Entrepreneur Green Cards
Buda Law Group has recently had a lot of success with approvals for the EB-2/NIW Entrepreneur Green Card category. This new and unique green card opportunity is extremely valued by its applicants due to the opportunities it offers. Currently, immigrant entrepreneurs are highly limited by their residency restrictions, making it difficult to land angel investors and the like when burdened with the red tape accompanied with traveling overseas. Also, investors are more likely to have faith in a business knowing that its CEO The EB-2 visa allows for the entrepreneur to not be burdened with maintaining a curriculum of education courses required by the F1 visa or the work sponsorship offered by the H1B visa. This unique visa category allows visionaries and entrepreneurs the opportunity to work for themselves, with no boundaries on their dreams, goals, and aspirations.
The EB2/NIW entrepreneur green card visa category shares all of the same common requirements of the regular EB2/NIW visa which is mainly targeted at PhD students. The main requirements are the following: (1) Applicant must seek employment in an area that has intrinsic merit. (2) Applicant must demonstrate that the proposed benefit provided will be national in scope. (3) Applicant must demonstrate that the entrepreneur will serve the national interest to a substantially greater degree than would an available US worker having the same minimum qualifications. The main objective of the application is for the entrepreneur to demonstrate that their new business venture will create jobs for U.S. workers or otherwise enhance the welfare of the United States. For example, the entrepreneur may not be taking a job opportunity from a U.S. worker but instead may be creating new job opportunities for U.S. workers.
The USCIS has finally started to recognize that foreign entrepreneurs are vitally important to the success of the US economy and are providing additional avenues, like the one presented here, to grant permanent residence for them.
