Immigration Proposes New Rules for International Entrepreneurs
On August 30, 2016 the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) proposed some new guidelines to permit certain international entrepreneurs to be considered for temporary permission to enter this country, with the intention of creating or developing their business in the U.S.
The purpose of this temporary permission would increase and enhance entrepreneurship and job creation in the U.S. for individuals who want to start up an entity which would provide public benefit through their potential for rapid growth and job creation. This parole authority would provide an initial stay of up to 2 years, with the possibility of an additional 3 year extension, giving the applicant time to oversee and grow the new entity in the U.S.
Foreign entrepreneurs are a sector of considerable interest to USCIS; they generate employment and wealth and as entrepreneurs they want to succeed.
The Proposed International Entrepreneur Rule as it has been named, published a notice in the Federal Register, inviting the public to submit comments on the amended regulations proposed by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The public will have 45 days from August 30, 2016 to comment on this proposed rule but it will not take effect until the final rule is published in the Federal Register.
