If you are thinking of applying for immigration status on the basis of starting or expanding a business, congratulations on your decision. Now the work begins.

Starting a business in a new country can be stressful, especially if you have limited knowledge about the business culture or market. When you start planning your business consider that the more details you can put together about how you want to run your business, the better off you will be in terms of your immigration application.

They Said it was Going to be Easy

The easier a company tells you the process will be, the more likely it is that you should be questioning the quality of their product. Having a relatively short phone call to answer a few questions with your business plan developer before they tell you they are ready to write your plan is a red flag. It might make your life easier, but not in the long run: this approach is a sign that their efforts will be minimal, in terms of developing something that reflects the uniqueness of your business and will ultimately reduce your chances of getting approved.

No Guarantees

There are no guarantees in terms of getting your immigration application approved. Any company that tells you otherwise is taking a chance. There is no way anybody can know whether your application is approvable before it is submitted, and even then, immigration authorities are inconsistent in how they adjudicate applications: what may be approved one day may be questioned the next.
