Our unparalleled immigration experience.

Anu Gupta founded Immigration Desk in 1999 after moving to Silicon Valley from New York, focusing her efforts solely on immigration services. Her practice grew with her immensely popular immigration advice column in the India Post, one of the highest circulation Indian newspapers in the United States. She wrote the legal column as a free community service for people with immigration questions. When time permitted, she also wrote similar guest columns for several other publications. She then collaborated with (ThinkIndia), one of India’s largest search engine/portal, to design its immigration channel. Her popular immigration Q&A section on Rediff/ThinkIndia’s immigration channel received well over 100,000 hits each week.

Present in Silicon Valley during the tech boom, Anu helped many companies plan their immigrant workforce and grow their businesses. Anu knew that the ability to attract and retain foreign workers can affect a technology employer’s profit margins, and she understood the time constraints and financial costs. She also understood the pressures employers faced when work visa quotas ran out and employees were needed urgently.

To help her clients, Anu honed her skill in creating workable immigration solutions quickly and cost-effectively, and she helped employers develop long-term plans to hire and retain workers. Understanding that when visa numbers are limited and winning approval on every single visa counts, Anu vigorously defended every petition – winning approval on over 99% of the petitions filed in the past 2 decades.

Based on her problem-solving skills, her ability to offer creative solutions and her inability to accept “no” when it was her case, Anu quickly built a reputation of being a highly regarded immigration adviser to business owners in high-growth industries. Besides the hi-tech industry, she has worked with notable technology gurus and innovators, Palo Alto/Sand Hill venture capitalists, think-tank groups, college professors, entrepreneurs and foreign investors. She filed visas for extraordinary scientists and Olympic athletes amongst others.

When the Department of Labor started auditing corporations and ICE crackdowns became common during the economic meltdown, Anu skillfully handled immigration audits and fraud investigations for her corporate clients. She positioned Immigration Desk to help businesses establish best practices and set up in-house procedures for self-auditing and compliance with immigration regulations, LCA audits and mandatory document maintenance.

Over the years, Anu expanded her practice to partnerships with offices in Moscow, Toronto, Manila and New Delhi. These foreign offices were designed to promote immigration from these countries, to grow U.S. investments and to aid visa applicants applying for visas from these posts.

Anu truly believes that your success is Immigration Desk's success. To this day, Immigration Desk still handles immigration matters for many of the companies they've helped guide over the past decades.

Our Mission

We aim to be the strategic partner for your continued business growth by providing high-quality immigration services through uncompromising commitment and superior ethical standards. To succeed at our mission, we take each case personally. We use all of our resources, collective experiences, creative minds, and the client-specific facts in each case to strategize and navigate the immigration system. We are, in other words, facilitators of your ultimate business, professional and/or personal goals through successful immigration. We measure our success by how well we exceed your expectations, each and every time.

Our Vision

Our vision is simple: To help our client businesses and individual clients build the dynamic professional communities for tomorrow, today. We envision a global community coming together locally to achieve great things.

Our vision is to help you create your true global village, where you can hire talent internationally but work locally to create a cohesive global business; and where our individual clients can cross borders seamlessly and efficiently, so they can own businesses and assets worldwide and work and live, with their families, where they choose to be. It is our pleasure to help you get here: One visa at a time.

Since the Industrial Revolution, first transportation, then communication, and now technologies have rapidly shrunk our world. Boundary lines on a map no longer limit businesses or individuals. Businesses are no longer local, but move where human capital, resources and markets are. Individuals move to different countries to accept their dream jobs. We have entered the era of nomads, of living our lives, and of earning our living unbound by geography. Unfortunately, the laws of our land are still playing catch up to this new reality. As your strategic immigration partner, it is our privilege to facilitate your business success by helping you bring in the right international talent to your local office. And by helping our individual clients to move to the country of choice, by helping them get to their destination through work, investment or family immigration.

A necessity to achieving this vision is to create workflows so that businesses can move employees and work cross borders efficiently, at anticipated costs and within expected timelines. And when talented professionals don’t have to think about the hassle of obtaining visas and of having to leave their loved-ones behind, but know they can accept their dream jobs, and move to live in a different country with their families, without being constrained by a country’s immigration laws. We aim to be this strategic alliance for you - One visa at a time.

Our aim is to be your strategic resource in key nations worldwide, so we can present you with a trustworthy partner that can help you move your workforce seamlessly across borders, and for our individual clients to migrate into different parts of the world without constraints.

We have strategically chosen to partner with immigration and corporate attorneys, and with tax accountants in key growth areas of the world where professional business is moving: in the United States; HiTech city in India; in Toronto, Canada; and aim to have offices to support your needs in London, UK; in Shanghai, China; in Adelaide Australia and in Venezuela and South Africa within the next few years.

Let our decades of experience, our sterling reputation and our dedication to you make the process seamless, the timeline controlled, at costs that are reasonable. Let us make the immigration process smooth for you, even when it is not.

Our Promise

We will approach your immigration needs with the respect and seriousness they deserve, leveraging our decades of success to provide a clear path forward. We will provide best-in-class service to you, for each case, every time.

We Care

We believe that we can only create a truly global village if we are a part of our adopted country, but at the same time, retain our individual immigrant identities. Toward this aim, we believe in being active, charitable members of both communities. As a team of attorneys, we routinely work with area organizations to provide pro bono support to immigrants in need, in addition to helping neighbors. Some of the work we do:

  • Provide pro bono advice and service to women’s shelters when there is need of immigration attorneys
  • Provide free legal advice and guidance to parents traveling from overseas to obtain medical treatment for their ill children.
  • Hire special-needs teens from the local high school and our community to help build their self-esteem and teach them usable job skills.
  • Volunteer and donate to several local Autism organizations and events.
  • Drive to drop off food for families during COVID when Newton’s local food bank needed volunteers.
  • Help Goodwill and Red Cross with collecting donations for children, especially around the holiday season.
