Visabot, which began by helping people apply for the kinds of visas startup founders typically seek, can now help you apply for a green card, COO Andrey Zinoviev announced today.
“We created our own immigration AI so our success rate grows as the bot learns. what you need to do is answer are you a us citizen other thing you should know and the bot will use this info to generate the whole package for you all you have to do is file it with us immigration services,” Zinoviev said.
Visabot has helped 70,000 people with visa applications or immigration services, he said.
Zinoviev spoke at MB 2017, a gathering of startups and tech companies in the AI and bot industries. Hosted by VentureBeat, the gathering, now in its 10th year, is being held July 11-12 in San Francisco.
Visabot first launched last fall shortly after the election of Donald Trump and steadily added new features. In February the bot added a service to assist young immigrants who qualify for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, also known as “dreamers.”
The DACA portion of Visabot was created by cofounders Goldman and Andrey Zinoviev, along with the Stanford Center for Legal Informatics and a team of engineers Visabot works with in Russia.
Earlier this year the company joined the 500 Startups accelerator program.
Visabot is one in a series of bots made to handle government interactions in a conversational way. DoNotPay bot has helped residents of New York, Seattle, London, and other cities fight parking tickets, while others like Casetext’s assistant CARA helps lawyers conduct legal research.
