Federal District Court Reinstates New International Entrepreneur Rule
Last month, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that it is taking steps to implement the International Entrepreneur Rule (IER), in accordance with a recent court decision striking down government attempts to delay implementation.
The IER was published during the Obama administration to provide international entrepreneurs a new avenue to apply for parole, enter the US, and use American investments to establish and grow start-up businesses. Parole is discretionary and is granted on a case-by-case basis. It does not confer immigrant or non-immigrant visa status. The IER grants temporary permission to live and work in the US for 30 months, renewable for an additional 30 months.
