US Visa for Ukrainian Nationals

Our Experience

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

E2 Visa for Ukrainian

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.

E2 Investor Visa for Ukarainian to Obtain Green Card

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

E2 & L1 Visa Ukrainian  Business Owner

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.

Details on these programs as they pertain to Ukrainian applicants can be obtained from our office.

E1 Visas for Ukrainian Traders

Unfortunately Ukrainian nationals are not eligible for E1 visas at the current time unless married to a national of an E1 eligible country.

"After finding D&A through an internet search in 2020, my wife and I had several free consultations with David Cantor. Despite our initial attempt at filing for our E2 visa independently ending in failure, we decided to hire D&A for their expertise and support. Over the course of four long years, Verdie and Cristina were incredibly patient as we took our time to prepare for the E2 submission. Verdie became our E2 Attorney in 2021, and from the start, Verdie and Cristina's patience was evident. Despite our intermittent engagement over the years, they always treated us with the utmost attention. Working with Verdie and the D&A team was a pleasure; their professionalism and support were unwavering. Verdie's calm demeanor and succinct communication style made navigating the process much smoother, even during complex discussions. I wholeheartedly recommend Verdie and D&A - Davies & Associates, to anyone seeking an immigration law firm who can efficiently handle their case with precision and without unnecessary fanfare. Their ability to get things done speaks volumes about their dedication to their clients' success."

Getting my E2 Visa was a very in-depth process that took just over a year from when I committed to it, but 8 months from when I found a business I wanted to purchase. The only reason I'm giving 4 and not 5 stars is because the timeframe was a lot longer than expected from the initial information. Aside from the timing, Verdie and his team led me through the Visa process, providing all the guidance I needed to be successful, including advising me on the RIGHT type of Visa to suit my goals. Within the process I purchased a business and the greater Davies team included lawyer Rinat who helped me put the deal together. One of the biggest parts was my Business Plan which created from my info by Ana Ortiz, who did an incredible job. The process is certainly tedious and Verdie & Christina were always there to answer my questions, provide suggestions and advice and ensure I had all the documents I needed to support my application. I appreciated their patience with my questions and their advice and in the end, the application was so thorough the interview process was quick and easy. I highly recommend Davies & Associates and look forward to working with them again when it's time to renew my Visa.
