E2 Visa Applications for Canadians

(Below is a transcription of this video)

Hi. My name is Michael Niren, I’m an immigration lawyer and founder of visaplace.com. This video is about E-2 visas for Canadians. A lot of
Canadian citizens are moving to the U.S. to start businesses or establish a business there, and one of the main visas that is available for them is called an E-2 visa. We have a U.S. visa team that handles all types of U.S.
visas, including E2 visas.

Requirements for E2 Visa Applications for Canadians

Now, E-2 visas require a lot of paperwork. Essentially, applicants who apply for an E-2 have to make a substantial investment in the U.S. in a business and have to show the U.S. Consulate, the visa officers there, that they have a viable business plan, a reason for going to the U.S., and that this business will be growing. There’s a lot of paperwork, as I said. There are supporting documents you have to show. You should be convincing an immigration officer that you have the skills and background that’s going to make your business successful in the U.S.

Are You Interested in Applying For the E2 Visa?

E2 visas generally are valid for five years, and they can be extended. In some cases, applicants apply for a green card, not directly from an E2 visa, but on the basis of their E2 visa. It’s complicated, but we’ve processed cases like that. So if you are interested in moving to the United States as a businessperson, give us a call or go to our website at www.visaplace.com, and we can discuss your plans for getting an E2 visa. Thank you, and have a great day.

Contact our experienced team today, and let us help you apply for your E2 visa.

Customer Reviews

After initially having a very bad experience with one of their immigration consultants and after posting a negative review on Google I was immediately contacted by the Managing Director to reschedule another consultation to try and provide me with a more positive experience. I have been impressed by their attention to customer service as a result of this and I appreciate the initiative that they have taken to turn my negative experience into a positive one. My second consultation was a great experience, I spoke with Brian about my Canadian PR application and he was able to give me great advice and was extremely helpful. He answered all my questions and explained the process of how to apply and was very patient with me which I really appreciate.

Great law firm with great staff. My lawyer Rania did a great job for my Canadian work permit and my daughters study permit. You are great in your work. And my Para Legal officer Alicea, you are just amazing. They did not rest until my job was promptly and properly done. Always there to answer my calls, reply my emails promptly. She tried her best and the results were amazing. I recommend visa place if you need the best immigration job. Many thanks to Rania and Alicea.
