Orlando Business and Investor Visa Lawyers

Aggressive, Compassionate & Experienced Advocates

If you plan to travel to the United States for work, you will probably need to apply for a business visa. Most of the time, employees use a B-1 visa for this purpose. Whenever you are dealing with immigration, things can get complicated. An experienced attorney at The Sekou Clarke Law Group can assist you with your application, any appeals, or any complications in the process. We are immigrants working for immigrants. One of our team members even has first-hand experience with immigrating to the United States. This allows us to be compassionate, caring, and client-centered.

Let us be a part of your story. Call (407) 269-8774 to learn more about how our Orlando business visa attorneys can help you.

Restrictions of a B-1 Visa

The U.S. is very specific about the type of “business” that can be conducted while on a B-1 visa. Workers can attend business meetings, go to conferences, purchase goods or materials, interview or hire employees, conduct business relations, service a machine, and more.

However, it is strictly prohibited to travel to the U.S. to help with a family business or start conducting business. In addition, travelers cannot work under the supervision of an American employer, accept paid or unpaid employment, or take work as a professional entertainer or athlete. There are other visas available for these purposes. If your business dealings don't fall under the guidelines of a B-1, apply for an H-1 or L-1 temporary worker visa instead.

The Visa Waiver Program

Did you know that you may not need a visa to enter the U.S. on business? The Visa Waiver Program allows citizens of certain countries to travel to America for less than 90 days visa-free. Travelers can only exercise this privilege if they have not previously violated any terms of immigration (such as overstaying a previous visa).

Some of the countries that currently participate in this program include:

  • Japan
  • United Kingdom
  • Australia
  • Belgium
  • Italy
  • Switzerland
  • Ireland
  • Germany
  • Denmark
  • Greece
  • Chile
  • Spain

Countries involved in the Visa Waiver Program also permit tourism for under 90 days.

Real Reviews from
Real Clients

  • A few weeks later I was released and now I'm adjusting my status to become a Permanent resident.

    “I was detained by ICE few months ago and was placed in removal proceedings. My family and I reached out to several law firms and they all rejected my case because of the charges that I had. Subsequently with my last hope of having any lawyer representation my family contacted Mr. Sekou Clarke and he immediately said Yes!!! A few weeks later I was released and now I'm adjusting my status to become a Permanent resident. Thanks to Mr. Clarke and his remarkable team”

    Desmond J.

  • Mr Clarke represented me in a Immigration case. I must say he did a fantastic job.

    “I would definitely recommend anyone looking for a good immigration attorney to consider him. ”

    Claude

  • He listened to me, even if he was going in to court and being so caring of nature he would understand and this was the most important trait as he felt more like a friend than the clean cut suave lawyer I hired.

    “Saying thank you does not do him justice however I'm eternally grateful and if your ever in need of professional help, specifically immigration, then do not hesitate to contact Mr Clarke.”

    Kerry

  • He was extremely knowledgeable, without his help, I know i would still be going through the process and waiting.

    “There are not enough words to thank him for helping me obtain something I truly didn't think I could on my own.”

    Jesenia

  • I would recommend him to anyone in Central Florida.

    “He kept me informed of every step that was taken to successfully complete my divorce.”
