E-1 and E-2 Investor Visas

E-1 Visa

The E-1 visa is for citizens of countries with which the U.S. maintains a Treaty of Friendship, Commerce, and Navigation. E-1 visa applicants come to the U.S. with the plan to develop substantial commerce between the U.S. and country of origin. The visa holder must occupy an executive or supervisory position, or possess essential knowledge and skills for the satisfactory operation of the company.

The initial visa duration is between two and five years and it can be extended indefinitely. The spouse and children of the E-1 visa holder can enter and travel throughout the U.S. and abroad, including studying in the U.S. full-time. Further, the E-1 holder’s spouse can obtain a U.S. work permit.

E-2 Visa

Individuals who want to invest in the U.S. can obtain an E-2 visa if the applicant is a citizen of a country that maintains an Investment Treaty with the United States. The reason for entry should be to develop and direct operations of a company that has or is in the process of making a substantial investment.

The spouse and children of the E-2 visa holder can enter and travel throughout the U.S. and abroad, including studying in the U.S. full-time. Further, the E-1 holder’s spouse can obtain a U.S. work permit.
