E-2 Treaty Investor Visa – A Great Visa Option For Those Who Wish To Start A Small Business In The United States – Top E-2 Visa Questions & Answers

An E-2 Visa is a Visa Classification that is available for foreign nationals who wish to live in the U.S. to develop and direct the operations of a business.  The business can be large or small and an E-2 Visa is a great Visa option for those who want to start a business.  In order to qualify for the Visa, applicants must meet specific requirements and these requirements are outlined in an  article you can access by clicking here. This article focuses on the top E-2 Visa questions asked by our clients.  The answers are short answers to complicated questions and should only be used as a basis for a discussion with a qualified immigration attorney. Here are the top E-2 Visa questions.

1.     Does an E-2 Visa Lead to A Green Card?

No.  An E-2 Visa is a non-immigrant Visa and does NOT lead to a Green Card.  While it does not lead to a green card, it is often approved for a 5-year period and as long as the business is still in operation you can renew the Visa indefinitely.  If you qualify for another green card category (eg. EB-5) you should consult an immigration attorney to explore the best way to apply for the green card.  This can be a tricky area as the temporary intent aspect of the E-2 Visa makes applying for a green card difficult.  See more detail on this in our Article “Does an E-2 Visa Lead to A Green Card” topic by clicking here.

2.     Do I have to hire U.S. employees in Order to Get an E-2 Visa?

There is no required number of U.S. workers that have to be hired to work in the business but usually the business should employ at least some employees in the U.S. as reasonably necessary for the business to operate.  If no workers are hired, the investment may be considered as a business that is set up only to support the E-2 applicant and his/her family. (The legal term for this is “Marginal” and it is not permitted).  You do not have to hire the workers immediately and your 5-year business plan should detail exactly when you plan to hire the employees.  Find out more about marginality and hiring employees in our article “What Does the Marginality Requirement Mean for an E-2 Visa?” by clicking here.

3.     Is an E-2 Visa the Visa where I have to Invest 1 Million dollars ($1,000,000) and hire 10 employees?

No. The E-2 Visa is often confused with an EB-5 Visa. The EB-5 Visa is a completely different Immigrant (Green Card) Visa and you can read more about and EB-5 Visa by clicking here.  In contrast to an EB-5 Visa, an E-2 Visa does not require a specific amount of Investment and does not have a specific number of employees that you have to hire.

4.     Can I get an E-2 Visa with a low amount of Investment? Is there a minimum amount of an Investment?

There is no required Investment dollar amount.  A common myth is that a minimum of $100,000 is the required but Scott Legal, P.C. has obtained approval for investments with as little as $15,000 spent and $35,000 in a bank account as working capital.  If your business is a service business (eg. a consulting business) the investment that is required will be much lower than if your business is a capital-intensive business (eg. car manufacturing plant).  Read more about the differences between an E-2 visa and an EB-5 visa by clicking here.

5.     Can I borrow money to start the business?

Yes. Unlike the EB-5 Visa, borrowing money is fine for this Visa as long as the business is not overly leveraged.  You can also receive a gift.  Find out more about gifts and loans by reading our article “Can an E-2 Investment be from a Gift or Loan?” by clicking here.

6.     Is there a particular type of business that I have to start or buy?

No. Any for profit active business type is fine. (eg. drug store, law firm, consulting agency, car dealership, hair salon, etc.).

7.     Do I have to Make a Business Plan to Get an E-2 Visa?

Yes.  A 5-year business plan is required and the business plan is a key element that immigration officials consider when they review your Visa petition.  To find out more about how to make an effective business plan click here.

8.     Does an Investment in Real-Estate Qualify for an E-2 Visa? Can I buy a Home and get an E-2 Visa?

No.  The E-2 Visa can be obtained by either purchasing an existing business or creating a new business in the United States and the business must be an “active” business.  This excludes passive investments like real-estate or owning stock.  Your business must also make money and as such not-for-profit enterprises are excluded.

9.     Can I bring my family and can they work in the U.S.?

Your husband or wife can get an E-2 visas and are eligible to apply for an “Employment Authorization Document” (referred to as an EAD) to work in the United States after obtaining E-2 status.   He/She can work in any field and this is a significant advantage of an E-2 Visa as many other non-immigrant visas, like a TN Visa and an H-1B Visa, do not allow a spouse to work in the U.S..  See more about the spousal work authorization by clicking here.

