E2 Visa – Mary From Australia
I am a Restaurateur from Brisbane, Australia. I have been in hospitality and specifically owned my own establishment for over 24 years. Having visited New York, I was in awe of the industry there and couldn’t wait to be a part of it in some way. Continued below……..
What made me want to move to America was New York City. Particularly because it seems to be the Capital City of the World and specifically of my industry. I wanted to give this city and this country a shot and see if I could challenge myself to the degree, which would be required.
I decided to choose this Law Firm because Chris Ingram was recommended to me after my original Migration Lawyer left the firm and the company restructure meant they could no longer personally assist any clients. The success rates were very high and though we had some issues with the time frame, overall from start to finish were very efficient. I ended up applying for the E2 Investment Treaty Visa, as it was a business investment I was making in the US.
The process from start to finish was under 6 months, and though the requirements were exhaustive there were no significant “bumps” with the immigration process. The best part of working them was the personal support and assistance with the law firm and Celeste was amazing and directly contributed to the success of my application. Their on-line case management system was also very efficient and great to see what I was up to and what was still required.
After all the work that went into the application, I was attending the interview at the US Embassy when advised that my application was approved – my overwhelming emotion was one of relief, followed immediately by gratitude.
I love the pace of this city, and I love that we can communicate in English whilst still enjoying a new culture.
Do miss Australia’s Beaches already and the summer and associated sports such as cricket. Most of all though I miss my family, though with communication technology we can be a lot closer than the miles. If you are committed and are prepared to put some work in with your application requirements, then I strongly recommend you take the step. Be patient and be organized and with these guys helping you – you will succeed.
E2 Visa Success Story – Mary, a hospitality and recruitment specialist from Australia decided that she wanted to take on the Big Apple where there is not only a huge demand for hospitality, recruitment services and event planning, but there is also a range of markets to choose from. For example, some companies do small functions while others require very lavish arrangements to be made for their functions. Many of our clients see opportunities or gaps in the American market thus coming to America gives them a chance to really go for their American Dream in a big way.
