In order to encourage the development of a strong, prosperous economic environment, the Canadian government seeks business people with sufficient business experience and the necessary assets. Some of these programs are activated for a duration of time depending on the National requirements.

  1. Canada Business Immigration
  2. USA EB 5
  3. UK Entrepreneur Visa
  4. Australia Business Visa

There are three categories:

Investor Immigrant Visas: aimed at successful senior executives with managerial experience or successful owners or part-owners who have the intention and ability to invest in Canada for a term of 5 years;

Entrepreneur Immigrant Visa: aimed at successful owners or part-owners with significant business experience who have the intention and ability to own and manage a business in Canada, which generates revenues and employment;

Self-Employed Immigrant Visa: aimed at persons with relevant experience in world-class athletics or cultural activities or with farm management experience, who have the intention and ability to become self-employed in Canada;

Investor Immigrant Visas: The Canadian Immigrant Investor Program requires the applicant to make an investment of CDN $800,000. This investment is placed with the Receiver General of Canada. In addition, you must have a net worth of CDN $1.6 million.

Participating provinces then use your investment to create jobs and help their economies grow. Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) will return your investment to you, without interest, in approximately five years, after you have become a permanent resident.

Many potential business immigrants, though able to meet the program's net worth requirements, may have difficulty raising the assets required in a short period of time, or they may not wish to tie up their money for a period of five years while receiving no interest on the transaction. There is an alternative: you may finance your investment. You have the option to receive a loan from a financial institution in Canada for up to 70% of the investment. You may finance your investment. CIC has agreements with a number of financial institutions that can facilitate the financing of your investment.

USA EB-5 visas

The USA EB -5 program is an employment-based program for those who wish to attain the US Green card and establish a business enterprise in the US. The preferred category-the EB-5 visa -is for foreign entrepreneurs who invest at least $1,000,000 USD (or $500,000 under certain circumstances) in a new commercial enterprise which will create at least 10 new jobs for US workers within the first two years. Under the 1990 Immigration Act, Congress has set aside up to 10,000 visas per year for alien investors in new commercial enterprises who create employment for ten individuals.

The total time from application for the approval can take as little as six months.

Groups of investors under the program :

  • Those who invest at least $500,000 in "targeted employment areas" (rural areas or areas experiencing unemployment of at least 150% of the national average rate) and
  • Those who invest $1,000,000 anywhere else. No fewer than 3,000 of the annual allotment of visas must go to targeted employment areas.

Permanent residents who have continuously lived in the USA for at least five years (or three years if a spouse of a US citizen) may obtain US citizenship through a process called naturalization. Naturalization applicants must also demonstrate a basic understanding of English and US government and history (under most circumstances). The USA recognizes dual citizenship and the act of naturalizing will not revoke prior citizenship unless expressly prohibited by the laws of the prior country.

Applying to permanently live and work in the US can be quite daunting for the uninitiated. In some cases it requires up to three different applications with three different government agencies stretched out over several years. However, the experts at AKKAM can help you successfully negotiate this intricate and often byzantine process to get your working visa USA.