10.  Which countries are eligible to get an E-2 Visa?

The E-2 Investor Trader Visa is only to people from the countries that the U.S. has a Treaty with.  Many Western countries are on the list but there are also countries from Africa, Asia and the Middle East on the list.  Israel was just recently added to the list.  A complete list of the countries on the list can be found by reading our Article “Which Countries are Eligible for an E-2 Visa?” by clicking here.

11.  How long does it take to get an E-2 Visa?

An E-2 Visa is a very document intensive petition.  In addition to a number of government forms, the Visa requires the submission of a binder full of documentation that is often quite lengthy.  Once the documentation is prepared, the processing time depends on the processing time at the consulate that is located in the applicant’s country.  This could range from 3 weeks to 3 months (or longer).

12.  How much does it cost?

Legal fees for an E-2 Visa will be $5,000 for most E-2 Visas.  Filing fees usually will not exceed $500.

13.  Do I need a lawyer?

Yes.   Like most Immigration law, the E-2 regulations are complicated and you must demonstrate to immigration officials that you have met all of the legal elements.  In addition, the documentation requirements for an E-2 Visa are quite extensive and a legal brief must be written linking all of the elements of the Statute to your case.

If you are considering an E-2 Visa, contact Scott Legal, P.C..  For more information on this and other immigration Visas click here.  We can also assist you with your business plan and business entity set-up.  You can also call us at 212-223-2964 or email us at info@legalservicesincorporated.com.

    I am a dual Canadian/ Pakistani national currently residing in Lahore Pakistan. I have a Canadian Passport. Am I eligible to apply from the USA embassy in Pakistan? I do not have a Pakistani passport but I am legally resident here on account of my dual nationality. Or do I need to go back to Canada although I am not a resident there as of now.

Please contact us and we can set up a one hour consultation with one of our lawyers. You need a lawyer to review your documents and determine why the application is denied.

      Generally you would have to get the visa again if you left after 3 months. (but if you did not leave the U.S. you would have 2 years) This requires additional explanation and would be happy to do this over a consultation. Kind regards,

Although Israel is not an E-2 treaty country yet (expected very soon), you can use your Georgian passport and process the visa in Israel.

    Hello,

    My partner and I are considering bringing a successful UK franchised company to the US as our own entity (we have obtained a licensing agreement from the UK). I am already in the US and will look to raise investment here. This will likely lead to shares in the company being offered.

    Question 1. My partner and I will be even partners in this venture. If the investor receives shares in exchange for investment capital, my partner and I will own less than 50% each. e.g. 20% to the investor, 40% to myself and 40% to my partner – would this still satisfy the E2 requirements, and could we both obtain E2 status with this setup?

    Question 2. Can the capital obtained come from a US investor?

    Thanks,

    Reply
    • IanScott March 21, 2015 1:05 am

      Thank you for contacting us. The question is not straight forward and requires a fairly detailed explanation. I will give the short answer here though. The U.S. entity must be 50% owned by a member of a treaty country. Once that condition is satisfied, you can look at who can get visas. Visas can either be investor visas or employee visas. If investor visas, each investor must own 50%. If an E-2 investor with one E-2 employee (and you can do this even if the employee owns shares), then you can have a different mix. The control of the investors will also impact this analysis but there is not problem with the investors being U.S. investors. Please contact us if you have any further questions and we can set up a one hour consultation with one of our lawyers. You can contact us at info@legalservicesincorporated.com. Kind regards,

    I am under b1/b2 visa and would like to come USA and like to run a business under e2 visa. as far as I know, I have to show the fund / money to buy and run a business. but it is not easy to transfer money from my country. hence, while i come to USA, can I borrow money from my relatives staying in the USA and use this money officially to apply for e2 visa. thanks.

    I am Canadian I have my E2 Visa since 17 month I have almost 3.5 years left on it .
    I need to know when I enter the USA under this visa do I have 5 years from the day I enter or I really have what is actually on the Visa.
    if so is there anyway to renew it so I can use the full 5 years period.
    also when I renew my I94 do they evaluate the business income & employment or they do it when I renew the visa
    Thanks

      Thank you for contacting us. The visa just governs your ability to enter and each time you enter on E-2 status you have 2 years that will be stamped on your I-94. We are happy to answer additional questions if you would like to set up a consultation with one of our lawyers. Kind regards,

    Sorry for the typos in earlier comment.

