National Immigration Law Corporation has helped many people from all over the world successfully obtain the E2 Investor Visa in order to create or purchase a business in the U.S., then oversee their investment and develop their enterprise.
The E2 requires that the investor be a citizen of a U.S. treaty country and also requires that the investment be “substantial.” The E2 visa is recommended for entrepreneurs who are planning to either buy an existing business or start one from scratch. Although there is no stated dollar minimum, the general rule is that a minimum investment of $100,000 is required. The USCIS reviews the amount invested, as well as the capital required to operate that particular kind of business. Many investors will invest much more than $100,000 which, greatly increases the chances of success.
In any event, the investment cannot be marginal, meaning the investment must generate more income than just for the needs of the applicant and his/her family. The enterprise must also create employment for Legal Permanent Residents and U.S. citizens.
Legal analysis for an E2 case can be complicated requiring experience and skill to prepare the best possible case on your behalf.
