E-1 Visas for International Traders

E-1 visas are available to nationals of the treaty country if they meet the following criteria:

  • The applicant must be a national of the treaty country
  • The activities constitute trade under the Immigration & Nationality Act
  • The trade is substantial and is between the US and the treaty country

Trade is defined as the international exchange of goods between the United States and the treaty country of which the trader is a national. Goods could be tangible and non-tangible goods and services. The trade must also be ongoing, and the applicant must show that it was so at the time of the application.

The trade must also be principally between the United States and the treaty country. Employees of the trading company can be new hires and do not have to have worked with the company but must be treaty nationals.
