E-2 Treaty Investor

E-2 Treaty Investor

E-2 Treaty Investor status requires an appropriate treaty between the United States and the foreign national’s country.  The visa is used by foreign nationals who are developing or directing an enterprise in which they have invested or actively in the process of investing a “substantial” amount of capital.  E-2 visa holders are given five-year visas and admitted for two year periods at a time.  E-2 status can be renewed indefinitely.

Some points to remember about the investment:

1.  Investment means placing capital, including funds and other assets at risk in the commercial sense with the objective of generating a profit.

2.  The treaty investor must be in possession of and have control over the capital invested or being invested.

3.  The capital must be subject to partial or total loss if investment fortunes reverse.

4.  The investment capital must be the investor’s unsecured personal business capital or capital secured by personal assets.

5.  Capital in the process of being invested or that has been invested must be irrevocably committed to the enterprise.
