CLE = “The Proposed Immigrant Significant Public Benefit Entrepreneur Parole Rule: Who Can Benefit?”

Categories: Uncategorized

On August 31, 2016, the US Department of Homeland Security published a proposed regulation for public comment to permit “parole” status for certain immigrant entrepreneurs involved with start up ventures who can demonstrate financial backing or government grants, and who can demonstrate that they will “provide a significant public benefit through the substantial and demonstrated potential for rapid business growth and job creation” in the United States.  This CLE will cover the proposed requirements.  We will discuss who might benefit or need parole compared to some of the other business visa categories, and what types of investors and grantors would be interested in supporting businesses where the applicant has a 10-15% stake at least in the business.  See
