When it comes time to write an immigration business plan, entrepreneurs and investors are tempted to do it themselves.
After all, with experience writing business plans and knowing their business better than anyone else, this temptation seems logical.
But it is not.
In the most critical aspects of our lives, we seek the help of professionals: doctors to treat our health, teachers to educate our children, and mechanics to repair our cars.
Crafting your immigration business plan should be no different, given how high the stakes are and the potential cost of failure.
Here are five reasons you should not write your own immigration business plan.
1. There are vital differences between immigration business plans and other types of business plans.
Immigration business plans are unlike any other type of business plan. These plans are written for a different audience, contain unique content, are structured and present data differently, include distinct information from other business plans, need to follow immigration laws and regulations, and are reviewed by a separate set of standards.
In order to provide your project with the best chance of success, you need to rely on the expertise of someone well-versed in all of these differences.
2. A successful immigration business plan requires expertise.
Just as you rely on a doctor to assist in your well-being or a mechanic to keep your automobile in tip-top shape, you must utilize professional expertise to craft your immigration business plan to give it the greatest chance at success.
While you can do certain things to manage your well-being and maintain your car, it's the professionals who can be trusted with the most significant challenges. Experts like us in immigration business plans have the experience and training to most appropriately write a program that will be successful and help you reach your goals.
3. We know the audience and what it is looking for.
Do you know who your audience is and what it is looking for? We certainly do, having crafted more than 6,000 customized immigration business plans for our clients over the past two decades.
Just knowing the audience for immigration business plans is not enough. With our extensive experience, we know how to write for immigration and consular officers to most clearly and effectively lay out all the evidence they are looking for to approve your E-2 visa.
4. We know what needs to be included in immigration business plans.
The information that needs to be included in an immigration business plan differs from the content found in other business plans. If you don’t know what needs to be included in your application, its chances of gaining approval are greatly diminished.
Unlike other plans, depending on the visa category, immigration business plans must include information about the impact on the U.S. economy, a focus on job creation, marginality, and much more. With our vast experience, we know precisely what to include in your immigration business plan to provide it with the best chance of success.
5. We make sure your immigration business plan follows all laws and regulations.
Immigration business plans are unique because they must follow all immigration laws and regulations. Failure to comply with these guidelines is one of the quickest ways to sink your project.
We understand all relevant laws and regulations governing immigration plans and guarantee that our professional plans meet all USCIS and consular guidelines and adjudication standards.
