Obtain an E-5 visa to invest in a business

On Behalf of | Oct 19, 2021 | U.s. Immigration Law |

Many Florida business owners emigrated from other countries of origin with a dream to invest in the American economy by opening a company of their own. Someone wanting to invest $900,000 or more may apply for an E-5 visa to become a permanent resident of the United States. This particular aspect of the immigration program is designed to increase trade and stimulate economic growth, as well as create new jobs.  

Family members may be eligible for conditional residency 

Many business owners traveling to the United States through the E-5 visa program also make arrangements for their family members to join them in America. While family members may enter this country under conditional residency, it may be possible for them to apply for permanent residency later on. Getting settled in a new home and country can be an exciting yet stressful experience.  

Legal problems can arise 

Business owners and their families must work hard and study long hours to become fluent in English and acclimate themselves to a new lifestyle and culture. Things do not always go as one might hope when starting over in a new country. Not only might an immigrant feel homesick at first, but legal problems connected to a business can arise that impede one’s ability to achieve success.  

Always best to seek additional support 

Seeking outside support sooner rather than later is typically the best thing a business owner can do when legal obstacles arise during the immigration process. At Cuevas, Garcia & Torres, P.A., our legal team not only is well-versed in immigration law but experienced in commercial litigation and business representation, as well.
