San Francisco Investment-Based Immigration Lawyer

Experienced Legal Guidance for Investment Visas & Green Cards in California

The United States offers investment-based immigration for foreign nationals who are seeking to invest in the country. Applicants must demonstrate that their commercial enterprise will greatly benefit the U.S. economy by providing jobs.

This type of visa and green card offers foreign nationals a great opportunity to continue their work in the U.S. while potentially allowing for their family to join them. Whether you are seeking to obtain a green card or visa, our San Francisco attorney at The Law Office of Zhang can provide you with the strong legal counsel you need.

Comparing EB-5 and E-2 Visa Options in San Francisco

At The Law Office of Zhang, we can provide you with legal assistance for EB-5 and E-2 applications. With a case evaluation, our legal team can outline your options, giving you the advice you need to make a well-informed decision.

An E-2 visa is a temporary visa that allows an applicant to work in the United States while they are conducting business. An EB-5 green card gives the applicant permanent resident status. Each one requires applicants to meet certain criteria in order to qualify.

Some of the differences between an E-2 visa and EB-5 green card include:

  • EB-5 green cards require a higher capital than E-2 visas
  • In order to qualify for an EB-5 green card, the commercial enterprise must employ 10 full-time U.S. employees
  • E-2 visas typically take significantly less time to process
    EB-5 green card holders are allowed to stay in the U.S. for life as permanent residents

E-2 visa holders are allowed to stay in the U.S. on a temporary basis
We also provide legal assistance for the following investment-based services:

  • E-1
  • Company formation (LLC, Incorporation)
