What is the E-2 Visa?
The E-2 visa allows nationals of certain treaty countries to invest in a U.S. business and work for that business. The investor must have at least 50% ownership of the business. In some cases, even a startup founder can provide the seed money to start their company and qualify for the E-2.
No minimum investment
The amount of the investment varies depending on the business. The capital investment should be proportional to the business.
Qualified investors for the E-2 may apply for unlimited extensions. The initial period of stay depends on your nationality. The period of stay ranges from a few months up to five years, with an option to renew the E-2 in two-year increments.
Do you need to transfer an employee to the U.S. quickly? The E-2 is eligible for premium processing. Premium processing guarantees a decision on the E-2 petition in 15 days.
