Estimate of Value
Business valuation done right takes preparation and thought. Business value is really an expected price the business would sell for. The real price may vary quite a bit depending on who determines the business value.

Because of the unique complexities of investing in an existing U.S. business, it is highly advisable to seek competent legal advice when an immigrant buyer looks at the types of business investment that may qualify for a Visa.
Temporary Investors Visa – E2 Visa
The E-2 visa is popularly known as the “Temporary Green Card”. There is no upper limit to the visa term and therefore extensions and visa renewals can be granted on a limitless number of occasions, provided that the qualifying investment is still in existence and all other conditions for the E-2 visa are still being satisfied. This visa allows foreigners who have made substantial investments in the United States to relocate to the United States in order to develop and direct the business operation established by their investments.
Permanent Investors Visa – EB5 Investor Permanent Visa
The EB-5 permanent visa was created by legislation enacted in 1990. This visa is set aside for investors who invest a specific minimum amount of capital in a commercial enterprise. This permanent visa category is allotted 10,000 annual visas. The investment amount required is usually either $500,000 or $1 million U.S. Dollars.
In order to increase interest in the existing immigrant investor category, Congress created an EB-5 Regional Center Program. The most important feature of the law is that it permits one to invest in a pre-approved “Regional Center”. Regional Centers are approved by the U.S. government. All Regional Centers were established for the promotion of economic growth, including increased export sales, improved regional productivity, job creation, or increased domestic capital investment.
