Visa for Indian Startup

Hi All,

I am running a small IT company in India which has 5 employees and now I want to start a branch in USA to grow my business. Can anyone tell me how can I proceed with this and what types of visa I can apply for relocating to USA and start a branch there…

Thanks in advance.

AFAIK, you need to have permanent residency in the US to start a company in the US

Actually one can open a LLC even while on H-1. However, the person needs to have a GC or US citizen on payroll to manage day to day activities of the company.
