HEP workshop : Visas : employment, entrepreneurs, extending your stay in the US


This workshop is intended to inform you on the different visa non-immigrant and immigrant categories which may be of interest to you if you wish to become a principal visa holder instead of a dependent (through an investment) or wish to pursue a green card based on your own merits and eventually naturalize. The workshop will also address important areas to keep in mind in terms of immigration compliance if you hire an employee.


This educational workshop is open to all, with a content tailored towards the needs of spouses of expatriates. 


This workshop will be on Friday November 16th 2018 from 9:30am to 11:30am.


  • Could my entrepreneurial activities allow me to obtain an E-2 or E-1 treaty visa?
  • What if I am separating or divorcing my spouse (important timing considerations, Violence Against Women Act -VAWA- applications)?
  • Can I self-petition for a green card (EB-1, EB-2 National Interest Waiver category, Labor Certification)?
  • Should I, can I, naturalize?
  • What is Form I-9 and why should I care?
