Gehi & Associates: Your Trusted Immigration Attorney Bethpage! Investor Visa - Immigration Attorney in Texas - Immigration Attorney in Woodside

The E-2 Investor Visa is for foreign entrepreneurs who have invested in a business they started or purchased. This can be an excellent alternative for anyone who wishes to establish a business in any industry, from food trucks to yoga consulting firms to professional service practices. This is also a great option for individuals who want to purchase a franchise in the United States. You must invest personal funds that cover a significant portion of the start-up or purchase price of the business, and you have to show you can oversee and develop the business so that it can hire U.S.employees. 

The length of time for which a visa can be approved depends on your nationality. Although the investor visa is a temporary visa, it can be renewed indefinitely so long as the company continues to do business and the foreign national retains majority ownership and control. The investor visa is a great way for a national of a country with which the United States maintains a treaty of commerce and navigation to move to the country in order to develop and oversee the operations of a business in which the national has invested, work in an executive or supervisory capacity in a company owned by a treaty national, or work as an essential worker in an organization owned by a treaty national. Gehi & Associates understands the importance of successfully obtaining an E-2 visa and will help you navigate the E-2 visa process.

Although the E-2 investor visa application process is straightforward, all E-2 visas need a well-planned strategy, close attention to detail, and effective communication. With these components in place, the process is frequently simpler and less stressful than many of our clients anticipate.
