U.S. Immigration Options for Entrepreneurs
The best-known US visas are based on salaried jobs, but an increasing number of students are considering setting up their own company or becoming involved in a start-up venture. These situations require investigating a wider range of temporary work visas, and some creativity. In particular, showing how the new venture can help the US economy is very helpful. Presenters will review the key visa categories that many students use, and offer advice about how to coordinate business and immigration planning. Presenters will also take specific questions.
