Our law firm has extensive experience with many visas that may be useful for your situation:
If you are a foreign business owner, manager, or employee who is in the United States to oversee investments or to trade, you may apply for an E-1 or E-2 visa. An E-1, or treaty trader visa, and an E-2, or treaty investor visa, must both be sponsored by a registered E-treaty trader company.
If you are coming to the United States for business but don’t plan on applying for a visa, the B-1 visa may be the right option for you. This hybrid visa is for an employee who is traveling to the United States to perform duties for a foreign employer such that it is not found to be “working in the U.S.”. For an employer, an employee with a B-1 visa is considered a salaried employee who is visiting abroad. Employees who use this visa cannot be paid by companies in the United States.
The B-2 visa is a good choice for if you want to visit the United States as a tourist or for medical or family reasons. Potential visitors may be able to apply for this visa abroad. Once granted, visitors may stay in the United States for no more than six months, though extensions may be granted in certain circumstances.
If you are at the top of your field in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics, you may qualify for an extraordinary ability permanent residence self-sponsorship, a National Interest Waiver, or another category that can bypass lengthy Department of Labor processes. The people who qualify for this category are in high demand, but the government’s standards are incredibly high. We work very closely with anyone considering this visa to offer legal advice that will help secure this fast-track option.
