Investment and Business Visas for Global Professionals
At Integrity Law Group, we understand that immigration laws can be complicated and difficult to navigate, nevertheless, they are part of a necessary journey if you wish to expand your business interests and opportunities in the United States. ILG has the experience and a long successful history in helping clients make that journey.
For the last fifteen years, our attorneys have helped hundreds of professionals, investors, and executives immigrate to the United States. Our extensive experience with the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program visa is the cornerstone of our immigration practice and is the only visa program designed to allow foreign investors permanent residency (a “green card”) in the United States.
Our team of attorneys, support staff, and advisors is led by Principal Attorney and Senior Partner Max Soi and will work on your behalf to drive and guide your application through the immigration process.
Integrity Law Group offers complimentary interpreters in Cantonese, Mandarin, Vietnamese, French, and Hindi. To learn how our attorneys can help determine which immigration option is right for you, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 206.838.8118.
Green Card or Long-Term Temporary Residency: Non-resident aliens wishing to live and work full or part-time in the United States. In some cases, more than one option is applicable. Immigrant visas typically require either a close family connection with a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, or an employment-based connection. Immigration visas can be very difficult to obtain, and non-immigrant visas may not always be available.
E Visas (Referenced above) are limited to nationals of countries which have treaties with the U.S. They require substantial trade between the U.S. and the treaty country or an investment of significant cash and management time in a qualifying job-creating business. EB-5 Visas avoid most of the restrictions involved in Long-Term Residency Visas, can lead to Green Card status, and currently have no waiting periods.
L Visas are limited to executives, managers, or personnel with specialized knowledge who have been employed continuously abroad by a parent, branch, affiliate, or subsidiary of a U.S. company.
H-1B Visas for professionals are subject to quota restrictions and time delays.
F-1 Student Visas from certain countries are becoming harder to qualify for and generally do not permit gainful employment in the U.S. Furthermore, non-immigrant visas are generally limited in duration, and are not easily convertible to immigrant visas (except in the case of L-1A managers or executives.).
