“美國經濟一直以來都受益於移民企業家的貢獻,從緬街到矽谷。”利昂·羅德里格斯總監說。 “這個提案,敲定時,將會幫助我們的經濟發展,通過擴張那些有條件在美國創造工作機會,吸引投資和製造收益的外籍企業家的移民選項。”


這個規定將允許國土安全部對啟動實體的企業家使用它已存在的法定自由裁定的假釋權。在這條規定下,國土安全部可能根據案例基礎,假釋合格的新的企業的企業家。

  • 對新公司有顯著的股權(至少15%)以及在運營管理中是個有效的、核心的角色;
  • 新公司在美國成立,成立時間需在過去三年以內;
  • 新公司有大量的和可顯示的業務發展和創造工作的潛力,需以下證明:
    • 收到顯著的資金投資(至少$345,000)。投資者必須是合格的,有投資成功的記錄;
    • 收到顯著的獎金或是補助(至少$100,000),可以是來自聯邦政府機構或是地方政府機構;或者
    • 如有其他可靠的,令人信服的證據證明新公司有迅速發展和創造工作的大量潛能,需部分滿足以上一個或是兩個條件。

在這個規定下,企業家可能會被給予一開始最高兩年的停留時間,監督和發展他們在美國的新公司。若是企業家和他的新公司能持續提供顯著的公共利益,如證明資金投資,利潤或工作的創造的確大量增加,那麼 隨後會被考慮再假釋(最高再三年)的請求。


聯邦紀事的法規制定提案公告將邀請公眾評論,限期45天,在那之後移民局將處理收到的評論。在公佈法制規定提案的公告情況下,提案並沒有生效。當最終規定被公佈在聯邦記事上,它將會在一個指定的日期裡生效。

USCIS Proposes Rule to Welcome International Entrepreneurs

WASHINGTON—U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is proposing a new rule, which would allow certain international entrepreneurs to be considered for parole (temporary permission to be in the United States) so that they may start or scale their businesses here in the United States.


Read the advance version of the notice of proposed rule-making:

https://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/USCIS/Laws/Articles/FR_2016-20663_793250_OFR.pdf.


Once the notice of proposed rule-making is published in the Federal Register, the public will have 45 days from the date of publication to comment. To submit comments, follow the instructions in the notice.

“America’s economy has long benefited from the contributions of immigrant entrepreneurs, from Main Street to Silicon Valley,” said Director León Rodríguez. “This proposed rule, when finalized, will help our economy grow by expanding immigration options for foreign entrepreneurs who meet certain criteria for creating jobs, attracting investment and generating revenue in the U.S.”


The proposed rule would allow the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to use its existing discretionary statutory parole authority for entrepreneurs of startup entities whose stay in the United States would provide a significant public benefit through the substantial and demonstrated potential for rapid business growth and job creation. Under this proposed rule, DHS may parole, on a case-by-case basis, eligible entrepreneurs of startup enterprises:

  • Who have a significant ownership interest in the startup (at least 15 percent) and have an active and central role to its operations;
  • Whose startup was formed in the United States within the past three years; and
  • Whose startup has substantial and demonstrated potential for rapid business growth and job creation, as evidenced by:
    • Receiving significant investment of capital (at least $345,000) from certain qualified U.S. investors with established records of successful investments;
    • Receiving significant awards or grants (at least $100,000) from certain federal, state or local government entities; or
    • Partially satisfying one or both of the above criteria in addition to other reliable and compelling evidence of the startup entity’s substantial potential for rapid growth and job creation.

Under the proposed rule, entrepreneurs may be granted an initial stay of up to two years to oversee and grow their startup entity in the United States. A subsequent request for re-parole (for up to three additional years) would be considered only if the entrepreneur and the startup entity continue to provide a significant public benefit as evidenced by substantial increases in capital investment, revenue or job creation.


The notice of proposed rule-making in the Federal Register invites public comment for 45 days, after which USCIS will address the comments received. The proposed rule does not take effect with the publication of the notice of proposed rule-making. It will take effect on the date indicated in the final rule when a final rule is published in the Federal Register.
