PBBI has helped many Europeans (because of our European office) and other foreigners to immigrate to the US. As you already might know, it's not easy to apply for a US visa. We offer the possibility to buy a business and apply for an E2 visa.
Why buy a business and not start one?
1) Until now, all our clients (so 100%) who have bought an existing business have been approved for a visa. With a new business the chances not to be approved for a visa are high.
2) When you buy an existing business you make money from day one, a new business will take months (or even a year or years) before it generates profit.
of E-visa holders may work
in the United States under special permission from the INS.
An E-2 visa is presently usually issued for a period of two years, although it can be granted for up to five years. The visa can, however, be extended indefinitely
, each time for a further two to five years.
The E-2 visa can never lead directly to Permanent Residency ("Green Card"). It should be noted that children of E-2 visa holders can only remain in the United States under the father's or mother's E-2 visa until they reach the age of twenty-one. At that time, they will have to return to their country of origin or obtain a visa for themselves.
