How frequently are you asked by clients: “What immigration options are available if I want to start a business in the United States?” Or more simply put, “Can I do it on my own?” Some foreign national clients have a promising idea for a new business, or they have developed strong contacts and contracts within the United States for a company that already exists in a different country. Our panelists will help you understand two valuable immigration options available to your most entrepreneurial clients.
- New office L: filing process (and limited validity)
- Common challenges: initial and extension
- L-1 new office visa petition requirements
- E-2 Investor visa: documentation, pros and cons
- Change of status vs. consular processing
- Family members
