On August 26, 201 USCIS released proposed regulations that will grant temporary status or "parole" to certain to a particular foreign investors, researchers and entrepreneurs of startup entities. Under the program, a qualifying entrepreneur may receive parole for any two-year period to supervise and also be their startup, and may be eligible for renewal based on the achievements of the start-up.
The entrepreneur parole program was initially announced in November 2014 included in President Obama�s planned executive actions to stimulate innovation and support U.S. high-skill businesses and workers. After the notice of proposed rulemaking is published from the Federal Register, the public can have 45 days through the date of publication to comment.
Under the proposed rule the Department of Homeland Security will grant parole, on a case-by-case basis, to eligible applicants who can show a capital investment of minimum $345,000 from US investors with established records of successful investments or receive $100,000+ in awards or grant funding from federal, state or local economic development agencies. Partially satisfying either of the aforementioned criteria is possible if compelling evidence can be so long as your application would provide a tremendous public benefit. Start-ups have to be less than three years old when the initial parole application is filed.
Additionally, in order to qualify beneath the proposed rule, applicants would be forced to own 15% from the start-up and also have an �active and central role� available which is �well-positioned�to conserve the entity with growth.�
The entrepreneurs is going to be authorized to be effective �incident to status� without having to make an application for employment authorization. Employment is just authorized with the start-up company which is the subject in the application. Entrepreneurs' dependents (spouses and minor children) may also be eligible for a parole status. Spouses have entitlement to work, they must apply for a jobs authorization document.
