My Own Experience in Applying for an E-2 Visa to the US

(Below is a transcription of this video)

Hi. This is Michael Niren, Immigration Lawyer and founder of Today I want to share with you my own personal experience in applying for a visa. I applied for a US work visa, a work visa for work in the United States. It’s called an E-2 visa. And the reason I did that is because we’re going to be expanding our business, Visa Place, in the United States.

Applying for an E-2 Visa to the US

We help a lot of Americans get visas to Canada. And we have a lot of Canadians coming to America, as well as globally. So, there’s an opportunity to grow our business, Visa Place, in the United States, and as a result, I needed a visa, a work visa in the US to help grow the business. But I can tell you, the experience was quite interesting being on the other side, being on the client side, gathering the documents, preparing the application, and presenting it to a Visa Officer for review. That was quite a stressful experience, and it gave me a sense of empathy for how our clients feel and what they go through in getting a visa. And fortunate that our lead Visa Lawyer, Fadi Minawi, our US Visa Lawyer, Fadi Minawi, and his team, did a great job in preparing the application. And I’m happy to say that my application was successful as are many of our applications. So, it’s just something I wanted to share with you that going through the process gave me some additional insight in how our clients feel and what’s involved in the often very stressful process of applying for a visa.

Completely smooth process. Rania did a great job in my Canada work permit. The team is absolutely competent and knowledgeable. Alicea was so amazing and was able to answer any of my questions immediately. I had peace of mind throughout the application. I would recommend them to other friends looking for assistance with their applications.

I highly recommend VisaPlace to anyone seeking help with navigating the legal minefield that is Permanent Residency. As someone who is very easily stressed, Lauren & Mariana have saved me a lot of sleepless nights. They are fast, efficient, reliable and honest and I will be telling any of my friends to use them for immigration. Thanks to them, my future with my husband in Canada is bright
