Investor Visas for people from qualifying countries through the "E-1" or "E-2" Visa Process.
For a List of E-1 & E-2 Visa Qualifying Countries See: http://france.usembassy.gov/e-countries.html. Only citizens of these countries qualify. The "E" visa category is for International Traders or Investors who have the nationality of a country that has a treaty of trade and commerce with the United States. The E-1 Treaty Trader visa requires substantial trade between the treaty country and the United States. The E-2 Treaty Investor visa requires a substantial investment in a business enterprise in the United States that is not a marginal business designed solely for the support of the alien and his family. If your country is on the "E" Visa List, but you have $500,000 to invest, an Investor Visa application may get you US Permanent Residence through the Regional Center Investor Program. The Law Offices of David D. Murray can represent you in an application for any visa type. Caution: Do not attempt to apply for any US visa without the assistance of qualified legal counsel.
"H-1B" Specialty Occupation and "L-1" Intracompany Transferee Visas are available for qualifying individuals.
"H-1B" Visas for persons with University Degrees: "H-1B" Visa applicants must work in a "Specialty Occupation" that normally requires a university degree or its equivalent at entry level. "Specialty Occupations" include such occupations as accountants, computer jobs, engineers, financial analysts, scientists, etc. "L-1" Intracompany Transferee Visas: People employed outside the US for at least one year out of the previous three years by a company can apply for an "L-1" Intracompany Transferee Visa.
