    H4 EAD to what business visa?

    Thanks JoeF! I am assuming you're referring to "International Entrepreneur Parole." Even the DHS website says that it's proposing a rule to end the program. So, I am assuming it hasn't ended yet and applications can still be submitted? Now for requirements, I don't have any funding yet, but yes I have received several awards, recognition & certificates from local government and state assembly. Mine is not a tech start-up though, but focusses more on Cultural Development - very similar to what some non-profits do, but I run it as for profit. Also, on DHS website it doesn't say anything about board of directors. Regardless, is there any other visa which I could temporarily move to that's meant for such type of activities/organizations? I saw your reply to the L1 option as well. The one year working abroad requirements is physical or just paperwork? Reason why I am asking is because I consulted a local attorney and that person advised me that as long as I am listed as 50% shareholder of the foreign branch and can show paychecks for last 12 months then that suffice that requirement. However, I was not 100% satisfied with this answer, and just wanted to check if that really is an option here. EDIt: By the way, I just read some of the requirements for EB1 "Extraordinary Ability" and I think I can qualify for 3-4/10 criteria for the the Cultural Development work I do. Now, the question is Can I file that by myself or do I need an employer? Thanks again!

    Business on H4 Visa and on H4 EAD

    Depends on who looks at it. From tax purposes, no issues. From visa purposes, yes there's an issue if you are making money while not on H4.
  3. Hello, While on H4 EAD, I set-up a startup company couple years ago, with offices here in US and in my home country as well. The company is doing great and I just don't want to loose it because of instability of H4 EAD. So, does anybody know what kind of visa is available for entrepreneurs? Somebody suggested me to invest half a million and go for some EB5, but I don't want to go for it. I employ a lot of people and wanted to know what option is there for somebody in a situation similar to mine. Thanks

    H4 EAD to what L1 Visa?

    Hello, While on H4 EAD, I set-up a startup company couple years ago, with offices here in US and in my home country as well. The company is doing great and I just don't want to loose it because of instability of H4 EAD. So, does anybody know what kind of visa is available for entrepreneurs? Somebody suggested me to invest half a million and go for some EB5, but I don't want to go for it. I just wanted to know if L1 is an option here and how to do it? I don't really care what L1 category it falls under, my only goal is to continue running my business without any interruptions. Thanks
