Can a Canadian citizen start a business in USA. I am planning to start a Cost Consultancy/Engineering service business in USA.
I would be providing my services On-Site to the engineering companies helping them as cost consultants. May be as a On-Demand contractor?
Is it possible and under what visa?. I would like to talk to the right lawyer to take it further.
What visa do I qualify.
An E-2 visa would be needed.
The Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit recently stated: "The Immigration and Nationality Act is a bit of a beast. It is not known for being warm or cuddly; words like "intricate" and "Byzantine" come more readily to mind. Nor is it known for being easy to understand; we have often re-marked on its fiendish complexity."
You should retain an experienced immigration lawyer to review all the facts, advise you, and handle the case. You can find one through http://www.ailalawyer.com.
