Most Common Visas
Here we discuss only the most common types of visas used for business people interested in having or operating a business in the United States, and who have an eye towards emigration or for people wishing to permanently reside in the United States.You should seek counsel (an Immigration Attorney) to determine which visa is best suited to your needs and legal advice. If you need a recommendation, we can help you. Secondly, it is useful to state the obvious, that is the USCIS (United States Customs and Immigration Service) will do background checks (no drug dealers, criminals, etc.) and since the visas we will be discussing in detail all require an investment, the USCIS looks to see that the funds are not derived from a criminal enterprise (directly or indirectly). That being said, the funds can come from the visa applicant, their business directly, or can usually be gifted from one family member to another (Parent to Child for example). Without a valid visa or other authorization from the USCIS, no foreign national has the right to be physically present or work in the U.S. Non-immigrant (temporary) Visas are permissions authorizing entry to the U.S. for a specific purpose and for a defined time period.
