With over 30 years of experience, Mr. C. Steven Horn practices exclusively in the area of business visas to the U.S. for primarily Japanese multinational corporate entities, Japanese non-profit organizations, and high net-worth individuals. Mr. Horn has obtained special visas for Japanese sports leagues, entertainers, pop stars, and singers. He also obtained artist visas for The Kabuki Theater, Bunraku, and other traditional Japanese artists appearing at the Japan Society and for groups filming TV programs in the U.S. for airing over national TV stations in Japan. 

There has been a dramatic increase in business visa scrutiny by both the Department of Homeland Security's USCIS in the United States and at the Department of State's Consular Posts (U.S. Embassies and Consulates) abroad. Mr. Horn provides sage guidance, legal analysis, and propriety insights into navigating what has become under the current presidential administration; quagmire at the USCIS even for the most qualified visa applicants and their sponsors. 

His extensive experience with up to date procedures and policies at the American Embassy in Tokyo and American Consulate in Osaka are of particular value in successful visa applications and preparing applicants for in person non immigrant visa interviews.


Mr. Horn details this visa process in his new book, A New Business Visa Guidebook for a New Era of Business Visa Ad junction- the first ever comprehensive and authoritative non immigrant visa guidebook in the Japanese language dealing solely with business visas to the United States.

C. Steven Horn, Esq.

Unprecedented in the history of non-immigrant visa practice, this last year has seen a dramatic increase in business visa scrutiny by both the USCIS in the United States and at U.S. Embassies and Consulates abroad, adversely impacting upon legitimate international businesses’ critical need for essential employees from abroad. Ironically, even major Japanese multinational companies investing billions of dollars (U.S. dollar equivalent) and building manufacturing facilities and plants in the United States and employing thousands of U.S. workers are not immune from this assault. In the current environment, the American Embassy in Tokyo and Consulate in Osaka – Kobe have become much more restrictive in issuing E visas and more frequently denying applications for both middle management and essential employees.


We have heard awful stories within the Japanese community about CEOs and senior executives of major Japanese multinational companies being strongly questioned by American Consuls in Japan, even when revalidating an approved E visa.


A lesser known but highly critical area of concern dealt with in the Visa Guidebook is the possible immigration consequences of corporate reorganization which are common place in today’s global business. The sheer size of M&As often overshadow the serious impact corporate changes can leave on nonimmigrant visa holders which can place such visa holder in “unlawful visa status”.


This Business Visa Guidebook is unique in that it is to our knowledge the only authoritative nonimmigrant visa guidebook in the Japanese language focusing solely upon business visas to the United States. To further assist the Japanese reader, the visa guidebook selectively uses English alongside the Japanese to clarify complex legal concepts and terminology.


Hope this book will be helpful for your organization to combat against this new and unfortunate era of business visa adjudication.
