)-- Green and Spiegel attorney Matthew Galati has successfully utilized the Grenada Citizenship by Investment (CBI) option to secure an E-2 Visa for Mr. M.L., originally from Mainland China. This unique CBI route enabled the successful Chinese businessman to open an educational company in a major city in the Northeastern U.S., an immigration option not previously available to him because of his nationality.
“We were thrilled to receive the positive news from the Consulate,” said Philadelphia-based immigration attorney, Matthew Galati. “The E-2 visa is a win-win classification that results in the creation of American jobs. It’s a shame it is only open to certain nationalities. Fortunately, Grenada provides a relatively fast and straightforward immigration option. I couldn’t be happier for my client and his family in welcoming them to the U.S.”
For most foreign entrepreneurs, the E-2 non-immigrant investor visa is the easiest route to open a business in the United States. However, unlike most visa categories, the E-2 visa is only available to certain nationalities around the world. In order to be able to even apply for an E-2 visa, there must be a treaty in place between the U.S. and the country of the applicant’s passport. Unfortunately, the U.S. lacks treaties with some of the world’s most populous countries that are home to millions of prospective entrepreneurs, including P.R. China, India, Brazil, Vietnam, and Russia, to name a few. Moreover, long EB-5 backlogs for certain countries, especially P.R. China, make the immigrant investor route an impractical option.
There is no existing treaty between the U.S. and China, so ML utilized Grenada’s CBI program whereby he was able to secure a passport. Working with a professional network including business plan writers and accountants, Green and Spiegel was able to put together a comprehensive E-2 application package that was submitted for adjudication before the U.S. consulate in Guangzhou, China. Shortly after submission, ML received his E-2 visa, enabling him to actively manage his company and provide valuable educational opportunities to American children.
