About E Visas for the United States
Did you know that there are work visas available for people who want to invest in or start a business in the United States? People who want to work in trade or investment in the United States can apply for an E-visa.
Understanding E Visas for the United States
E visas are for traders and investors. The E-1 visa is for Traders, and the E-2 visa is for Investors.
If you want to obtain an E-2 visa, you must make a substantial investment in the Untied States and there are strict conditions on this investment. They include that you demonstrate these funds are available for this investment, that the investment is in an actual business that is active and not just buying a home, that 50 per cent of the business will be owned by a foreign national whose country has a treaty with the United States and that the investment creates profit for more than just the foreign national.
Who Can Apply for an E-visa?
Whether or not you can apply for an E-visa depends on the country in which you hold citizenship. Countries must have signed a treaty with the United States for the visas, and a list of countries who have treaties signed with the United States can be found here.
New countries are added to the list all of the time.
