Following the example of officials in cities like Miami, the City Council of Tampa recently voted to set up a committee to explore the possibilities of offering government-issued business visas. In exchange for investing into job-creating projects, foreign investors can be granted temporary visas and eventually permanent resident status under current immigration law. As cities apply for “regional center” status, investment opportunities are made available for local businesses that can build international interest and lower their risk of investment.
Whether you are a foreign investor or Florida business, Boyer Law Firm is equipped to handle the needs of both international and local clients alike.
