Why USA Business Visas are Generally Great Ideas?

The US economy is often topic of much discussion. More notably, how to get it to grow year after year. This is because a good economy usually means higher employment and higher paying jobs. Since the United States is a capitalist country, it looks very favorable on businesses and investments. An immigrant will take this into their advantage. This is one method that an immigrant may use to help obtain a visa into the United States.

The United States provides a way for investors to invest money into the US economy. With their investment, the immigrant may be granted a visa to enter the United States. This is because the government believes that investments from individual immigrants will help generate more jobs and create more wealth within the United States. This in theory translates to a growing economy. Therefore, to reward the immigrant investor, the United States Government may grant them a visa.

Investing a large amount of funds into a business is great. In Eb5 indirect visas, a third party investor will help you to invest. In Eb5 direct investment, L1 and E2 Visas, the immigrant investor will take an active role in the business. This is done by the United States government to help ensure that the business will succeed and continue to grow, which is what the intention of the visa really is, to help grow the economy, help create jobs, help create wealth by attracting businesses, capitals and human resources—capitalism, success and America dream.

The United States government knows that all investments are important, as does any competent investor. United States is one of the largest economies in the world. California itself is the 6th largest economy in the world. Businesses in the US, if correctly set up would make a lot of money. Therefore, it is important for any potential immigrant investor to do some research in the business they are looking to make an investment in. The more information the immigration investor has at their disposal, the better equip they will be when it comes to making their decision where they would like to invest.

One of the most important things to consider when applying for an investment type visa is how complex it is. This is why it is strongly recommended to seek the guidance of an experienced and competent immigration attorney.

The attorney will help guide you through all the paperwork that must be completed, making sure that things are filled out correctly and that you are providing the best argument for why you should be granted a visa. They will help make your application look good.

One thing you do not want is to have many errors in your application. This is because errors will cause your application to be delayed and there is a cap to the number of visas the government grants when it comes to investors.

If you believe that making an investment in a United States business is a good idea and a good way to obtain a visa to enter the United States, then it is just as good an investment to hire an immigration attorney. This is because investment based green card such as the EB5 and E2 Visa is are expensive due to the large amount of investment needed. As such, you want someone who is familiar with these types of visas to help facilitate the process, helping ensure a smooth acquisition of the visa for the immigrant.

In order to be sure that you meet the requirements for an immigrant Visa and/ or to properly file a petition, it is advisable to seek legal guidance from an experienced immigration attorney.

New Sanctions Against Iran and Businesses, What to Do Next?

The President of the United States, Donald J. Trump recently singed an executive order that re-imposed all sanctions that were lifted or waived in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action of July 14,2015. The plan reimposes sanctions on groups and individuals that the Secretary of the Treasure, with the guidance of the Secretary of State finds to be in violation of certain human rights or support of terrorist activities by the Iranian government, its agents, and individuals.

The President signed this executive order to apply financial pressure on the government of Iran with the hopes of swaying the governments’ pursuit of researching and developing newer modern missiles with long range capabilities, its support of terrorist groups, and to stop the activities of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.

To apply this pressure, the newly signed Executive order prevents the government of Iran from purchasing U.S. Bank Notes or of precious metals. It also applies pressure against persons whom are involved in the energy, shipping, or shipbuilding sectors of Iran if the person is found to have provided significant financial, material, or other support to the government of Iran.

The Secretary of the Treasury, is authorized to impose sanctions to those it deems has violated, including the prohibition of loans from US institutions totaling more than $10,000 in any 12-month period, blocking transfer of credits from the individual, or from restricting or prohibiting the importation of that individual’s goods, technology, or services, just to list a few sanctions.
The Executive Order goes on to further allow the sanctions of individuals who had in some way business dealings with the purchase or sale of the Iranian Rial. It also affects individuals who have maintained the Rial funds in accounts outside of the country of Iran.

The Executive Order also targets the delivery of goods that may be used by the people of Iran that may be used to commit human rights violations and censorships. Such examples of these goods include but are not limited to food, medicine, or medical devices.

This new order was also created to help provide clarity and to consolidate all the relevant authorities into a single document. Because of the complexity of the OFAC sanctions against Iran, this new Executive Order was created to help locate relevant information easier.

