Asked in Immigration Law for Mississippi

Q: Foreign national, CEO and founder of a US 501c3 nonprofit - What are my immigration options other than B1 visa?

Hello guys - I am a young woman from humble beginnings living with a disability since age 2 - who one day was blessed enough to be awarded a prestigious US department of States scholarship. While in the US I founded a nonprofit, that will later help me drive changes in my land. I left the US years ago and been running it with an American friend from a far - been very productive. Running things from a far has however been very challenging and I was wondering if there is type af visa I could apply for that would make thing easier on me (apart from the B1). I am not interested in permanent immigration for am bound to live between my country and the US. Thanks really looking forward to your help

A: There are certain visa options that are different than the B1/B2 visa which would allow you to come to the United States to work with your non-profit, but many have limited circumstances in which they apply. I would consult an attorney who is well versed in these issues to discuss further.
