High E-2 Visa Approval Rates Show Promise for Prospective Investors

With a consistent, year-over-year approval rate of nearly 90%, the E-2 Visa remains a popular and accessible option for those looking to legally move to the U.S. within a relatively short timeframe.

The only thing more encouraging than the consistent success rate of this visa is the vast array of countries that can access it.

As of now, 81 countries maintain treaties of commerce and navigation with the United States. Canada and Japan, as well as several Latin American countries—including Columbia and Mexico— have historically yielded the highest rates of E-2 Visas, and demand is not likely to die down anytime soon.

U.S. Economy Holds Strong

With the economic effects of COVID-19 winding down, citizens of countries outside the U.S. are once more able to travel to and from the country, as well as obtain work there. Furthermore, given the recent Ukraine crisis overseas, the U.S. continues to be a safe haven for investors looking to protect their assets from geopolitical strife.

Among the sectors of the U.S. economy yielding the highest demand is real estate, with prices rising in key cities like New York, Miami, and Los Angeles to meet overwhelming demand. While these conditions may initially ward off investors, many experts predict that they will actually create a favorable climate—one with less competition for prospective buyers looking to invest their funds.

Overall outlooks for the country’s economy are generally positive as well. According to the United States Federal Reserve, the country’s gross domestic product (GDP) is expected to grow by 2.8% this year, and unemployment is expected to fall 3.5%.

Given that the country’s average approval rate remains high, now is truly the perfect time to take advantage of its booming economy while enjoying all the benefits of U.S. citizenship.

Advantages for Latin America

Given their close proximity to the United States, citizens of Latin American countries with qualifying treaties—namely Colombia, Argentina, Chile, Ecuador, Costa Rica, Honduras, Mexico, Panama, and Paraguay—continue to pursue work and investment visas in the country, with the possibility of convenient travel between countries only adding to the already widespread appeal. Those from countries that don’t qualify—including Brazil, Venezuela, and Uruguay—can still gain access if they have a passport from a qualifying country.

In terms of qualifying Latin-American countries, Argentina has traditionally yielded the most approvals of any.

In Mexico, Chile, and Peru in particular, industry leaders predict a large capital outflow over the next year that will land in cities like Miami and Austin, Texas. Therefore, obtaining an E2 Visa now is a great way to get ahead of the curve and ensure your investments can be as lucrative as possible.

Increase Chances of Success by Working with Professionals

While the E2 visa holds many advantages and is a relatively quick path to long-term, U.S. citizenship, the process is still complex and can present roadblocks. For one, you will need to employ an immigration attorney, as well as arrange a meeting with a U.S. consulate office, in addition to extensive documentation related to your prospective investments, employees, and family members that will be joining you. You will be judged not only on the quality of your investments, but as well as how much you plan to invest and where.
