An E2 visa also known as a temporary working visa is available for treaty investors and also certain employees belonging to qualifying organizations. They can go the United States and invest capital in a US business.
In order to get the E2 visa, the applicant must first make a substantial investment of funds and/or assets with the main intention to generate a certain profit and ensuring successful operation of the business.
This visa is only available to nationals of countries that the United States maintains a treaty of commerce, friendship and navigation or similar arrangement. (You can find the list in different official websites that generate all the necessary info related to immigration processes)
In addition, after verifying if the candidate’s country belongs to this list, the treaty investor must invest a substantial amount of capital in a commercial enterprise in the United States with the main intention to develop and direct it.
Every investment made in a non-profit enterprise does not meet this requirement. A substantial capital is considered the one that is in a relation to the total cost of purchasing or establishing the enterprise. It must also be sufficient to ensure the venture’s successful operation. The business must also employ workers from the United States and should not solely benefit the investor and their family.
