E-1 Visa & Investment
One of the very common questions we get from prospective clients is whether they have to invest money in the U.S. (and if so how much) to qualify for an E-1 visa.
The short answer is: no! While a substantial investment is required for an E-2 visa (for an E-2 visa, you should generally invest around $100,000) you do not need to invest money in the U.S. business for an E-1 visa. This means, that as long as you meet all the E-1 visa requirements, you do not need to make any upfront investment in the U.S. before your E1 visa is approved. This is a big advantage of an E-1 visa and many applicants who qualify for both E-1 or E-2 visa prefer E-1 visa, as they do not need to make that significant upfront investment.
