E2, Treaty Investors
E-2 investor visas allow foreign investors to enter the U.S. to direct/develop a business enterprise in which the foreign investor has invested a substantial amount of capital. Foreign investors must be citizens of a country with which the U.S. has a treaty of commerce in order to qualify to obtain an E-2 visa. Although there is no specific dollar amount required, according to immigration laws, the investment must be “substantial”. Once obtained, the E-2 visa is initially valid for two or more years and may be extended indefinitely with permission.
