There are many different advantages to take into consideration when applying for an E2 Visa, starting with its flexibility and followed by others like:


Allows a non-American citizen to live and work legally in the United States.


Investors can live in the United States for long periods of time or travel frequently to their home countries with very few restrictions.


Should the E2 Investor move to the United States for a long period, his or her family (children under 21 years old and spouse) will be authorized with a visa under the same conditions. Children are permitted to attend school and University if they wish, and spouses may either help the investor to initiate the business or find a job in an unrelated U.S company.


Compared to the EB-5, the E2 visa approval requires a significantly lower amount of money to be invested.


As long as the investor keeps the business running under the same conditions and requirements, the E2 visa can be renewed as many times as desired. A typical renewal lasts between 2 and 5 years.


Under normal circumstances and depending on the country/U.S. Embassy, the processing time for an E-2 Visa application may be from 4 to 12 weeks. If the investor is advised and prepared by an experienced immigration attorney, the approval rate for this type of visa is generally higher than 90%.
