Exploring Business Immigration Options
Employment-Based Immigration Options
There is a wealth of employment-based immigration options in the U.S., and Massachusetts, given its industry diversity, stands as an attractive destination.
- EB-1 Visa: tailored for individuals demonstrating extraordinary abilities, is designed for those with exceptional talent in business, arts, science, education, or athletics.
- EB-2 Visa: for professionals holding advanced degrees or individuals with exceptional abilities. Advanced degree professionals must hold a degree above a bachelor’s degree or a bachelor’s degree with at least five years of progressive post-degree experience in their field. For those with exceptional ability, evidence must be shown that they possess expertise significantly above that ordinarily encountered in their industry.
- EB-3 Visa: for skilled workers, professionals, or other workers. Skilled workers are those with at least two years of job experience or training, while professionals must hold a U.S. bachelor’s degree or a foreign equivalent degree. Other workers are individuals performing unskilled labor requiring less than two years of training or experience.
Investment-Based Immigration Options
Investment-based immigration provides opportunities for individuals willing to invest significant capital in the U.S. economy.
- The EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program offers visas to individuals who invest $1.8 million (or $900,000 in a Targeted Employment Area) in a new commercial enterprise that will create or preserve at least ten full-time jobs for qualifying U.S. workers within two years.
- The E-2 Treaty Investor Visa allows an individual from a treaty country – a country with which the U.S. maintains a treaty of commerce and navigation – to be admitted when investing a substantial amount of capital in a U.S. business. The investment must be active, meaning that the funds must be used to develop and direct the operations of an enterprise.
