Immigration Strategies & New Opportunities for Foreign Entrepreneurs

In this presentation, Goldman discussed how the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services has announced that the H-1B nonimmigrant and National Interest Waiver immigrant visa categories will now be more friendly to foreign national entrepreneurs who are creating jobs in the US.

This interactive workshop helped to clarify the viability of this new initiative; offered foreign national entrepreneurs a road-map which may make all the difference when filing immigration petitions; and helped start-up companies understand where they are heading when they have key personnel who have immigration considerations.

Goldman shared strategies for documenting “significant impact in the field” required for National Interest Waivers; how an entrepreneur with his/her own start-up can prove a legitimate “employer—employee” relationship that is required for H-1B; and the best timing for filing immigration petitions.
