E2 visa for business owners – entrepreneur & investor visas
Do you come from a country which has a treaty with the United States? Get an E-2 attorney in order to help you get the E-2 visa.
This is a type of visa which an E-2 attorney will explain to you is for persons who want to do their own business inside the U.S.
It is for persons, explains Brian D. Lerner, E-2 attorney, who are entrepreneurs.
Brian D. Lerner, E-2 attorney, states that an E-2 visa is one of the nicest working visas as it allows you to run your own business and be an entrepreneur.
While it periodically needs to be renewed, you can stay here in the U.S. as long as you like on the E-2.
Normally, explains the E-2 attorney, this type of E-2 Visa would require an investment around $100,000 U.S. to successfully process.
The Law Offices of Brian D. Lerner states, that the more capital investment that is required for the business, the higher the investment.
An example the E-2 attorney gives is that if you purchase a restaurant, you will clearly have to invest more than if you were to purchase a little consulting office.
Additionally, Brian D. Lerner, E-2 attorney, states that your spouse and unmarried children under 21 years old can come as beneficiaries to your approved E-2.
Your children will be able to go to school in the U.S. without having to get a separate student visa (as long as they are not in college.)
The spouse, explains the E-2 attorney will be permitted to apply for a work permit to work anywhere in the United States.
A great deal of the success of the E-2 Petition is how it is prepared discusses Brian Lerner, E-2 attorney.
The higher the investment, the easier it is to get approved.
The type of company that would either be purchased or the type of company that would start from scratch is wide open depending on what you would like to do.
Brian D. Lerner, E-2 attorney states that this petition is usually 2-4 inches thick. It consists of the petition itself, the complex business plan with numerous charts and figures, and the incorporation papers.
Once submitted directly to the Consulate, it takes a few months for approval.
Brian D. Lerner, E-2 attorney explains that while many people would want or have already done their own business plan, that it does not comply with the immigration regulations and does not meet the necessary requirements.
Thus, an E-2 attorney should prepare the complex business plan for you.
The E-2 is a complicated U.S. Visa Petition and requires years of experience by an E-2 attorney to do it properly.
There are many issues that must be dealt with and argued in the petition itself such as marginality, substantiality, ownership, managerial vs. executive, tracing of funds, etc.
In reality, explains Brian Lerner, E-2 attorney, only an E-2 attorney with years of experience can properly prepare and do the E-2.
Otherwise, it will most likely be denied.
The E-2 attorney will prepare legal brief and make the E-2 Presentation so it is persuasive and convincing.
Simply having the money to invest is only the start explains the E-2 attorney.
Brian D. Lerner, E-2 attorney, has been doing these petitions for years and the procedures for the briefs, incorporation, and complex business plan are in place and will be done correctly, efficiently and with the highest chance of success.
Brian Lerner, E-2 attorney states that it can also be submitted to U.S. Immigration for a change of status.
However, keep in mind that with a change of status, you cannot keep that status when you leave the U.S.
It is normally preferable to send the package directly to the U.S. Consulate or U.S. Embassy for adjudication.
The E-2 attorney will explain to you that most E-2 clients have needs to go back to their home country, and because of that, the visa is preferred over the change of status.
In any event, be sure to ask the E-2 attorney what questions and concerns that you have regarding the E-2 Petition.
You do not want to engage on this venture and not have your questions answered.
In reality, explains Brian D. Lerner, E-2 attorney, some people think they can simply put in $20,000 to $30,000 in the business and the rest of the money in a bank account.
However, this is not the case explains the E-2 attorney.
In fact, there should be at least $60,000 to $70,000 actual investment and then the balance can go into the savings account.
Brian D. Lerner, E-2 attorney explains that the E-2 is the best type of visa for the entrepreneur to come into the U.S.
Another issue, explains Brian Lerner, E-2 attorney is that many people think they can only get the E-2 for a single type of business.
In fact, the E-2 attorney states people come into the office not knowing which of their dreams to follow.
However, the reality is that they can do both.
There is nothing in the regulations, explains Brian D. Lerner, E-2 attorney that state that you must only do one type of business.
You can open up a Restaurant and contract you consulting services out or do movie making.
There is no limit to the types of businesses that an E-2 will allow and the number of different branches of your office that can be done in a typical E-2 Petition.
This is all the more reason to make sure that you have a very qualified E-2 attorney who will prepare what is needed to get you to meet your dreams and your aspirations to make it big in the U.S.
Just make sure, explains Brian D. Lerner, E-2 attorney that you do not go for the least expensive E-2 attorney.
Rather, get an E-2 attorney who is experienced and really knows what they are doing.
