Entrepreneurial Visa Options

It is very much possible to hold a managerial position of a company you helped establish with a H1-B visa. On August 2, 2011, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano and USCIS announced many immigration initiatives designed to boost the economy. The most notable one included a policy shift to allow a H1-B visa holder to have a majority or even 100% stake in his or her own company, including as a sole employee, as long as he or she can demonstrate that the company has the right to control the entrepreneur's employment. Some examples include preferred shareholders or a separate Board of Directors that control the terms and conditions of the entrepreneur's employment.
