Business Visas Attorney Miami Gardens

If you are located abroad but are interested in obtaining a business visa to come and conduct business in the United States, several visas are available to you. For example, you may be interested in coming into this country to attend a business meeting or receive a professional consultation, or maybe you have been invited to participate in a professional conference or convention related to your industry, or perhaps you have to be here to negotiate some contracts related to your current business in your country of origin. If that is the case, the Florida Immigration Law Counsel is the place where you should start. We have the knowledge and expertise to get you the business visa you need, or we may also recommend another one that may be more suited for your needs.

Visa USA

B Visas for Business Visitors

If you are a citizen of a foreign country who wishes to come into the United States for professional reasons, you must first obtain a visa. This could be either a nonimmigrant visa for a temporary business visit or an immigrant visa for permanent residence if your business requires you to move here permanently.

As their name implies, Visitor visas are temporary, nonimmigrant visas for those who want to be in the United States temporarily because this is required for their business. In this case, you would have to apply for a visa category B-1; if you plan to visit for tourism purposes, you should obtain a visa category B-2. If you wish to do both, you may obtain a combination visa that would allow you to take care of both purposes and apply for a B-1/B-2 visa.

Other Visas for Business Visitors

There are other viable visa options if you are interested in conducting business in the United States. Among them:

E-1 Visas

This is a temporary treaty trader visa that can be renewed while the business is still in operation. It is convenient for anyone who is starting a business that will trade with their home country. However, the visa holder’s home country must have a valid trade treaty with the United States.

E-2 Visas

This is a treaty investor visa. It is temporary but can be renewed and allows its holder to start a business in the United States, providing they are citizens of a treaty country.

EB-5 Visa

This type of visa is part of the investor green card program. It calls for an individual to invest between $500,000 and $1 million in a business venture, and this business must hire at least 10 American residents within two years to qualify for the visa requirements. In addition, the company must be in operations between two and five years. This visa is very attractive because it offers a path to permanent residency since the investor can apply for it after a probationary period.

Visa Waiver Program

The Visa Waiver Program (VWP) allows most citizens of countries that participate in the program to travel to the United States for business for stays no longer than 90 days without obtaining a visa. To qualify for the VWP, you must have a valid Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) approval before travel and meet these requirements.

  • You must be a citizen of a country that is part of the program. Your business lawyer from the Florida Immigration Law Counsel will inform you if this is your case.
  • You must be authorized through the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) before boarding an air or sea vessel bound for the United States. ESTA is a web-based system operated by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to determine if you are eligible to travel to the United States under the VWP for business. Your ESTA document is valid for two years and must be updated if you get a new passport or change your name or country of citizenship.
