On 'regional centers' and what they mean for investor visas

A few weeks ago, we wrote a post about the different types of investor visas that are available. The specifics of each type vary, but in a general sense, it is safe to assume that if you want to obtain an investor visa, you will need to make a significant financial contribution to a commercial enterprise and/or have that investment create a certain number of jobs.

When considering an investment or business visa, consider us

The advent of the internet and its continued and unending proliferation has changed the world forever, and in many ways that is a good thing. The world got "smaller," in a sense, allowing people from all over the world to communicate and exchange ideas. This is very important in a social sense, but it's also important in for business and collaborating on ideas.

Being I-9 compliant and the importance of dealing with I-9 issues

Any employer in this country has to file I-9 forms on behalf of their employees. I-9 forms have to be filed out for every employee regardless of whether they are in the country on a visa or if they are a citizen. Essentially, I-9 forms are a system of verification both for employers and employees. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has been using the I-9 system in recent years to crack down on employees are employers who are not compliant.

Let's say that you live in a different country but you want to live in the United States. You're holding down a steady job in your home country, but you also believe that your skills would be of tremendous use here in the U.S. So you look into obtaining an employment visa so that you can move to the U.S. However, you are overwhelmed by the options. There are so many different employment visas out there that it would be understandable if you had no idea which visa to pick.