One of the purposes of the Executive Order is to help keep the government of Iran, or its agents from censoring the population of Iran. This is because such censorship may lead to abuse of human rights of the people of Iran. This also stretches to individual businesses who work with the government of Iran to help block the transmission of date between the citizens of Iran, those who oppose the public from assembling, and other types of censorship.

What’s important to note, is that the President’s new Executive Order takes place on August 7, 2018 at 12:01 Eastern Daylight Time. However, the sanctions do not take place until the actions are taken after November 5th. 2018. This is because certain sanctions that had been previously lifted would be initiated again 90 days after May 8th, the so called “wind down period”.

Luckily updated OFAC sanctions would still leave the door to applying proper licenses necessary to carry on business. We encourage you to consult with a knowledgeable attorney to continue your business following all the new rules.

Maritime ( Admiralty) Laws Govern International Waters

We all know that each sovereign nation is allowed to set up laws that they see fit to help keep its people safe. There are even international laws that keep sovereign nations from passing laws that violate basic human right. But what keeps the people safe while out at sea?

Maritime law, also known as Admiralty law is are the laws that govern international waters, nautical issues, marine commerce, marine navigation, salvage, maritime pollution, seafarers’ rights, and the carriage by sea of both passengers and goods, this law also covers land-based commercial activities such as marine insurance.

A few of the more known areas of Maritime law include Negligence. A shipowner owns a duty of reasonable care to its passengers. Similar to a passenger on a bus or airplane, if there is an injury caused due to negligence on behalf of the owner of the vehicle, the injured passenger may be able to bring a suit against them so long as they can prove the negligence.

Another well-known area that maritime law deals with Maritime liens. This, similar to liens on a house, means that a ship can have liens placed against them to help recoup losses such as from seamen who have not been paid, vendors who supply fuel and other necessary stores to the shipowner, or even a bank who issues the loan used to initially purchase the ship. These liens can cause the ship to be seized in order to get the due payments.

Finally, there is the issue of marine salvage. The seas are unpredictable. Cargo is lost at sea all the time. When property is lost at sea and rescued by a different party, the rescuing party is entitled to a claim to the salvaged property.

This does not mean that the rescuing ship can just stand by and watch a ship sink and watch its passengers drown. All mariners have a duty to save the lives of other people at sea. Even if there is no reward expected. People are not property and cannot be salvaged to lay claim on.`

J1 Visas: Cultural affairs, exchange of faculty, researchers and students ( No Trump Travel Ban Imposed against J visas- No Trump Waiver for Iranian Nationals Needed)

The United States has always been regarded as a melting pot of cultures and ideas. Where immigrants could bring with them their culture and heritage and still adopt the American way of life, without giving up who they are and how they were raised.

To help promote cultural understanding and education, the United States offers the J-1 Exchange Visitor Program. This is for the benefit of both Americans and of people from other countries.

This visa benefits the Americans by allowing them to be in contact with people from different parts of the world. Experience their language, their foods, and more importantly get a perspective on how people from other regions of the world think.

The way this benefits the foreign national is that for starters they are allowed into the United States. They get to experience all the culture, art, and cuisine that not just native-born Americans have to offer, but what the world has to offer since they will be in contact with people from all over the world who immigrated to the United States.

Once the immigrant obtains their J-1 visa, they may be allowed to stay in the United States for up to 5 years. In this time, they can absorb as much as the United States has to offer. But as mentioned earlier, the immigrant does not have to compromise the way they were brought raised.

Once they complete their program, the J-1 Visitor are expected to return to their countries.

If the J-1 visitor has a family, such as a spouse and children under the age of 21, they may be allowed to come with the visitor.

To help you complete all the required form and to guide you with which documents you may need, it is highly advisable to obtain the guidance from a seasoned and competent immigration attorney. This may make the process much easier and less stressful.

One of the important requirements to the J-1 visa is that the visitor has a sufficient level of English proficiency. There are other requirements that the visitor must meet before they can obtain this visa. This is why having the guidance of a competent immigration attorney is advisable.

In order to be sure that you meet the requirements for an immigrant Visa and/ or to properly file a petition, it is advisable to seek legal guidance from an experienced immigration attorney.