    Dear Sir, thanks for providing this information. It is really helpful.
    I’m a Canadian citizen, seriously considering to go for E2 visa in the very near future. Currently I’m in the US on TN status working as management consultant cum data analyst. My background is in consulting, marketing research, data consulting and also in filmmaking. My educational background is both in engineering and in MBA. I have several achievements in my filmmaking career as well (Selections of my short films in prestigious film festivals and some media attention). I want to open a consulting company which can offer consulting services in data management, data processing, data analysis and market research etc. Under the same consulting company, I also want to offer film production/video production services as well. So, my question is, is that possible under E2 visa? I dont see any problem because I have skills and experience in both areas and I can offer that under one consulting/services company. Also, I believe that in some ways both fields are inter-related too (use of software and technical tools). What will be the minimum investment needed for this and how can your firm help me in this? Finally, is it possible to get this done as fast as possible-lets say in 2 months after I decide to go for this route? Thanks so much in advance!

      E-2 Visa holders do not have any restrictions regarding getting mortgages so should be able to get one without a problem. You will have to check with your bank but there is not any general restriction. Citibank for example, would give a person on an E-2 visa a mortgage. Kind regards,

      An E-2 visa is usually multiple entry but it depends on the Country. For example, for Canada it is multiple entry, for Iran it is a single entry. You can check this using the reciprocity schedule published by the State Department.

      E-2 is fine for tourism as I assume you are still in valid E-2 status. If your E-2 status is no longer valid (ie. you do not work for the employer or the company does not exist), you should get another visa.

    If an E-2 visa holder’s business has proven to be marginal, and now the USCIS is asking for data before proceeding to renew his visa, can he present a new business plan for an entirely new venture?

    The old or existing business just did not work.

    But the E-2 investor has another business plan, in a completely unrelated area of business, which is much more promising. In fact they have started making good money on this new venture. Will the USCIS renew his E-2 visa if they find that this new business plan could work?

      Thank you for contacting us. It really depends. The E-2 should not impact the green card but it may be tough to get an E-2 visa issued if you have a green card petition outstanding. It will depend on the nature of the petition. For example, if it is a sibling petition that was filed with a long wait, then the E-2 may still be issued. Please set up a consultation to discuss further. Kind regards,

    I ‘ m from Brazil. I am interested in E2 visa but Brazil do not make part of treaty and not eligible for this visa.

    My mom, has a american citizenship because she married with an american. I know about F3 VISA Third preference, but this kind of visa generally waste 8 years to obtain.

    My question, in this my scenario are there any possibility to immigrate with visa E2, with any sponsorship through my mother ?

    My mom doesnt have funds to prove a sponsorship for me because she is retired.

    My idea is open a Gas Station in Orlando or West Florida – ClearWater, Sarasota, Tampa, etc. for this plan I have an amount of US$ 150.000,00.

    I research about E2 visa and found about Argentina which has a treaty for E2. Argentina is integrant of Mercosul and it is not difficult to obtain a Temporary Residence and DNI. It is sufficient to apply for E2 Visa ?

    I hope hear about any suggestion.

    Thanks in advance.

    Dear Scot,

    I am a British Citizen running my own business for last 14 years in London, thinking of expanding into USA, our business has changed in the recent past due to various policies of the country, therefore, we had to change our business model to suite to our clients all over the world and the right place to offer services from is USA.

    Though, we have considered EB5 initially, but considering the long delays, speculative investment with REGIONAL CENTRES where the principal amount as well as lifting the conditions on GREEN CARD at the end of second year is alarming and can lead to life changing events should we fail to obtain the GREEN CARD, Wondering whether we can go on E2 and establish the business in the meantime my spouse can locally (while we stay in USA) apply for EB5 $ 1 Million Dollar Scheme where we operate our business rather than investing into Regional Schemes. Do we qualify for EB5 in that case and whether we can take the bank loan to cover $ 1 million investment?

      Thank you for contacting us. There is no set time to remain in your home country and you can apply for a B visa once you return. You will have to convince the consular officer that you are no longer running the business and that you plan to return to your home country after the trip.

