E-2 Visa

E-2 Visa Attorney in Evanston

A Potentially Quicker Way to Invest in the U.S.

Although foreign-born entrepreneurs with substantial capital and intent to take up residence in the U.S. for a long period of time are likely to consider the EB-5 visa program, other investors may look to the E-2 visa to build their business within U.S. borders. If you need an E-2 visa to begin your investment, contact attorney Alen Takhsh so he can guide you through your application process.

Key features of an E-2 visa include:

  • No permanent residence requirement (only permits a temporary stay)
  • No prescribed minimum investment or quota
  • Only your investment must stay within the U.S.
  • Relatively short processing time compared to EB-5 visas

Importantly, however, only foreign nationals of countries with whom the U.S. government has a treaty can apply for this type of visa. Applicants must submit their applications through a U.S. Consulate, and the processing time can take two weeks to four months – more than three to four times quicker than a typical EB-5 process may take.

If you’re not a U.S. citizen but want to invest in the U.S. as soon as possible, consult with Evanston E-2 visa attorney Alen Takhsh at Takhsh Law P.C. by contacting him online or calling (312) 561-3735!

Requirements to Obtain an E-2 Visa

Because an E-2 visa only permits a temporary stay, its requirements aren’t as rigorous as those of an EB-5 where a Green Card is issued. That, however, doesn’t mean there are still strict rules concerning this document.

Requirements for receiving an E-2 visa include:

  • You must be a national from a country that has a treaty with the U.S.
  • You must have already invested or demonstrate that you are actively investing and close to starting business activities
  • You must demonstrate you have skills to develop and direct your business
  • You must have a substantial investment (a nebulous amount that typically comes down to be whatever is necessary to run your business)
  • Your business cannot be marginal – this means it must show growth and exist beyond a means of living for you or your family
  • You must leave the country once your visa expires

If you need help understanding how you can meet these requirements, reach out to an E-2 visa lawyer in Evanston for help. Attorney Alen Takhsh of Takhsh Law P.C. is able and ready to help you build the legal framework to enter the country and begin a new U.S.-based business.
