Investor visa (E-2) for franchisee from Canada

Our client has been operating a successful franchise in Canada and identified an opportunity for her business in the fast growing Phoenix area. She formed an Arizona company and transferred her franchise territories to Arizona. We had to establish the value of the investment to establish that her investment is “substantial”. We has also established that the enterprise is real and doing business along with a business plan for Arizona operations. We had to also show that the investment is not marginal. The business certainly require employees to run the business and had healthy financials.

We guided our client through the E-2 visa process, prepared the investor visa (E-2) application and assisted her with the interview. The investor visa was approved in just a few weeks.
