- No minimum investment
Unlike the EB-5 Program, E-2 doesn’t have a set amount, the law states however that the investment must be significant.
- Short Processing time
Because the E-2 is a non-immigrant visa, there is no quota waiting period.
- Ownership By Investor
The treaty investor visa specifically allows (requires) the investor to own at least 50% the U.S. business.
- Permission to Work In U. S.
The E-2 visa allows the principal investor to be actively employed in the investment enterprise. He may be paid salary and/or draw dividends or receive benefits similar to those of United States workers.
- Investment Flexibility
Great amount of flexibility about HOW the investment funds are deployed.
- Includes Spouse and Children
Qualified investors are entitled to request E-2 status for their spouses and children. Spouses can maintain this status indefinitely, if the principal investor continues to qualify and that the marriage continues intact.
- Spouse is eligible to work in US
Spouse of an E-2 visa holder has the right to work in the U.S.