Good Moral Character and Green Card

When it comes to deciding whether a person is granted their visa, the government does consider their moral character. Now this isn’t the only factor they consider when reviewing an application, but it is an important factor.
When the government thinks of a person as having good moral character, they are generally the type of person that has had zero to very few run ins with law enforcement. This also mean having no real convictions, especially the more serious kind such as felonies.
However, criminal charges are not necessarily the only factor of what a good or bad moral character is.
Drug and alcohol usage may also be a factor when it comes to good moral character. Past usage of drugs and heavy usage of alcohol aren’t a guaranteed disqualifier; however, it may get the government to look more closely at your application.
Another factor of good moral character is if you fulfill your obligations. This means, you don’t have any leans against you either through a lawsuit against you, or worse. Let’s say you were married with children and became divorced. If you have had to pay alimony and child support but didn’t, then that may be taken as a sign of bad moral character.
As stated before, these examples do not necessarily mean that your file will be rejected, however the one sure way to have your file rejected is to lie. If you have had issues with alcohol in the past, or other things such as gambling problems, the best thing your can do is be forthcoming with that information.
This is because the government is very thorough and will probably discover all the bad things in your history. And if you make it difficult for them, they will not look at your past very favorably.
You can always explain things that happened in your past and minimize the damage it has on your case. Especially if it is in the distant past of your life and its no longer a part of your life. Lying about it however is the worst thing you can do.
But before you admit any guilt to an immigration officer, it is very advisable to hire an experienced and capable immigration attorney to hear all the facts of your case. This is because there may be things that you have done that you feel bad about that may not necessarily be considered a lack of good moral character.
One example of this is traffic violations. You may have received a ticket for speeding and may indeed feel bad about it, however it is not really considered as a sign of a bad moral character.
The most important thing to remember is: for the best advice for your personal file, it’s a good idea to hire a seasoned and competent immigration attorney. Never lie. And depending on the advice of your attorney, be forthcoming with the government.
In order to be sure that you meet the requirements for an immigrant Visa and/ or to properly file a petition, it is advisable to seek legal guidance from an experienced immigration attorney.

US Business Immigration

The term “Investment Immigration” refers to immigrant or non-immigrant visas which would be obtained through direct investment in the USA to benefit US economy. Following is a summary and description of few of these visas.

L1 Visas

A U.S. L1 visa is a temporary visa where a foreign national who transfers to the United States to work in an executive position, managerial position, or some other specialized field for the sole purpose of employment. For this visa, the foreign national transfers from a foreign office to the United states where there is a business established under the umbrella of the foreign company or an affiliate of the foreign company.

If the foreign national being transferred under the L1 visa has a family, the family is allowed to immigrate with them under a different visa. This includes the foreign national’s spouse and children under the age of 21.

A nice thing about the L1 visa is that it is usable for foreign corporations of all sizes, not just the titans of the industry but the smaller businesses and even startups. Another nice thing about this visa is that it is available for foreign nationals of any country, as long as they meet the requirements associated with this visa. To know whether you may qualify for this visa, it is advisable to seek legal guidance from and experienced and competent U.S. immigration attorney.

Another benefit to the L1 visa is that although it is a temporary visa, the foreign national is allowed to apply for a green card and it should not cause any issues or complications with their current L1 visa.

Once the L1 visa is obtained, the foreign national must be aware that it is only a temporary visa and it has an expiration date. It is the responsibility of the foreign national to keep track of this date. It is also important to mention that depending from which country the foreign national is obtaining the visa, there are different expiration dates, some countries have expiration dates that expire sooner than others.

In some cases, it is possible for the foreign national to keep getting extensions on their visa, so they can stay in the United States longer. The maximum amount of time that the L1 visa allows the foreign national to stay is 7 years.

Obtaining the L1 visa requires the foreign national to show that once in the U.S., they will have managerial responsibilities, be in charge of overseeing the companies’ staff, or be in an important supervisory role.

The L1 visa also allows a foreign national to enter the United States so long as they posses a specialized skill or specialized knowledge of procedures, products, service systems, and a few other categories. The worker must prove that they have worked for the same employer for a minimum of a whole year in the foreign country before attempting to come to the United States using a L1 visa.

For this visa, it is the employer of the foreign national, i.e. someone in a position of power in the foreign company to petition on behalf of the worker. The worker must also have been employed for a minimum of one year with the company.

A perk of this visa is that there is no limit to the number of L1 visas that the government may issue. Furthermore, there is no specific educational degree that the foreign national worker has to possess.

Finally, the foreign worker does not have to spend all their time in the United States. The foreign national that holds a L1 visa is allowed to split their time between work in the United States and in another country. The must however, commit a majority of their time working in the United States for the company that employs them.

