How Does Tin Drum Support our E2 Investor Visa Candidates?
However, it can be challenging to get to the U.S. There are many types of visas issued, but not all apply to citizens of all countries. What’s more, there are dozens of documents to sign or fill and fees to pay.
However, you can simplify the process by applying for an E2 visa and investing in Tin Drum Asian Kitchen as a Franchise Owner.
With Tin Drum, you can live your entrepreneurial dream in the U.S. as an Asian food Franchise Owner, make incredible returns on your investment, and give yourself and your family the life of success you’ve always wanted.
An E2 Visa Allows You to Live in America and Invest Legally in A U.S. Business
The most obvious advantage of owning a Tin Drum Asian Kitchen franchise with an E2 visa is that you can run a business legally in the U.S. Additionally, you get at least part-ownership of the company, which adds to your net worth.
However, when applying for your E2 visa to start your franchise business, you should play an essential role in the venture. Before granting your visa, your local U.S. embassy must be satisfied that you own at least 50% of the business or that you can exercise significant control over it through a managerial role.
As a Tin Drum Franchise Owner on an E2 visa, you maintain your visa status two years after approval. Even when your visa expires, you may request an extension as many times as you like without restriction. Effectively, you may live and work in the U.S. indefinitely.
Tin Drum Asian Kitchen Offers the Support You Need to Start Your Business
If you are starting a business for the first time or are not familiar with business regulations in the U.S., entrepreneurship can be intimidating. Especially if you were to begin your Asian food franchise business from scratch to gain an E2 visa, creating a business plan and managing all the paperwork can be overwhelming.
Fortunately, as a Tin Drum Franchise Owner, you can expect to get significant support and guidance from our team to ensure that you succeed. With business planning, hiring, management, and staff training, video resources, and your Franchise Business Consultant, Tin Drum Asian Kitchen is here for you every step of the way.
Significant Potential Returns for A Low Investment in A Proven Concept
One of the main advantages of coming to the U.S. on an E2 visa is its flexible terms, particularly for investors. The requirements for an E2 visa are significantly less stringent than those established for other visas. For a start, the U.S. government doesn’t specify the minimum investment amount you need to apply for your E2 visa.
Even with limited funding, you have a better chance of gaining entry into the U.S. On the other hand, if you apply for an EB5 visa, you would have to invest a minimum of $900,000 in qualifying.
Tin Drum franchises feature a simple layout, streamlined construction, and essential equipment so that you can start your business at an affordable $400,800, unlike typical restaurant concepts that can cost up to $2,000,000 to start.
Your Family Can Live in The U.S. With E2 Dependent Visas
One of the main reasons people come to the U.S. is to improve the lives of their families and secure better education opportunities for their children.
As a Tin Drum Franchise Owner, your spouse can travel to the U.S. with you to help you start and run your new business. Your spouse could apply for an employment authorization document or temporary work permit to allow them to work for your company. They could also use the authorization to start a new business while you build your franchise.
What’s more, when you move to the U.S. on an E2 investor visa, you can send your children to any school you like, without restriction.
How To Apply for an E2 Visa
You can obtain an E2 visa and start your own Asian food franchise business in the United States as long as you satisfy two main criteria that the U.S. government looks for in applicants: economic impact (job creation) and investment. However, you need to understand the steps required to satisfy these requirements.
Here’s how to apply for your E2 visa:
- Contact your immigration attorney: Preparing and submitting your E2 visa documents is a tricky process. Contacting an immigration attorney will help you better understand your legal obligations.
- Prepare your business plan: Among the required documentation for opening your franchise business on a U.S. E2 visa is a business plan. The business plan will show us – in detail – what your goals are, how you will achieve your goals, and how much money you plan to invest.
- Transfer your funds: You must transfer funds to the U.S when we approve your Tin Drum franchise business. The money stays in escrow until the approval of your E2 visa application.
Apply for your E2 visa: After signing a contract with us and transferring your funds, you may apply for an E2 visa through your local U.S. embassy. Your immigration attorney will guide you through the steps you need to take to ensure that you submit everything in order.
