E-2 Visa Success Story: Launching a U.S. Animation Studio

At Berardi Immigration Law, we assist clients in achieving their business goals in the U.S. through strategic immigration pathways. Recently, we successfully helped a client establish a production company specializing in high-quality animated shows. Here’s a look at our collaborative journey.

Consultation and Business Formation

Our client approached us with the idea of starting an animation studio in the U.S. With their extensive experience in media and a clear vision for the future, we discussed the requirements for an E-2 Treaty Investor Visa. Subsequently, our client formed a U.S. company and made a substantial investment in its startup, covering expenses like office rent, equipment, and professional fees.

Visa Application & Strategy

Once the company was operational, we prepared and submitted an E-2 visa application to the U.S. Consulate in Toronto. The application detailed the client’s investment, their comprehensive business plan, and goals to generate substantial revenue and provide employment opportunities in the U.S.

Visa Interview & Approval

The process culminated in an in-person interview where our client presented their business model and objectives. Their preparation and clear business strategy led to the approval of a five-year E-2 visa.

Registration & Future Opportunities

Following visa approval, the client’s company was registered as an E visa business under the Canada E visa program, enabling them to sponsor additional Canadian citizens for E-2 visas and support further company growth.

This project highlights how careful planning and understanding of immigration law can result in successful business establishment in the U.S. Our client now operates a thriving animation production company, contributing creatively and economically to the industry.
