Last week, Greenberg Traurig EB-5 attorney Ali Brodie presented to students at Columbia University in New York on the topic of “Post-Graduate Immigration Options with a Focus on the USCIS EB-5 Visa Program.” EB-5 team members Sylvia Sobczyk and Joanna Jiang also attended the seminar. The lecture attracted a number of foreign students interested in learning about the various non-immigrant visa and immigrant visa options – with a focus on the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program – allowing them to remain in the United States post-graduation.
Program highlights included a discussion on options for transitioning from the F-1 visa to other non-immigrant work authorized visas including the H-1B, O-1, E-2 and L-1 visas. Additionally, Ali discussed the various employment-based immigrant visa categories including EB-1, EB-2, EB-3 and EB-5. Attendees learned about the various non-immigrant and immigrant visa categories from the student perspective.
