E1 and E2 Visas for Treaty Traders and Investors

If you are interested in working or investing in the U.S, the E visa category might be an option for you and your family. The E-1 and E-2 visas are for foreign traders or investors to do business in the U.S. The nationals must be from countries that maintains a treaty of commerce and navigation or international trade agreement with the United States.

What are the differences between E-1 and E-2 Visas?

Both E-1 and E-2 visas require the applicant to be a national of a treaty country. However, the E-1 visa is available only to treaty traders or businessmen, whereas the E-2 visa is intended for treaty investors.

The E-1 visa allows nationals of treaty countries to enter the U.S. solely to develop and direct the operation of an business in which he or she has invested, or is in the process of investing a substantial amount of capital.

Similarly, the E-2 visa allows nationals of treaty countries to enter the United States to invest a sum of money in the United States in order to start a business or services, or to take over a business already in operation.

Neither type of E1 and E2 visas provide a pathway of citizenship but their spouses and children can live and study in the U.S. for as long as the E visa is valid.
