THE TREATY INVESTOR VISA
The E-2 visa, or the treaty investor visa, is a non-immigrant visa that allows an individual to live in the United States for a limited amount of time. The individual applying for an E-2 visa must invest money in an American company, work at that same company during their stay, and be from a country that has a national treaty with the United States. The treaty investor visa can last up to five years and be extended an unlimited amount of times. Read on to learn more about the E-2 visa and contact the immigration law team at Zohar Law PLLC in NYC when you are ready to apply.
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THE E-2 TREATY INVESTOR VISA:
- You must invest in an American company who sponsors your visa
- You must work at this same company during your stay in America
- You must be from a company that has a national treaty with the United States
- You can remain in the US for up to five years, but may extend your visa for a lengthier stay
One of the many types of visas we can help you apply for is the E-2 visa. The E-2 visa is a non-immigrant visa, which means you are looking to stay in the country for a short amount of time instead of a lengthier stay. The E-2 visa allows you to do business with a treaty country where you’ll be investing a substantial amount of capital into a United States business. For example, if you’re from the United Kingdom and you want to invest some money into an American company, then you’re able to do that when you apply for the E-2 visa. Keep in mind that the E-2 is a treaty investor visa, not a green card visa. This means that it is a temporary visa, i.e. a nonimmigrant visa, as opposed to a more permanent one, which would be a green card. Additionally, an E-2 visa doesn’t require any minimum of money, so you can invest $100 or $1,000,000 into the American company you want to support.
KEY COMPONENTS OF E-2 VISA
There are some important key components of the E-2 visa to keep in mind. One of those key components is that a treaty investor and specific employees are able to legally work in the United States for a business where the investment has been made by the investor as long as the country has a national treaty with the United States. Another key component of the E-2 visa is that the investor is only allowed to work for the business that sponsored the E-2. This means that if the business is self-owned, you can work for the business with the E-2 visa only if the business sponsored the visa. Lastly, these visas can last up to five years with an unlimited amount of extensions with members of the family able to enter and stay in the United States for up to two years.
