Second Treaty Investor Visa with Waiver of Inadmissibility GrantedPublished: Jun 11, 2010 7:00 am
Our client is a Canadian citizen. He is a 50% owner of a small business in the United States. Unfortunately, he is inadmissible to the United States for life as a result of an entry fraud in 1989. He is also inadmissible for a period of 10 years as a result of his unlawful presence.
In order to be admitted to the United States to manage and direct his business investment, we had to satisfy all of the requirements of a treaty investor visa under the NAFTA, but also obtain a waiver of his grounds of inadmissibility. We were able to satisfy both the U. S. Consulate General in Toronto, and U. S. Customs and Border Protection, and an E-2 Treaty Investor Visa along with a Nonimmigrant Waiver of Inadmissibility was issued to him valid for a period of one year.
We renewed his visa and waiver application, which has now been approved for a period of five years. Our client has been readmitted to the United States to continue the management of his business.
