The E-2 Treaty Investor visa is an ideal solution for a wide variety of businesses who have made substantial investment into development of a US business, from very large multinational corporations to individual “mom & pop” investors. Those who wish to go to the US to invest in and develop an American business may use the E-2 visa.
The E-2 Treaty Investor may be a foreign company or an individual owner or group of owners of a company investing in the development of a new US enterprise or an individual or a group of individuals purchasing an existing US business.
The E-2 Treaty Investor visa is available to nationals whose country has a qualifying treaty of friendship, commerce and navigation or a bilateral investment treaty with the United States. See the US Department of State website for a list of the treaty countries.
