There are two distinct options for working in the United States as a foreign national. You can obtain a work permit allowing you to live and work temporarily in the United States. There are over 60 different kinds of non-immigrant visas from which to choose.
While a temporary or non-immigrant visa gives you the opportunity to work for a limited period of time in the U.S., employment based immigration is an avenue to permanent legal residency. Only 140,000 employment-based immigrant visas are allotted annually in the U.S. For this reason, obtaining an immigration work visa can be challenging, and it is wise to work with one of our experienced and knowledgeable Raleigh immigration lawyers
The EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program is a visa offered by the United States Immigration and Citizenship Services (USCIS) to those foreign nationals who wish to invest capital in new startup ventures in the United States - particularly ventures in rural areas with high unemployment rates. This program was initiated in 1990 as a way to boost the United States economy.
Foreign citizens who invest a certain amount of money in new commercial enterprises in the U.S. - thus promoting job creation and economic growth - may be eligible for the investor visa. Contact Attorney Gardner or Attorney Douglass to learn more about this program and whether or not you may qualify.
