  • Can a startup sponsor a green card in the United States?

    Posted by Christian on September 28, 2023 at 12:14 am

    A startup can sponsor a green card in the United States, provided it meets the necessary regulatory requirements and financial stability criteria. Like any other company, a startup must demonstrate its genuine need for the foreign worker’s skills and ensure it can pay the prevailing wage. However, startups may face additional scrutiny due to their typically volatile nature. As with any immigration matter, it’s essential to consult with an immigration attorney to understand the nuances and ensure compliance with the process.

    Labor Certification: In most cases, the first step is to obtain a labor certification from the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). This certification is designed to demonstrate that there are no qualified U.S. workers available for the position. However, if the job falls under the National Interest Waiver (NIW) category, you may be able to bypass this step.
