E-2 Investor Visa

The E-2 is essentially a visa for entrepreneurs who want to come to the U.S. to open and operate a business. The regulations refer to it as a "Treaty Investor Visa" and this simply means that there must be a treaty between your country and the U.S. that allows you to apply for the E-2. As mentioned above, China, India, Russia and Brazil are a few of the larger countries not eligible.

Additionally, the E-2 does not lead directly to permanent residency; however, you can extend the E-2 visa indefinitely, as there is no cap on duration. While some investors may see this as a limitation, there are many investors who do not have the immediate objective of permanent residency. Even so, there are still permanent residency options for those investors who change their minds and wish to seek a green card on E-2 status.
