From E-2 Visa to U.S. Residency: A Success Story in LED Lighting Solutions

From E-2 Visa to U.S. Residency: A Success Story in LED Lighting Solutions

Our client, an innovative entrepreneur in the LED lighting industry, initially entered the U.S. on an E-2 visa. His business offered advanced LED lighting solutions and energy management technologies designed to help businesses reduce energy consumption. This included energy monitoring equipment, air conditioning and refrigeration energy-saving controls, temperature sensors, and intelligent lighting controls.

The Adventure Begins: E-2 Visa Success

Starting with a detailed and realistic E-2 business plan, our client successfully established his business in the U.S., providing a range of cutting-edge energy-saving solutions. His company thrived, generating significant income and demonstrating the viability and growth potential of his business model.

Transitioning to EB-5: A Strategic Move

As the time approached for visa renewal, our client, in collaboration with his immigration attorney, decided to pursue U.S. residency through the EB-5 visa program. Recognizing the success of his initial venture and the desire to expand his opportunities in the U.S., he sought our expertise to transition from E-2 to EB-5.

Crafting the EB-5 Business Plan

Leveraging the foundation of his E-2 business plan, we meticulously crafted a comprehensive EB-5 business plan. This plan showcased the expanded investment and the job creation potential of his business, meeting the EB-5 program requirements. Our detailed analysis and projections highlighted how his company’s growth would contribute significantly to the U.S. economy.

Meeting the EB-5 Investment Threshold

Thanks to the profitability of his LED lighting business, our client was able to increase his investment to meet the EB-5 threshold. This was achieved through reinvesting dividends earned from his company. This included not only the expansion of existing operations but also the introduction of new energy-efficient technologies, further enhancing the appeal and economic impact of his business.

Achieving U.S. Residency

With the combined efforts of his dedicated attorney and our expertly crafted business plan, our client’s EB-5 visa application was approved. Today, he enjoys U.S. residency, continuing to innovate in the energy sector and live a prosperous life with his family in the United States.


Our client’s transition from an E-2 visa holder to a U.S. resident through the EB-5 program is a testament to the power of strategic planning and expert guidance. At Visa Business Plans, we are proud to have played a crucial role in his success, providing the necessary business planning support to help him achieve his American dream.
