Rank #5: National Interest Waivers Explained by Shah Peerally

Podcast cover
Read more
As there is no statutory or regulatory definition of the term “national interest”, USCIS relies on a 1998 Administrative Appeals Office precedent decision setting forth a three-prong test for evaluating requests for a national interest waiver. See Matter of New York State Department of Transportation, 22 I&N Dec. 215 (Comm’r 1998) (“NYSDOT”). These three prongs are outlined below. Requirement 1 - You must show that you plan on working in the United States in an area of substantial intrinsic merit. Requirement 2: You must show that the proposed impact of your work is national in scope. Requirement 3: You must show waiving the labor certification requirement would benefit the national interests of the United States. Information provided is purely educational. You should not take it as legal advice. No-attorney client relationship is created by this podcast.

Rank #8: E2 Investor Visa for special Treaty Countries

Podcast cover
Read more
An E-2 is a visa is for a foreign national of a “investor treaty” country, coming to the US to direct the operations of an enterprise in which the investor has invested or is actively in the process of investing a substantial amount of capital. This visa may also be obtained by key employees of the business. Key considerations include: i) whether the foreigner is a national for a country that has an E-2 investor treaty, ii) that the business is 50% owned by foreigners of the treaty country, iii) that the foreigner is either a 50% owner or a key employee of the company, iv) that and that the investment is “substantial.” E-2 Immigration LawyersIn order to determine if the foreigner is a national of a qualified country, we must refer to Volume 9 of the Foreign Affairs Manual, section 41.51, Ex. 1. If the foreign national’s country is not on this list, then E-2 is not an option. Establishing that at least 50% of the US business is owned by eligible foreigners obviously depends on the nationality of the owners. Interestingly enough, however, is that if one of the owners is a US lawful permanent resident, that person’s ownership is not considered to be that of a foreigner, even if that person is a citizen of a qualifying treaty trade eligible country. While an owner who owns at least 50% of the US business is eligible for E-2, “key employees” are also eligible. A key employee must prove that they are either an “essential skills” worker whose skills are essential to the trading enterprise or key executives. Proving “substantial investment” is not a precise art because the regulations do not specifically define “substantial.” At a minimum, the investment should produce a return that is higher than a mere income to support the investor and her/her family. Three factors to consider are 1) dollars invested ($200K is a reasonably safe minimum, but some have obtained E-2 visas on initial investments as small as $50K), 2) proof that the amount is enough to capitalize business functions (this obviously varies by business), and 3) the investment should go beyond marginal job creation (that is, at least beyond creating a job just for the investor). http://www.peerallylaw.com/en/content/view/517 List of Treaty countries: https://travel.state.gov/content/visas/en/fees/treaty.html

Rank #9: Visa Bulletin Waiting Stories.

Podcast cover
Read more
This June 2016 Visa Bulletin shows a retrogression for India and China of EB2 category of almost 4 years for India. In May 2016, India was at least in 2008. In June 2016, it is becoming a 12 years behind the current year. Not only the employment based (EB) is retrogressed but the family based (F4) category is also retrogressed for both. Indeed the June 2016 Visa Bulletin shows a disturbing processing time which ultimately is making many loose faith in the system. The government in October 2015 raise the hopes up with a new system of the visa bulletin where they divided the visa bulletin dates into two parts including an acceptance time and then a processing time. Many started to have hope again. Then during that great hope, came another bad news: the government retrogressed the dates even before they came into effect. http://immigrationlegalblog.com/2016/05/keeping-the-visa-bulletin-retrogressed-is-not-only-unfair-but-immoral/

Podcast cover
Read more
What Is an I-601 Waiver, and When is it Required? Some foreign nationals may be deemed inadmissible under INA 212(a), which covers bases including unlawful presence, criminal violations, and immigration fraud or misrepresentation.
