Along with the Business Immigration Subcommittee of the New York City Bar Association, in cooperation with the New York City Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs, and the New York Law School Safe Passage project, I presented:

Understanding U.S. Business Visas 101

Attendees enjoyed a FREE educational presentation designed for foreign consular officials. The program explored some of the temporary and permanent U.S. business visas available to foreign nationals. The goal of this program is to help foreign nationals learn more about U.S. investment and work visas.

I made the opening presentation where I discussed the E-5 Investor Green Card as well as a closing presentation on consular processing. The presentation utilized hypothetical situations based on real cases to highlight how visas work on a practical level.

The topics included:

– EB-5 (immigrant investor visa resulting in a green card)

– Non-immigrant visa categories: for traders/investors (E-1/E-2); intracompany transferees

– (L-1A/L-1B); and other work visas for professionals (H-1B, TN) and artists (O-1)

– Permanent residency (green card) issues

– Consular processing (applying for US visas at a US consular post abroad)

Event was held: Wednesday, May 28, 2014 from 6 – 8 pm at New York Law School, room W320.
