In German, the marital status is no longer of concern for addressing a person (cf. Fräulein, which is the equivalent of Miss). You’ll typically only use Herr and Frau, even if you know that they are/aren’t married. The English translations would be Mr/Mr. (for Herr) and Ms/Ms. (for Frau). So in your case, you should write: Dear Ms [Lastname]

The USCIS website says that acceptable activities on B-1 visa include "Participating in short-term training" and "Consulting with business associates", among others. What you described should be fine. If, on the other hand, you wanted them to do some of the work while in the US, that's when it could be a problem.

A can-I-work question was asked of Sylvia Gwin, an immigration attorney in Olympia Washington. She responded: No work at all: no part-time work, or internship whether full-time or part-time is allowed for F-2 visa holders. F-2 family members may not work and may not attend school (except child under certain conditions). Several lawyers (in the comments to ...

Re-entering is fine, and quite common. Previously, Indian tourist visas for all nationals briefly prevented re-entry within two months; however, this has now been repealed for all except a few countries that India doesn't have great relations with (Afghanistan, China, Iran, Pakistan, Iraq, Sudan). Indian multiple-entry business visas have never had this ...

LLC will not make things easier for you in any way whatsoever. LLC can be treated as one of those in the US: Disregarded entity - I.e.: from the IRS perspective the LLC doesn't even exist. You're liable for all the taxes regardless of the legal entity you're operating through. You have the benefit of the limited liability (but not very limited, since you're ...

Founding businesses is a legally regulated topic. Consult with an actual lawyer, rather than fully relying on information from the internet. In Switzerland, as in most countries, you cannot do business under a tourist visa (this applies even if there is a visa waiver program in place). You therefore have two options: Either you obtain a residency and a ...

I have no personal experience with this but you can find some details here. In principle, you should be asked to show that your business is viable and will generate enough income for you. You also need to show that it will obey all applicable laws, that you have enough money to start it and a place to run the business from (e.g. if it's a shop, you can't ...

To be honest, in case you don't have any business related expenses you can't claim anything there. You can be able to claim part of your apartment rent if you register one or more rooms as home office. Also, you may be able to claim your internet and phone bills, in case you can prove that you used them only for work, but that's about it.

You can't work self-employed in Switzerland as long as you don't have a settlement permit. You'd probably need a permit C. As a rule, third-country nationals are not authorised to work in Switzerland on a self-employed basis until they have obtained a settlement permit. Exceptions to this rule may be made, for instance, for third-country nationals who are ...

A US LLC isn't really that useful in your situation. It's (usually) a "flow-through" entity, which means it's not (normally) taxed itself, the income flows through to the owner(s) (partners) and is taxed where they are resident. In your case, that means your income is still taxed in Germany, not the US. In other words, an LLC (in the most common form) is ...

I would suggest finding an accountant (CPA) that is familiar with cross border tax issues as there are double taxation treaties between Germany and US in play as well. Nevada's no personal income tax only means that you as an individual (and in case of Nevada same applies to corporations) don't pay any tax on income (profits) earned in the state of Nevada ...

Switzerland is a highly diverse country given its small size. The three main language regions (German/French/Italian) are culturally oriented toward their same-language neighbors, so a fad in Germany might not even be known to the French-speaking population of Switzerland. Furthermore, there is a noticeable cultural divide between cities and the countryside;...

First of all, you only have one status in the US at a time. Even if you travel to the US on a B1/B2 visa, you will still be admitted on either B1 status or B2 status. If you enter the US on B1 status for your conference, you do not need to apply for Change of Status to B2 status to travel for personal purposes inside the US for the remainder of your period ...

I think you are going about this wrong. The point of a Registered Agent for a company is that they are the person designated to receive legal communications for the company within the state of registration. A company must have one to be legal. They do not have to be the owner or manager, and often aren't. You have to provide both a Registered Agent and a ...

I don't know witch kind of Visa you have on your passport, but you need a permit to be a resident in CH to open a company there, otherwise you need to find a business partner with a permanent resident permit in CH or with the CH nationality.

A visa is permission to enter a country, nothing more. Each time you enter you will be given a stamp that tells you the date when you must leave. You can leave any time before or on that date. In this case, it sounds like you get a 180-day stay each time you enter, so leaving and re-entering will get you a 180-day stay. Usually a visa is good for one entry,...

Negotiating deals and attending meetings are both permitted under the standard visitor visa. As long as your partner doesn't want to stay in the UK for more than six months at a time, or to spend more than half of his time in the UK, that's the visa he should apply for.

Generally speaking, it is not possible to apply directly for a residence permit or long-stay visa within Belgium if you entered Belgium on a short-stay visa (i.e. a Schengen type C visa). Instead, you must do that from your current place of residence. There are a few exceptions but they do not apply to your current situation. Furthermore, you current visa ...
