What is an E-2 Visa? 

An E-2 visa is a temporary, non-immigrant visa that allows foreign nationals to come to the United States to invest in and manage a business. To qualify for an E-2 visa, the applicant must be a citizen of a country that has a treaty of commerce and navigation with the United States.

To obtain an E-2 visa, the applicant must meet the following requirements: 

  1. Investment: The applicant must have made a substantial investment in a business in the United States. The investment must be substantial in relation to the total cost of the business. 
  2. Ownership: The applicant must have at least 50% ownership of the business, or possess operational control through a managerial position or other corporate role. 
  3. Purpose: The business must be an active, for-profit enterprise that provides goods or services.
