E2 Visa

The E-2 Visa is a non-immigration treaty investor visa designed for foreigners who want to invest capital in a U.S. business. This will allow investors to manage and develop a business while  residing and working in the United States.  To be eligible for an E2 visa, the investor must be a citizen of a country that has a trade and commerce treaty with the United States.

Application requirements

1. Nationality: The applicant must be a national of the country that has a trade and trade and commerce treaty with the United States.

2. Investment: The applicant must have invested a substantial amount of capital in the United States or be in the process of making such an investment.

3. Business feasibility: The investment should be in a commercial enterprise that actively produces goods or services.

4. Financial commitment: It should be sufficient to demonstrate the investors’ commitment to the business’ success and cover its development and operational expenses.

5. Control and Ownership: Applicants must either own at least 50% of the business or have operational control through managerial positions or other corporate mechanisms.

6. Job Creation: Ideally, the investment should result in the creation or preservation of jobs for American workers.

7. Intent to depart: Applicants must be willing to leave the United States when their E-2 visa status expires. However, as long as your business continues to meet the requirements, you can renew your E-2 visa indefinitely.
