Ian E. Scott to sit on E-1 Trader and E-2 Investor Visa Panel at the AILA 2020 Annual Conference

By January 13, 2020December 11th, 2020News
Ian E. Scott has been selected to sit on a panel to share knowledge on E-1 Trader visas and E-2 investor visas with other immigration attorneys.  The AILA annual conference is attended by thousands of immigration lawyers and will be held this year in San Diego, California.  The panel will cover  Consular Nuances in Processing E-1 and E-2 Visa Applications in the Era of the Government’s policy of Buy American Hire American (BAHA).
In the wake of increasing limitations imposed by the government on visa options for investors and entrepreneurs, the E-1 and E-2  visas have taken on new importance.  My fellow panelists and I will highlight some of the procedural nuances of various U.S. consulates and discuss strategies for increasing the chances of E-1 and E-2 visa approvals.  Some specific topics include:
  • Is It Too Early for an E-2 entity to Be Considered Active? What does real and operating mean in the E-2 context?
  • What is required for E-2 Employees?  What does Executive, Supervisory, and Essential Employees mean?
  • Intent to Depart in the Face of a Pending Immigrant Visa Petition
  • Documenting E-1 Exchange of Goods or Services and E-2 Investment
  • Demystifying Special Consular Programs: Company Registration and “Secret” Lists
  • How to Successfully Navigate Document and Page Requirements/Limitations
We are thrilled that Ian E. Scott was selected to be on the panel and look forward to sharing knowledge during the conference.
