About E-2 Visas
E-2 nonimmigrant visas are granted to eligible citizens of countries that have existing treaty agreements with the United States. In order to qualify for an E-2 visa, foreign nationals must make a substantial investment in a new or existing U.S. business.
Also called the treaty investor visa, the E-2 visa provides entrepreneurs with the opportunity to see their U.S. business dream come true. Investors must provide a business plan and show that they are placing their personal investment dollars at risk in this U.S. enterprise. There is no required investment amount. Each investment will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis depending on the type of business and financial projections outlined in the business plan.
Spouses and children of E-2 visa holders are eligible to come to the U.S. with the primary investor and can also apply for work authorization once they enter the U.S.
If you are interested in obtaining an E-2 visa, our firm can help by analyzing the sum of your investment and determine if an existing company investment may qualify. We are happy to work with you to determine the best visa options for you and your business goals.
