E-2 Investor Visa​
Application Process

The US E-2 Treaty Investor Visa is only available to a limited amount of foreign nationals. These countries include Canada, Australia, European countries, and others such as Turkey, Grenada, and Montenegro. The applicant must have a business to run in the US. The minimum investment is not set in the laws and regulation, but in practice, investments below $200,000 are routinely refused unless they have other significant benefits such as job creation.

With the US E-2 treaty visa you can get all the benefits of accessing the US market, without necessarily triggering the tax implications that face US citizen or Green Card holders. Those that wish to make the US their permanent home can change their status from E-2 to other immigrant visas.