It is often a good idea to have a schedule so that the foreign national is better able to keep track of their time working in the United States, so that they can commit more time working in the United States company if necessary.

In order to be sure that you meet the requirements for an L-1 Visa and/ or to properly file a petition, it is advisable to seek legal guidance from an experienced immigration attorney.

EB5- Direct Investment

A similar visa to the L-1 visa is the EB5 visa. The difference here is that the foreign national must make an investment in into a business. Like any investment though, there is always a risk that the investor will lose all their money if the business fails. But a positive of this investment is that the investor must be actively engaged in the operations of the business, so they have a great control of the business.

E-2 Treaty Investors

Another similar visa to the L-1 visa is the E-2 Treaty Investor visa. The drawback to this visa is that the investor has to invest a very large amount of funds into a business. In this visa, the investor has less control of their investment. Also, the invested business is usually a business that is not doing too well and has to have a significant investment if it wishes to avoid bankruptcy. Finally, the investor must show that the business will do well enough, and generate enough funds for the investor to live off of for 5 years.

In Conclusion

Investment is a great way to migrate to or capitalize your investment in the US. US has huge market and would create generous economic returns. And United States Citizenship Services (www.USCIS.gov) has implanted Visas that would support the investor’s coming and investment in the US.

In order to be sure that you meet the requirements for an immigrant Visa and/ or to properly file a petition, it is advisable to seek legal guidance from an experienced immigration attorney.

Women’s Right Violations in Muslim Countries and US Asylum Seekers

For a “Muslim Woman” living in a Muslim nation, having her basic human rights violated is the norm. This is because “Muslim Women” have very few rights in these countries, if any at all. Many “Muslim Women” do not have the right to choose who they marry, have difficulty obtaining an education, and can be killed for having either pre-martial sexual relations or extramarital relationships. Furthermore, many of the Muslim nations choose to follow Shariah Law, which sets out the rights given to women unequally.

For an “Afghan woman” (woman living in Afghanistan), the fear of fleeing from their families is very real because of the punishment that comes with this crime, and yes, it is a crime for an “Afghan woman” to flee from her family. The “Afghan woman” may be fleeing in order to escape from an abusive marriage, or to escape from a forced marriage. Although the government has tried to loosen the punishment for these women by attempting to pass a law called the Elimination of Violence Against Women law, many in parliament appose these changes and wish to keep the old punishments in place.

For a “Palestinian Woman” (woman living in Palestine) the fear of being murdered through “honor killing” is very real. “Honor killing” is when a woman is killed for a number of reasons including having an extramarital affair. Worst yet, the woman does not have to be “guilty of the crime”. The mere suspicion of being unfaithful is enough to warrant a sentence of death. Furthermore, the “Palestinian woman” is not even allowed to choose who she marries. In many cases the male “guardian” to the woman chooses her spouse and even negotiates the wedding contract. The men on the other hand are given all the freedom to choose who they take as a wife.

For “Turkish women” (women living in Turkey), the inequality between men and women is large. In many cases it is difficult for women to obtain education, employment, and even get treatment for reproductive health. Furthermore, there is still a large number of deaths reported due to domestic violence and “honor killings”.

For a “Saudi Woman” (woman living in Saudi Arabia), the rights she is given are almost nonexistent. There is little a “Saudi Woman” can do without the consent of a “male guardian”. This includes obtaining work, obtaining healthcare, renting an apartment, or even travelling. On top of the, the “male guardian” may even be the son of the woman. Therefore the “Saudi Mother” may require permission from her son in order to do some of the basic things allowed in public. Failure to follow these rules could lead to serious punishments including prison sentences or worse.

“Honor Killing” remains a serious concern in Pakistan. A “Pakistani woman” (woman living in Pakistan) who has been accused of having an extramarital affair may face being killed by a man, often the spouse. Worse yet, although “honor killing” is against the law, it is rarely enforced since the family of the victim is allowed to pardon the killer, who is himself often a member of the family.

Married women in Kuwait have little protection by the law when it comes to domestic violence. A “Kuwaiti woman” (woman living in Kuwait) can be beaten and raped without any real consequence to their spouse because these crimes are not against the law in Kuwait.

