Business & Investor Visas
Information on Business Visas
Some reasons for obtaining a business visa (B-1) include planned travel to consult with business associates or to settle an estate; travel for an educational, professional, scientific, or business convention or conference; and to negotiate a contract. If a U.S. citizen employer is visiting or is assigned to the United States temporarily but holds a permanent residence or station in a foreign country, or if a foreign citizen employer is in the United States in B, E, F, H, I, J, L, M, O, P, or Q non-immigrant visa status, a B-1 visa is suitable for a personal or domestic employee when all of the eligibility requirements are met. Before applying for a business visa, it is important to understand and comply with the requirements of non-immigrant rights, protections, and resources. To learn more about these visa requirements, reach out to a Tampa immigration lawyer for more details. We also have office locations in Orlando, Albuquerque, El Paso, and more.
Information on Investor Visas
For nations that have commerce, navigation treaties, and bilateral investment, the E-2 visa (a non-immigrant visa) is available. This visa is specifically for an individual who has invested a significant amount of money into a United States company and would like to pursue the guidance of its business operations. To confirm which countries apply, you may consult a USCIS web information center. In very special circumstances, an E-2 visa may lead to permanent residency in the United States.
There are many requirements that an individual must meet in order to be eligible for an investor visa. The investor is required to have made an investment of $25,000 or more; the investor intends to conduct operations considered to be supervisory, executive, or having to do with a specialized skill set; the business investment was at least 50 percent owned by the treaty country's citizens; and more.
