How To Get An Investor Visa
U.S. immigration law is intended to protect U.S. employers and assist them with locating and recruiting foreign workers where needed. U.S. immigration law is also set up to protect U.S. workers from losing jobs to foreign-born workers.

Within this structure, there are still opportunities for U.S. employers to sponsor foreign workers for temporary visas and legal permanent residency (green card) in the United States.
In some cases the U.S. employer must test the labor market and establish that there is no U.S. worker(s) available to fill the position before filing a petition with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services office. In other cases it is possible for highly-skilled individuals to immigrate without the necessity of having the U.S. employer test the labor market.
The level of skill required for the position, among other variables, determines which category of employment-based immigration you will be eligible to immigrate through.

There are four options available to discuss with prospective investors under U.S. immigration laws:
The L-1 and E-2 options, being nonimmigrant visa options, enable the investor to get to the U.S. quicker than the EB-5 options, which are permanent residence options.
