To qualify for an E-2 visa you must invest a substantial amount in the U.S. The investment amount depends on the type of business that you are setting up. You can find out more about the investment amount by clicking here. In order to qualify for an E-2 visa, you must have a passport from a Treaty country.
One question that often comes up is whether the investment funds must come from the Treaty country. As long as the funds come from a legitimate source, they can come from any country, including the U.S. For example, if an applicant is applying for an E-2 visa with a passport from Spain, the investment funds do not have to come from Spain. The funds can be gifted from a U.S. relative or can come from any other country. The applicant must have a passport from the Treaty Country but there is no requirement that the funds come from the Treaty country.
