While there can never be guarantees in immigration cases, in our fifteen years of experience we have never had an EB-5, L-1, E-2 or E-1 visa application denied. We believe the reason for this is that rather than use “stock” solutions we truly work with individuals to sculpt a unique solution to their immigration needs.

Use of a B1 Visas in Business Immigration Strategy

A B1 visa can be a very flexible way for an investor or business owner to conduct due diligence on starting their business in the United States. While it is unlawful for the holder of a B1 visa to manage or operate their business while in B1 visa status they can conduct business meetings, investigate setting-up a business and meet with potential employees, vendors and clients.

Clients in B-1 status whose plans change and who wish to remain in the United States after entering the country on a B-1 visa can apply for change of status to E-2 (Treaty Investor Visa), E-1 (Treaty Trader Visa), L-1 or EB-5 Status. There are however complex issues associated with intent and visa misuse to navigate and we recommend that anyone contemplating this strategy to consult with an experienced immigration lawyer.

Permanent Residency (Green Cards) permanent residency Moving from an L-1 or E visa to a Green Card

It is a myth that E visa holders cannot transition to green cards. While a transition from an E visa to a green card is usually made through the EB-5 program we have accomplished this through other routes. E visas need to be set-up and managed in a very carefully and in a very precise way in order to position a client to later move to the EB-5 program. Too often we are approached by clients who did not receive appropriate advice on this topic and are consequently unable to transition to the EB-5 program.

Transitioning from an L-1 visa to a green card is considerably easier and can be accomplished through a work-based petition in addition to use of the EB-5 program.
