E-2 Treaty Investor Visa

E-2 Treaty Investor Visa

The E-2 Investor Visa allows an individual to enter and work inside of the United States based on an investment he or she will be controlling, while inside the United States. This visa must generally be renewed every two years, but there is no limit to how many times one can renew. The investment must be ``substantial.``

The E-2 visa allows businesspeople from certain countries to work in the U.S. for a business in which they invest.

The investor or employer must be a person having the nationality of the treaty country, sufficient evidence of which is a passport granted by that country. The investor must also prove that he/she has other sources of revenue to sustain him and his family while the investment is consolidated.

The E-2 visa is a nonimmigrant visa, meaning it is temporary, while green cards are permanent. Moreover, a green card through investment requires a dollar investment of $500,000 or more, while an E-2 visa has no dollar minimum set in law. Family members of the E visa holder are permitted to enter the United States with the visa holder. Included in this category is the spouse of the visa holder, as well as minor unmarried children under the age of 21.
