Short Hills Entrepreneur Visa Consultants
Professional and Capable Guidance
Entrepreneurs willing to make substantial commercial investments in the
United States economy can potentially qualify for the E-2 treaty investor
visa or EB-5 immigrant investor program. The E-2 treaty investor visa
is technically a temporary visa but allows for unlimited extensions so
long as its conditions continue to be met.
The EB-5 immigrant investor program issues
green cards, which confer lawful permanent residency and can serve as a pathway to
citizenship. Your country of origin and the size of your investment will influence
which entrepreneurial visas you may qualify for.
Our Short Hills entrepreneur visa consultants at Worldwide Legal Services can help you leverage your investment to access
immigration benefits. Our team of professionals, consultants, and specialists

What Is an E-2 Treaty Investor Visa?
If you are not interested in permanently immigrating to the United States
but wish to benefit from the country’s robust and multifaceted economy,
the E-2 treaty investor visa may support your goals.
The E-2 treaty investor visa allows beneficiaries to live anywhere in the
United States so long as they work to support their underlying investment.
It also requires a substantially smaller investment than the EB-5 immigrant
How Long Do E-2 Treaty Investor Visas Last?
The visa can be renewed indefinitely in 2-year increments, effectively
allowing recipients to remain in the United States as long as they like.
Beneficiaries will need to continue to support their investment in order
to qualify for renewals. An E-2 treaty investor visa cannot directly lead
to a green card, however.
How Do You Qualify for an E-2 Treaty Investor Visas?
To qualify for the E-2 treaty investor visa, you must:
Be a national of a country that maintains an investment treaty with the
United States. Fortunately, many countries qualify. We can determine whether your country
Make a “substantial investment” in a U.S.-based commercial
enterprise. You can choose to create a new business or invest in an existing one,
but you will generally need to invest at least $100,000. You may be able
to invest less in a start-up or smaller company.
Invest in a “real” operating enterprise that places your funds at risk. You cannot simply invest in real estate holdings or some other arrangement
that does not actively conduct trade. The enterprise you invest in must
actively and consistently exchange goods or services. The funds must also
be “at risk,” meaning there must be the possibility you lose
the entirety of your investment.
Travel to the United States with the intention of managing your investment. Your investment must result in your taking an executive or managerial role
within the enterprise. You may still qualify if you assume a non-executive
position requiring highly specialized skills. You will only be authorized
to work at the enterprise you invested in and must continue to support
it if you wish to renew your visa.
Applying for the E-2 treaty investor visa involves submitting extensive
financial documentation. Our Short Hills entrepreneur visa consultants
can review your situation to determine if you will qualify and assist
in the preparation of your application materials.