    Hello,

    Once the e2 visa is granted can I start investing in other businesses to diversify my investments?
    If yes, do they have to be only passive investments or can also be active (only part of my time).

    Thank you.

    I am a british citizen (born in England, 1970) who lives in Guatemala, central america for 14 years. I am married to a guatemalan women and have 5 children, all under 21 years of age (14, 11, 6, 4 & 1); My mother (73) is a US citizen and my sister (40) was born in the USA and has a psycology practice in New York. My father is from Nicaragua so I have also the nicaraguan citizenship.

    I invested $50K in an industrial cleaning equipment from a dallas based company (Stripco Soda Blasting) in April 2014 to develop a business in Guatemala. Due to high altitude, extreme humidity and dew point related technical issues I could never managed to run the equipment efficiently, it just would not work in the central american region.

    I decided that needed to send back my equipment to the USA but the company from which Inbought it would not accept the machine back, therefore I been thinking about starting a “soda blasting service” business in Florida since these equipments work perfectly in US climate, market is already knowledgable about this cleaning technology and stimulated by the amount of companies that offer this service.
    I am currently registering an LLC to comply with tax and legal US requirements but definetly my company would need my execution and management to develop.

    Do you think I will be eligible for an E-2 Visa?

    Let’s say if I make a 40,000 investment to buy 50% of a business. and I would make additional amounts of investments ( 10K ) to Renovate remodel and all that good stuff. Is that considered to be part of the investment from an immigration stand point ?

    Also, If I would apply for the visa and the only mean to support myself is thru a decent paycheck based on the hours that I work ( for now, until the business starts making profits which might take 3-4 years to do so ) , assuming I get pregnant and need to take some extended time off ( maternity before and after the baby delivery which will effect the ” marginal “factor to support my self . How will immigration view this when it comes to renewal of the E2?

    1) Is it possible to do the E2 process under her name although I made most of the earnings ? Would our child and I be able to get papers as well ?

    2) We already have a case at the INS, for family visa, under the F3 category, would we be denied the E2 visa because of it ?

    Thanks

    Hi Ian, I’m from the UK and I’m interested in purchasing an old run down property with some land and running it as a vacation rental business out there. The property I’m looking at is small and there’s currently only one building but there’s 5 acres of land so real potential for growth. I would like to add more cabin style buildings and create a kind of glamping style vacation rental space on the land. The initial property is cheap at about $50,000 but obviously I would spend more fixing it up. I’m wondering if I would qualify for the E2 with this business? I also run a sound healing practice practice and would like to build a small studio where people could come and experience holistic therapies but that would be a bit later down the line. Looking forward to hearing what you think, thanks,

    I’ve been ins the USA with a F1 Visa (Brazilian Passport). However I have a Italian Passport as well.
    Is it possible to change my status from F1 (Brazilian Passport) to E2 (Italian Passport) in the USA? Or I have to change my status in Brazil?

      Thank you for contacting us. You can change from F-1 to E-2 and when you are ready, you could go to either Italy or Brazil to process the actual visa in your passport. We would be happy to set up a one hour consultation with you at your convenience to go over options.

    I am starting the process for E2 visa and my daughter is about to turn 21 in august of this year. While the E2 is in process and she turns 21, would she still be included in the process? Or if the E2 does get approved before August, does she have to enter USA before her birthday?

    I am British Citizen, came in US on E2 visa and invested $126,000 in a franchise business with a US Citizen with a 51% share. Company provides job to 25 people which is gone up to 32 now. And i purchased another Business and I am 100% owner in Las Vegas and invested $160,000, which provides job to another 9 people. I take about $70,000 Salary from both businesses. I got my first extension in 2014. And this year I started another Franchise Business in a partnership in Las Vegas, which provides job to another 8 people and signed a lease for another location which will open in July and provides job to 15 more people. But all my Businesses are not showing profits but also not Losses as well. Will their be any problem in getting extension.

    Hi Ian,

    Me and my husband are planning to enter into franchise agreement and set up a business in the US and exploring E-2 visa requirements. According to FDD the total investment is about $300K, which mostly includes build out cost and will be spent over 6 months. Do you know if we can apply for E-2 in the beginning of this process when we spent, say, only $15K or we have to wait till we spent more considerable amount? Also does your company accept clients from Canada, giving that we probably will be applying in Canada?

