What Is The First Step?
It is key to start by understanding your unique set of circumstances and your goals in order to produce a highly detailed and customized plan as we are guided by the philosophy that no two clients are the same. Our highly tailored projects are the consequence of a meticulous process that will leverage on your businesses’ strengths and are key to a successful outcome. This proprietary process gets started with a questionnaire.
What Are Your Rates?
At Visa Business Plans, we never use templates. Every visa business plan is custom-made. As such, we cannot give a rate until we have evaluated a client’s unique case. Our competitive flat fee is based on your attorney’s requirements, the expected turnaround time, additional financial projections, etc.
What Is Your Turnaround Time?
Our typical turnaround time is three weeks, though for an additional fee, we can produce a polished business plan in as little as three business days. Please contact our office for details.
Can You Guarantee That I Will Obtain the Business Visa?
The granting of a U.S. business visa is entirely in the hands of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, so we can make no such guarantee. What we can guarantee is that we will provide a consummately professional and persuasive visa business plan that meets USCIS guidelines and visa adjudication standards.
