Business Plans & Professional Plans for Immigration

The USCIS commonly request a business plan, a professional plan, or both when issuing RFEs (Request For Evidence RFE) in response to employment-based visa petitions.  ​


A immigration professional plan provides an overview of a petitioner's background and endeavor as it relates to the visa they are applying for.  An immigration business plan describes how a business will be launched and the role played by the portioner within the business. ​

Business Plans for Immigration

A Business Plan from ProfVal includes much of the content within a professional plan, but also describes your business using a proprietary approach aligned to the requirements of the visa you are applying for. 


Sections typically  include: executive summary, company description, company ownership, description of the product or services, a proprietary market analysis, an analysis of the market segments addressed, analysis of the national importance of your endeavor, the company's competitive edge, marketing summary, management summary (with an emphasis on your contributions), a discussion of your credentials related to the EB-2, financial projections (including a proforma financial statement and an impact assessment).


A business plan can either include a pro forma statement that we create, which requires a separate onboarding form (about 2 hours).  Some clients may choose to save money by creating their own financial statement based on a rubric like this one which we modified to create our pro forma approach.