    Thank you

      Thank you for contacting us. We regularly process E-2 visas for Canadians at the Consulate in Toronto and would be happy to help you. In fact, the firm was founded on an E-2 visa by a Canadian.

      In order to apply for the E-2 visa, you would have to have the premises set up and it would not be sufficient just to purchase the franchise license. We would be happy to set up a one hour consultation to go over a possible strategy.

    Hi, I have an E2 and I’m an Australian Citizen. I applied with the USCIS here in the US, not with the Embassy in Australia. However, I need to travel to Canada on a business trip. Can I get the E2 visa stamped in Canada? Or will I absolutely have to travel back to Australia to get my E2 visa stamped?

      Thank you for contacting us. To reenter the US you will need an E-2 visa. This is not just a visa stamp but a reapplication. Please note that the USCIS approval does not govern and the consulate will start from scratch. Canada may accept your application but not during the summer. Kind regards,

    Hello,

    I am a Turkish citizen. The company I work for has an office (which acts like a separate entity but both offices have some common shareholders) in the West coast for 2 years. They want to hire me for the US office now. Employers of the US office are under E2 visa. So I was wondering if the E2 visa for employee is a better/easier option for me compared to L1 or H visa.

    Also, can I apply in my country directly or does my employer have to apply from the States? I know that E2 is multi-entry, but once I have the visa , is there any limitation how often one can leave US for travel, either business or tourism, and come back?

    I am currently in Turkey and hold a B1/B2 visa. I have been to the States on tourist/business purposes 3 times before. The last time I legally stayed for 5 months for an extended vacation. Would that be an issue?

    It could be great if you could email me your fee for the entire process if I am to hire you for my application.

    Thank you in advance

    Hello there,

    When renewing an E2 visa, do you have to leave the USA and return to your home country while you wait for your visa to be renewed, or can you stay and renew it in the USA without leaving? Also, what are the requirements for renewing an E2 visa?

    Thanks, Bradley.

    Hello,

    I’ve been reading a lot of info about the E-2 visa but I still don’t get one point: in my specific case, I’d like to open a small new business with my wife (not buying an already existing one), so I understood the best way to get the E-2 approval would be to invest some money in a “irrevocably committed” way, such as a leasing contract, buy some equipment, hire people etc but at the same time I understood I can’t do it with a tourist visa (ESTA), so this is what I don’t get: how can I spend this money and do all these stuff before applying for the E-2 visa? Do I need a B-1 visa?

    I just found out yesterday about the B-1 visa almost by accident, and that would make sense, but at the same time it would be hard to show some strong relationship with my country because, in order to spend some months in the US looking for the right place, before I should leave my job, and my current house is registered at my parent’s name, so I’m quite confused about the best war to proceed.

    I really hope you can help me clarifying this point.

    Thanks a lot for your help guys and regards from Italy!
    Alessandro

    Hello,

    A few months ago I applied and got accepted into a Master program in the United States starting January 2017. I received the I-20 but haven’t applied for the F1 visa yet. Now I have a company that want’s to employ me and go for an E2 visa.

    Do you think there is going to be an issue if they try to apply for the E2 while I was already accepted into college? Are those 2 visa in conflict? Can I do my master degree with the E2?

    I hope you can help me clarify these questions.
    Kind regards.

    Hello
    I have origin from India but holding canadian passport. I am planning to apply for E-2 visa.
    Only thing I am not quite sure about is my wife’s I-130 petition in progress.

    What do you think are chances of getting E-2 visa if I-130 is in progress?

    If there are chances, Should I apply for E-2 me being principal applicant OR my being principal applicant?

    Hello there,
    I came to the USA on B1/B2 visa and thought that I would find a good business during 6 months. Unfortunately things didn’t work as I planned and my B1/B2 visa expired; however before the expiration date I appled for student visa and still waiting for the approval. I did it because I thought I can find any business that matches my requirements and during the waiting period I can immidately apply for E2 visa. Finally I found one Business and asked the broker to put escrow terms to the aggreement and if i don’t get an approval for E2 visa, all my money will be returned to me. However the seller doesn’t agree with this term and he says that I can buy the business then apply for E2 visa. Is it a true story? Is there is a chance that I don’t get an approval for E2 visa if I’m going to invest in a gas station business that costs $150,000? I’m scared of loosing my money. Because I don’t want to operate a business here illegally.
