I’m so pleased to spend time today with Angie Rupert from Rupert Law Group. Angie’s specialty is as an E-2 Investor Visa Attorney. The E-2 Visa program is for entrepreneurs all over the world that want to start a business here in the United States. E-2 stands for a statute in immigration law. It can be found here under E-2 Treaty Investors.
Angie has combined her legal background, her love of entrepreneurship with business development to make it a perfect fit for herself and her clients.
Angie shares with us how she helps international or potential international clients gain a US presence. These are the first things you need to figure out:
After you know those things, it’s now time to call a lawyer and walk-through how you’re going to get this idea off into a business. This is the process of getting the E2: getting it near operational before you go get the Visa.
If the processes go smoothly, it can take about 3 to 4 months. Some clients can move more quickly. Some it can take longer up to a year. It depends on how quickly the client moves. Once Angie gets the documents together, it takes her about 2-weeks to put the filing together, at which point she then sends them off to the consultant at the country of the client’s origin. The consultant may then take from 4 to 12 weeks to review the documentation. The consultant will then take steps to setup up an interview with the client. The interview will take only 10 to 30 minutes. If approved, it then takes just a week to complete the process and get the Visa.
Angie tells her clients that on average, from the time they sign with her to the time they receive their Visa, it takes about 6 months.
Finally, Angie leaves us with this heartfelt message:
“Wherever you want to be in the United States, I am here to help. And I am honored to help you!” ~ Angie Rupert, Rupert Law Group
