two years of your admission to the United States as a Conditional Permanent Resident.
- E-2 Treaty Investor Visa: The E-2 Treaty Investor Visa allows foreign investors to live and work in the United States based on a substantial investment in a U.S. business. To qualify for this visa, you must be a citizen of a country that has a treaty of commerce and navigation with the United States. You must also make a substantial investment in a new or existing U.S. business and be seeking to enter the United States to develop and direct the business.
- L-1 Visa: The L-1 Intracompany Transferee Visa allows foreign executives, managers, and employees with specialized knowledge to transfer to a U.S. company that is affiliated with their current employer. To qualify for this visa, you must have worked for your current employer for at least one continuous year within the three years immediately preceding your application. You must also be seeking to enter the United States to provide service in an executive, managerial, or specialized knowledge capacity.
- H-1B Visa (Entrepreneurial Use): While primarily for skilled workers, some entrepreneurs may qualify for this visa if they are employed in a specialty occupation and meet specific criteria.
