Building Success: How Our Client Established a U.S. Property Management Business with an E-2 Visa

At Berardi Immigration Law, we are dedicated to helping our clients achieve their business dreams in the United States. We are thrilled to share the success story of one of our clients who recently obtained an E-2 visa to establish a property management business in the U.S.

Client’s Vision & Initial Steps

Our client approached us with a clear vision: to open a property management business in the United States. Already owning several properties in the U.S., our client wanted to capitalize on these investments by establishing a U.S. property management company. The goal was not only to rent and manage existing properties but also to build new homes for rent or sale.

Investment & Business Formation

To bring this vision to life, our client formed a company in the U.S. and invested in its startup. The qualifying investment included necessary business startup expenses, construction costs, and land purchases essential for developing the existing portfolio of properties. This strategic investment laid a solid foundation for the new business.

Preparing the E-2 Visa Application

Our team worked closely with the client to prepare and submit an E-2 visa application to the U.S. consulate in Toronto. The application highlighted the client’s comprehensive business plan, detailing the long-term aspirations of achieving significant revenue and hiring U.S. workers. We ensured that every aspect of the business plan demonstrated the potential economic impact and job creation within the U.S.

Successful Visa Interview & Beyond

The client attended an in-person visa interview and was successfully issued a five-year E-2 visa. This visa not only allowed our client to operate the property management business in the U.S. but also paved the way for future expansion.

Expanding Opportunities

In addition to securing the E-2 visa, our client’s U.S. company was registered as an E visa business in the Canada E visa program. This registration allows the U.S. company to sponsor additional Canadian citizens for E-2 visas, facilitating further growth and development.


This success story is a testament to the power of strategic planning and investment. Our client’s determination and our team’s expertise in navigating the E-2 visa process resulted in a thriving business opportunity in the United States. We are proud to have been part of this journey and look forward to seeing the continued success and expansion of our client’s property management business.
