E-2 Visa Applications – Case Study

Client’s Issue or Problem

Client was denied a visa through the consulate on 2 occasions when he had another firm assist him with the E-2 applications. The Client had approved statuses in the US for E-2 status given that he had applied from within the US when he was a visitor to change his status to the E-2.

However, Client was unaware that leaving the US would effectually end his E-2 status and Client was subsequently denied entry to the US despite his approval notice indicating that he had more than a year left on his E-2 status.

Our Solution (Type of Visa/Action Recommended, What We Did)

We realized that the only way that this Client’s problem can be resolved, was to face the problem head-on and apply for the E-2 through the Consulate that refused him twice before. The Client still had an active business in the US and was anxious to get back to it. We looked at the previous applications that were denied, and assessed what their weak points were.

We came up with a plan of attack to overcome the weak points, and submitted a new application to the consulate and prepared the Client as to what the Consular Officer may ask at the interview

Outcome

The Client was successful in attaining an E-2 visa for a five (5) year period. We are grateful that he has since referred two clients to our firm.

Customer Reviews

After initially having a very bad experience with one of their immigration consultants and after posting a negative review on Google I was immediately contacted by the Managing Director to reschedule another consultation to try and provide me with a more positive experience. I have been impressed by their attention to customer service as a result of this and I appreciate the initiative that they have taken to turn my negative experience into a positive one. My second consultation was a great experience, I spoke with Brian about my Canadian PR application and he was able to give me great advice and was extremely helpful. He answered all my questions and explained the process of how to apply and was very patient with me which I really appreciate.

Great law firm with great staff. My lawyer Rania did a great job for my Canadian work permit and my daughters study permit. You are great in your work. And my Para Legal officer Alicea, you are just amazing. They did not rest until my job was promptly and properly done. Always there to answer my calls, reply my emails promptly. She tried her best and the results were amazing. I recommend visa place if you need the best immigration job. Many thanks to Rania and Alicea.
