Do you currently have your own business in your home country? Do you want to open a business in the United States? Do you have funds to invest in your own business? Do you have around $100,000 to move forward with an investment in a currently operating business or one that you will make from scratch? Do you want to come to the United States on a work / investment type visa. The E-2 Investors Visa might be the best option for you. It will differ from the E-1 in that this is an investment visa, while the E-1 is a trading visa. Thus, the actual ‘investment’ needed for the E-2 is a very important factor and needs to be around $100,000. However, not all of that has to go specifically into the business. Some can be used as capital to make the business run, prepaid rent, and expenses that you already used to get the business running. This is a great way to be able to come to the United States and continue with your business and travel back and forth without a problem.
In order to initially even be considered for this type of visa, you will need to make sure that there is an E-2 Investment Visa treaty with the United States. While there are several requirements and this type of visa with its petition will try to show all those requirements, you cannot even begin if you are not a citizen of the country which the United States has a treaty.
While it would be better and more effective to use an experienced attorney, it is clear that many times people just do not have the funds to retain an attorney. Therefore, note that this E-2 Treaty Investor Petition is made by an experienced immigration lawyer with nearly 30 years of experience. It is real and it was actually submitted. You can put your own facts and information in this petition, and note that it will be a very good sample for you to proceed with the E-2 Petition for yourself.
The sample E-2 Treaty Investor Petition will give lots of great information and a significant amount of information and data that will comply with the requirements. Thus, if you cannot hire an immigration lawyer to prepare the necessary E-2 Treaty Investor Petition, then this is the next best thing. Follow it carefully and closely and you will have a real chance of realizing your dream to stay inside the United States. Note that the adjudicating officer at USCIS is not your friend or the Consulate Officer at the U.S. Consulate deciding whether you should get this particular visa or status. Thus, you need to completely and properly document and prepare your E-2 Treaty Investor Petition. You must properly either get legal representation via an attorney or represent yourself. Either way, if you qualify for this, you must make it as strong as possible.
We certainly hope you find this petition useful and helpful and hope for the best immigration experience you can have.
