The E2 is the primary investor visa and currently has no quota or annual cap, so E2 visas are unlimited in the number available. This visa basically allows you to buy entry into the US without actually "immigrating," and is typically issued for two or five year periods. It can be renewed indefinitely as long as the investor is running the business and it generates "more than enough revenue" to support the investor's family. The E2 visa also covers the investor's spouse and children under age 21.

Who typically uses the E2 Investor Visa? 

  • People who want to purchase a franchise or small business in the US

  • People who want to retire in America 

  • Real estate investors 

Quantum Advisors can connect you with established revenue generating businesses that are for sale. Typically businesses for sale range between a minimum $750k up to $2million. An owner or developer of the new enterprise from a treaty country must have 50% or more ownership in a substantial US ‘employment creating’ investment. The Visa permits citizens of certain countries (see list below) to reside in the United States through an investment in the US. The investor must come to manage or oversee the investment. You can invest in virtually anything or trade in virtually anything. The E2 visa lasts as long as the holder maintains the investment. E2 visas are considered nonimmigrant visas. However, once an investor is able to qualify and enter into the U.S. in this category, they are able to look for other opportunities and to apply for green cards and eventually citizenship.

  • E2 visa holders may only work for themselves or the E visa enterprise. 

  • E2 visas may be extended as long as the E visa enterprise is operating.

  • E2 visas are generally issued in five year increments. 

  • E2 visa dependent children loose their E visa status when they turn 21 years of age. At that time they need to find another status. 

  • E2 visa holders and dependents may study in the US. 

  • E2 visa holders do not have to live in the US any particular amount of time and may arrange their affairs so they are not subject to world wide taxation.
