(For U.S. Businesses) Visa Franchise simplifies the process for entrepreneurs to reside legally in the U.S.  They help their clients find the business that might be the best fit for their clients considering E-2 Visas.  Franchises time after time prove to be the best option for most clients, who prioritize business longevity and consistency over short-term profits.

Visa Franchise understands each entrepreneur’s investment goals, desired location, and industries of interest, among a variety of important factors, in order to find the best U.S. business opportunities for the E2 Visa Investor and their family. Additionally, Visa Franchise coordinates with their client’s immigration and corporate attorneys to ensure their U.S. immigration and investment objectives are met.
