The goal for many business immigrants is lawful permanent residence status, otherwise known as a green card. Investors can obtain a green card if they have or are in the process of investing at least $500,000 in a for-profit venture that benefits the U.S. economy and creates at least ten full-time jobs for American workers. On the other hand, those seeking employment-based petitions may qualify for a number of reasons, including for people with extraordinary abilities including scientists, noted artists, entertainers, athletes, and many others.

Those either unable or not interested in trying to attain lawful permanent resident status can opt for a temporary business visa (nonimmigrant) instead. Several options for business-related visas exist, including:

  • Nonimmigrant Treaty Traders and Investors: Foreign nationals may be able to earn this visa if they are visiting the United States to carry out trade of significant capital between the United States and the individual’s home country.
  • Nonimmigrant Visa for Intra-Company Transferee: Individuals who have worked abroad for one organization for a full year or more may be allowed to work for a subsidiary of the organization.
  • Specialty Occupation Nonimmigrant Visa: Those who perform complex or unique work that requires a degree.
  • Nonimmigrant Visitors for Business: A short-term visa granted for training, business meetings or conferences.
  • Nonimmigrant Visa for Aliens of Extraordinary Ability: Those who have extraordinary ability in athletics, business, education, arts, or sciences.
  • Nonimmigrant Visa for Outstanding Athletes, Artists & Entertainers: This category is reserved for entertainers or athletes who have received international or national recognition.