In Azerbaijan, forced prostitution is a serious concern for many “Azeri women” (woman living in Azerbaijan). This crime is made more horrendous when you take into consideration that a few to many of the prostitution houses are allegedly run by high ranking government officials

Discrimination in Persian Gulf Countries

For an “Iranian Woman” , Persian Woman” (woman living in Iran), if she were to marry a foreign-born man and have children with him, her children would not be recognized as Iranian. It gets worse, it is legal for an “Iranian girl . Persian girl” (girl living in Iran) to be forced to marry as early as her 13th birthday. Worst yet, it is perfectly legal for a man to have intercourse with a 9-year-old girl.

Discrimination is something that a “Bahraini Woman” (woman living in Bahrain) faces every day in Bahrain. There are no rules or laws that prevent discrimination on “the grounds of gender, gender identity, or sexual orientation”.

https://www.hrw.org/world-report/2018/country-chapters/bahrain

For a “Woman living in Yemen” (Yemeni Woman), facing daily discrimination is an everyday occurrence. Compact the discrimination she faces, whether it’s being unable to marry who they wish, obtain a divorce to escape a violent marriage, or even obtain child custody if the male does grant her the divorce. Worse yet, the government of Yemen is unwilling to do anything to pass laws to protect its women.

For a married “woman living in the United Arab Emirates”, marriage may seem like a form of enslavement. A woman is unable to choose who she marries, is unable to obtain a divorce without court approval, and worst of all a woman must obey her husband. That includes having sexual relations with him almost anytime he wants.

A “Qatari Woman” (woman living in Qatar), living in Qatar is supposed to be an obedient woman. She has few protections under Qatari law. She must marry who she is told to marry, obey her husband, and obtaining a divorce is very difficult. Under Qatari law, a woman who is rape and reports it is guilty of extramarital sex and depending on her marital situation she may be sentenced to prison or death.

According to Jordanian law, if a Muslim “Jordanian Woman” (woman living in Jordan) marries a non-Muslim man, the government will not recognize the marriage. Worse yet, if the married couple has children, the “Jordanian woman” cannot pass her nationality to her children.

Human trafficking is a real fear that many “Lebanese women and girls” (women living in Lebanon) face in Lebanon. This is because although the practice of human trafficking is illegal, the government either through incompetence or indifference does not coordinate investigations to help prevent it.

In Oman, there are no crimes against domestic violence or marital rape. This makes it difficult for “Omani Women” (woman living in Oman) to report these crimes since the only crime they would be able to bring forward is simple battery or assault charges.

For an “Egyptian Woman” (woman living in Egypt) that is abused both physically or verbally, the government in a way blames the “Egyptian Woman” being abused. They have come out and told women to be careful how they act in public, urging “women to avoid talking or laughing loudly in public and to be cautious about how they dress to avoid street harassment.”

https://www.hrw.org/world-report/2017/country-chapters/egypt

A “Libyan Woman” (woman living in Libya) is offered little protection from the Libyan government. A man may be given a reduced sentence if he believes his wife is cheating on him and he kills her for it. Furthermore, A male rapist of a woman can escape punishment if he marries his victim.

For an “Algerian Woman” (woman living in Algeria), the law has given them many protections and on paper has made a lot of steps for gender equality. In reality however, things are different such as the police doing their job in investigating crimes against “Algerian Women” cause by male relatives and spouses.

Former Soviet Union Blocks

Domestic violence is something that many “Kyrgyzstani Women” (women living in Kyrgyzstan) face constantly. This is because although there are laws prohibiting domestic violence, the police do not enforce these crimes often and hence few cases are heard in the courts.

In Tajikistan, it is left to the married “Tajikistani woman” (woman living in Tajikistan) to gather evidence when it comes to domestic violence and marital rape. This makes it difficult for the courts to hear these crimes since the police rarely get involved, leaving women to have to just put up with the violence.

Unique to Kazakhstan is the practice of bride kidnapping. This is when a “Kazakhstani woman” (woman living in Kazakhstan) is kidnapped and forced into marriage by a man without her consent. Often after the marriage/ kidnapping the male gives some amount of money to the wives’ family to escape conviction.

Life for women around the world is not as easy as countries like USA. If you are a female, Currently on US soil, you may qualify to seek asylum.

In order to be sure that you meet the requirements for an immigrant Visa and/ or to properly file a petition, it is advisable to seek legal guidance from an experienced immigration attorney.
