Three year H-1B visa approved for sole employee-entrepreneur; USCIS makes good on promise to encourage entrepreneurship

In August 2011, we posted a link and some background related to the current administration’s efforts to attract and retain high-skill entrepreneurs. Specifically, a USCIS press release dated 8/2/2011 confirmed an intention to use current immigration law [including H-1B visas and National Interest Waivers] to fuel the nation’s economy and stimulate investment, by attracting foreign entrepreneurial talent who can create jobs, form start-up companies, and invest in areas of high unemployment.

We wish our clients the best of luck and thank USCIS for a job well done! We are currently working on a number of exciting “start-up” cases, where we intend to rely on USCIS’ recent guidance, including H-1Bs and EB-2 I-140 National Interest Waivers (green card) petitions, and hope today’s approval is a sign that USCIS will continue to help stimulate our economy through existing visa categories.
