Default E2 Visa Northern California

Hi Guys,

Calling all British E2 Visa holders!

My wife and I are considering applying for E2 Business Investor Visa and have a load of questions which we hope to get some help on from this forum.

We are planning on making the application in Jan-18 and are hoping to be in California by Autumn 2018; more specifically northern California.

We currently have a digital marketing consultancy in the UK and are planning to open a US consultancy with the help of our attorney.

We have a few questions and it would be great if we could have a chat through some of your experiences. Mainly around the process. <<<SNIP>>>

Thanks,
J

Hi

Apologies and appreciate what you're saying.

I saw your post about "DM'ing" afterwards so I'll be sure not to do this in the future.

I will make sure to post my questions in the correct areas of the forum.

Thanks,
J

There may be better options, how many employees do you currently have?

Hi

Thanks for your reply - we don't have any employees yet - we use sub-contractors in the UK as and when we need to.

Thanks,
J

Northern California is quite a big place.

Do you really mean "the San Francisco Bay Area" or are you thinking more in terms of Mendocino or Humboldt counties?

E2 is not a popular visa, particularly if you have kids as they age out at 21. You need to have employees so you would have to change your business model. If it was at all possible take a look if your company would qualify for a L1 visa as this, currently, can lead to a green card. As an E2 visa holder living in Folsom I would be happy to answer any specific questions.
