Temporary Nonimmigrant Work Visas
Our firm provides the E-2 investor with the professional guidance required to qualify. One of the benefits of this visa is that an E-2 investor’s spouse and young children are eligible as well. A non-immigrant visa grants you temporary stay in the United States. When your visa expires, you must leave the United States unless you have applied for Legal Permanent Residency.
What is the E-2 Nonimmigrant Visa?
The E-2 visa is granted to a foreign investor starting a business in the United States. However, the E-2 visa is dependent upon a treaty with another country. As such, it is only available to citizens of approximately 80 countries.
Contact us for more information regarding a country’s eligibility regarding an E-2 visa. In some cases, you may be able to obtain a second citizenship in another country which can then be used to obtain an E-2 visa.
Our global immigration law firm is prepared to represent you if you are interested in starting a business or invest in the United States.
What are the qualifications for the E-2 visa?
- Citizenship in an E-2 treaty country with the U.S.
- Ownership of at least 50% of the E-2 investment business
- You must be actively involved in the direction and development of the business
- You must make a substantial investment in the United States
- You must be in control of your investment funds
