Visa & Permanent Residence Options for Entrepreneurs

Klasko Immigration Law Partners LLP attorneys are particularly skilled investment immigration lawyers, and are committed to the success of entrepreneurial clients who wish to live and pursue their unique work in the United States. 

We help our entrepreneurial clients obtain a variety of visas, including:

  • H-1B: A dual intent visa allowing employers to petition for educated professionals to work in “specialty occupations,” often in STEM fields. For entrepreneurs, some restructuring of their company may be necessary for eligibility.
  • E-2: An investor visa that permits individuals, and their families, to live and work in the U.S. based on the “substantial” investments into a U.S. business. This visa is only available to citizens of treaty countries, so for some, a third-country citizenship may be needed.
  • L-1: L-1 nonimmigrant visas allow immigrants to enter the U.S. and work for a company after working abroad for at least a year.
  • EB-5: Permits foreign national investors to earn a green card by investing in a U.S. business that creates at least 10 American jobs.
