What Do I Need To Know About The E-2 Visa Business Plan?
What is the E-2 Visa?
The E-2 nonimmigrant classification allows a national of a treaty country (a country with which the United States maintains a treaty of commerce and navigation) to be admitted to the United States when investing a substantial amount of capital in a U.S. business. Certain employees of such a person or of a qualifying organization may also be eligible for this classification.
What benefits do I receive as an E-2 Visa Investor?
As an E-2 Visa Investor, you will be allowed to enter and remain in the United States to oversee the operation of the enterprise. E-2 Visas are valid for five years, but may be renewed in two-year increments as long as the enterprise continues to qualify under the E-2 regulations promulgated by the U.S. government.
What requirements do I have to meet to qualify for an E-2 Investor Visa?
To qualify for an E-2 Visa as a foreign investor, you must demonstrate that:
- You are from one of the treaty countries;
- The amount of your investment in the U.S. business enterprise is “substantial”. The amount invested must be sufficient to ensure that the business will be successful. While the law does not necessarily require you to meet a specific amount of investment, certain embassies or consulates do require the investment to meet a certain amount (Canada, for example, generally requires at least $100,000);
- The operation must be an actual, operating one, rather than a speculative one;
- The funds you plan to commit to the business must actually be at risk, as opposed to just promised or sitting in a bank account from which you can withdraw at any time. Real property owned by the investor will not qualify;
- The investment may not be “marginal”, meaning it must produce revenue in addition to just a living for the investor and his or her family;
- The investor must be coming to the U.S. to develop and direct the enterprise, and must either be the principal investor or employed in a supervisory, executive, or highly specialized category. The investor is not supposed to engage in everyday labor and tasks.
What documentation do I need to submit when applying for an E-2 Investment Visa?
E-2 Investor Visa applications generally require a substantial amount of supporting documentation to demonstrate that the investor and the investment enterprise meet the requirements stated above.
