L-1 visa also involves a possibility of doing business in the United States. Under the US laws, an L-type visa is considered to be a tool for moving executive officers and managers of foreign companies to offices based in the United States. Also, an L-1 visa is issued to foreign nationals employed in the US companies abroad, to attract them to the US-based main offices. Whereas for obtaining an EB-5 visa it is not required to provide a detailed background for investor qualifications and managerial experience, a situation is different with an L-type visa. An individual petition must be supported by a number of documents. These documents shall include not only bank statements and financial documentation, but also promotional materials, job descriptions, business cards of employees, etc.
Those who invested in the development and management of business in the United States may apply for an E-2 visa. An important condition: an investor must hold 50% of shares in the US company.
L-1 and E-2 visas are not immigration visas. In order to obtain permanent resident status in the USA, L-1 and E-2 visa holders need to switch to a different visa category - often it is an EB-5 visa.
