Solutions for Ukrainian U.S. Visa Applicants
Davies & Associates assists multiple Ukrainian business owners, businesses, investors, academics and families to open and grow businesses, invest and obtain U.S. visas.A Typical Scenario
In our experience many Ukrainian Nationals wish to come to the United States to open a business on an immediate basis. Simultaneously many clients wish to pursue a “green card” over the longer term and often use the EB5 program or EB1(c) program for that purpose.E2 Visas for Ukrainian Professionals
On November 16, 1996 the United States signed a treaty with the Ukraine that enabled Ukrainian Nationals to apply for E2 investor visas.
An E2 visa allows a Ukrainian National to open a business in the United States with a relatively modest investment. While exactly how much investment is required depends on the nature of the business involved experience has shown that investments of less than USD 100,000.00 to USD 150,000.00 tend to attract greater scrutiny.
Unlike Russian Nationals who are not eligible for E2 visas, Ukrainian Nationals benefit from being able to obtain an E2 investor visa within just a couple of months. Many clients have used an E2 visa to establish a business in the United States and go on to obtain a “green card” using the EB5 program.L1 Visas for Ukrainian Business Owners
Another common strategy for Ukrainian business owner applicants is to open a US business and obtain an L1 visa. The decision on whether to use the E2 or L1 program depends on the facts of the case and the ultimate goals and objectives of the individual client involved.U.S. Permanent Residency (“Green Card”) and the EB5 and EB1 Programs
The EB5 investors program, EB1(c) multinational executive and manager and EB1A programs are all commonly used by Ukrainian Nationals to obtain Permanent Residency in the United States.
