We Help Clients Obtain Student (F-1) Tourist (B-2,) Business (B-1/B-2) and Trainee
Immigration Law Associates Assists Student, Tourist, Business and Trainee Visitors to Obtain U.S. Visas
Foreign nationals wishing to come to the U.S. on temporary visits for tourism, study, business or training face a host of challenges, as do their sponsors and employers. We have helped clients in many diverse situations achieve their goals in the U.S. Here are some examples.
- A Canadian computer game designer was looking to improve his skills with a U.S. company. However, he did not qualify for an H-1B or Trade Nafta (TN) visa. We were able to work with the employer and structure a training program that met DOS’ quite specific requirements, and our client’s J-1 visa was approved
- A U.S. auto mechanic shop which exports autos to Eastern Europe wished to hire a sales agent to establish a new sales office in Lithuania. We helped the company design a training program that qualified under H-3 visa regulations. The shop was then able to bring an Eastern European national to the U.S. to train and work temporarily in the business
- A foreign national already in the U.S. on a tourist (B-2) visa decided to open a business in the U.S. We were able to help her change status to B-1, a temporary visa that allowed her to start the business. Subsequently, we assisted her in changing status again to E-2, a nonimmigrant visa category for investors, so that she could develop and direct her new business.
