E-2 Status for Indian Born Purchaser of Retail Business with Australian Passport
Turnkey Business Acquisitions and Investor Visas: E-2 Status for former Indian National
Countries Involved: India and Australia
Result: Change of Status to E-2 visa
Indian by birth and with a Indian passport holder wife, our client was the owner of a well-known restaurant franchise in Australia. Wishing to establish a corporation in Southern California and use it to acquire and run a retail business, our client needed to move his family from Australia and India to California.
With the seller threatening to “pull out”, our client needed to move quickly and needed a law firm to manage all aspects of the transaction. Failure to complete the transaction would have meant our client having to leave the United States at a time when he had critical personal and business reasons to be in the country.
Our client also had substantial assets in India that had significant “tracing” issues and a pregnant Indian National wife ready to give birth.
Davies & Associates rapidly brought together a team of immigration and corporate lawyers. Seamlessly working together the team were able to set-up a new corporation and apply for an “emergency” change of status to E-2 status using premium processing.
Our client rapidly obtained E-2 visa status for both himself and his wife. As a result our client was able to close his acquisition and open his US retail business.
