What is an E-2 Investor Visa? What are the requirements for an E-2 Investor Visa?
E-2 Treaty Investor visas are for citizens of certain countries wherein the applicant is coming to the United States to develop & direct the operations of an enterprise in which the applicant has invested a substantial amount of capital.
The purpose of this visa is to enhance or facilitate economic and commercial interaction between the United States and the treaty country. Citizens of these countries may qualify for an E-2 visa if they meet the following other requirements:
Yes, spouse and children may qualify for E-2 Dependent Visas to travel with or accompany to join the principal E-2 Visa holder. The dependents may have a different nationality than the principal. In addition, the E-2 spouse may apply for employment authorization and is not limited to working at the E-2 enterprise.
How long is the visa issued for?
An E-2 visa may be issued for 5 years, but depending on country of nationality, it may be issued for as short as 3 months. Upon entry on an E-2 visa, individuals are allowed a maximum stay of two years regardless of how long the visa is valid for.
