E-2 Visa for Treaty Investors
Texas E-2 Visa Attorney
An E-2 visa is designed for investors who want to invest a substantial amount of capital into a U.S. business. This may be the right type of visa for you if you want to invest in a U.S. company, you want to develop and direct your investment, and you’re from a country with which the U.S. maintains a treaty of commerce and navigation.
What is an E-2 Visa?
E-2 nonimmigrant classification allows a person from a treaty country (see the following section for a current list of these countries) to come to the United States when investing money in a U.S. business. While there’s no dollar amount attached to this immigration status, the amount must be “substantial.”
Some others may also be eligible for this status, such as certain employees of an E-2 nonimmigrant or a qualifying organization. If you’re not sure whether you’d qualify, you may want to call a Houston or Dallas business immigration attorney for guidance.
