What is an E-2 visa? An E-2 visa is a visa that allows people from certain countries, currently there are 49 countries that have treaties with the United States to come to the United States and run viable businesses in the United States. And as long as the business is working, they can remain here. The cool thing about the E-2 visa is that there is no minimum investment required. So, I’ve done it for people who invested as low as $17,000 into the entity and I’ve done it for people who submitted petitions for a million dollars in the entity. So, it really depends on the type of entity that you are using to apply for your E-2 status.
