As Part of President Biden’s Executive Order 14012, Restoring Faith in Our Legal Immigration Systems and Strengthening Integration and Inclusion Efforts for New Americans, The Department of Homeland Security is withdrawing a 2018 notice that proposed to remove the International Entrepreneur program from DHS regulations.
According to the release by the USCIS, The program first introduced in 2017, “will remain a viable program for foreign entrepreneurs to create and develop start-up entities with high growth potential in the United States. The program will help to strengthen and grow our nation’s economy through increased capital spending, innovation, and job creation.”
The Current Acting Director og the USCIS Tracey Renaud stated that: “Immigrants in the United States have a long history of entrepreneurship, hard work, and creativity, and their contributions to this nation are incredibly valuable. The International Entrepreneur parole program goes hand-in-hand with our nation’s spirit of welcoming entrepreneurship and USCIS encourages those who are eligible to take advantage of the program.”
Under the program, parole may be granted to up to 3 entrepreneurs per start-up entity, as well as their spouses and children. Entrepreneurs are eligible to work only for their start-up business, Their spouses (not children) may apply for EAD in the United States. Additional information on eligibility and how to apply is available on the International Entrepreneur Parole page.
