What “Attention to Detail” Means to Visa Business Plans

It isn’t trite or disingenuous to say we truly care about our clients, and we’ll prove it.

Our care for our clients shows most in our precise attention to detail. This is what sets us apart from competitors in creating customized, comprehensive immigration business plans. To us, attention to detail isn’t just a good selling point– it’s fundamental for our clients to receive their visa approvals. We know how serious the stakes are, and we don’t take our role in the process lightly. That’s why attention to detail is woven inextricably into every step of our internal operations.

But any business can tell you it cares, so how do we show it?

When we say “attention to detail,” this is what we mean:

1. Every aspect of our process is oriented around results. We take into consideration what the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and the Department of State (U.S. consulates) want to see by staying abreast of the latest developments in American laws and regulations. Each business plan we draft is crafted with the express goal of giving the client the best chance of success.

2. We run our projects against a 77-point quality check which is the result of 13+ years of experience, documenting trends, and helping attorneys respond to complex Requests for Evidence (RFEs). The USCIS is not always totally transparent, and there are unwritten rules. As an individual, there’s no way to learn them all, but as a business that has created thousands of business plans, we’ve learned what works (and what doesn’t).

3. We ensure our business plans are internally consistent. A business plan that details a company vehicle for transporting employees and equipment to job sites, but fails to include a driver in the personnel plan, has created a paradox that delegitimizes the entire venture. Visa Business Plans meticulously checks every sentence to catch issues like this. We frame the narrative so that details don’t just work in isolation but in the totality of your business plan.

4. Our business plans are credible and realistic. Before developing financial projections for our clients, our analysts and writers meticulously research market salaries, industry trends, and realistic benchmarks from reputable publications. Projections of high profits may look good, but those with business sense can tell when they are based on fantasy rather than evidence. We make sure our clients’ business plans always fall into the latter category.

5. We catch and eliminate inconsistencies. Inconsistencies are fundamental errors where the business plan doesn’t match up, and they can break a visa petition. For example, if you refer to an employee as a Project Manager in one section, but then as the Operations Manager in another, you’ve created a confusing inconsistency. Sometimes, even small typos can be the difference between a client achieving their immigration plans or ending up with an RFE that sets back their goals by months.

6. Visa Business Plans’ staff is trained to identify aspects of any business model that could be challenged by authorities based on regulations and adjudication standards. For example, a client applying for an L-1A visa and opening a gas station may think a business plan that shows them supervising a staff of ten cashiers means they are considered an executive or manager. But with only cashiers on staff, it’s likely the client will be involved in day-to-day operations, such as marketing or administrative duties. An executive or manager in the L-1A context oversees daily operations and must not actively participate in them. This distinction, and others like it, may not be widely known, even by experienced professionals. With Visa Business Plans, clients don’t have to worry about learning every unwritten rule of the USCIS. We’ve already done that for you.

7. We believe in giving back. With our management made up almost entirely of immigrants, we know how stressful the process of getting a visa can be. We learned first-hand that obtaining a visa to live and work in the U.S. requires help from compassionate people that can offer sound guidance. Our company culture fosters genuine concern for our clients because it’s our way of paying it forward.

8. We hire top talent. Visa Business Plans prioritizes hiring high-quality professionals over saving a few dollars on the payroll. Our team is full of individuals hand-picked for their talent, professional background, growth mindset, and well-rounded experience. They are the heart of our company’s mission. We believe that if you pay peanuts, you get monkeys, so Visa Business Plans ensures every staff member is compensated adequately to deliver the level of service our clients deserve.

9. We don’t sacrifice our integrity for the sake of growth. While some companies can afford to play fast and loose, delivering a faulty business plan can result in severe real-life consequences for our clients. Valuable investments can be lost, and months or years of time can be wasted, causing potentially irreparable damage to careers. That’s why Visa Business Plans will never cut corners to increase production.

10. We’re not afraid to go the extra mile to help our clients secure their visa approval. We won’t lie; sometimes, creating the perfect business plan takes more work than we predicted at the outset. But Visa Business Plans doesn’t deliver anything half-hearted. We leave no stone unturned as long as it gets our clients closer to realizing their dreams of receiving a U.S. visa.

The Visa Business Plans difference is this: we deliver best-in-industry standards and authentic care for customers with a willingness to go beyond the call of duty to raise the chances of visa approvals for our clients.
