The E-2 Investor Visa, An Attractive Alternative to the EB-5

The E-2 investor visa is quickly rivaling the EB-5 as the best option for investment and legal residence in the U.S. – and for good reason!

In addition to a faster approval timeline, the E-2 relinquishes many of the restrictions of the EB-5, making it much more accessible to those looking to benefit from the booming U.S. economy.  

What are the E-2 Visa Requirements?

  • Invest or be in the process of investing a substantial amount of capital in a U.S. business
  • Be looking to reside in the United States solely to develop and direct the investment

Unlike the EB-5, which generally requires a minimum investment of around $900,000, there is no set minimum for the E-2, though most immigration attorneys will suggest a minimum of $200,000. Therefore, if you are looking to invest a more discreet amount of funds into the U.S. economy, the E-2 is definitely worth considering.

Flexible Travel

While the EB-5 requires you to maintain permanent residence in the U.S., even restricting travel time to some degree, the E-2 allows you to come and go as you please for the duration of the visa, which can last anywhere from three months to five years and may be renewed continuously. 
Family members may also accompany you to the U.S. under the E-2 visa, as investors’ spouses and children are allowed to work in the U.S. and attend the country’s schools. 
Although the EB-5 has similar family benefits, the fees for the E-2 are much lower, usually around $1,000, as compared to the EB-5, which charges at least double that amount. 

A Faster Approval TIMELINE

The EB-5 application and approval process can easily take up to a year or more, as it does require you to obtain permanent citizenship in the U.S. 

Alternatively, the E-2 visa processing time offers a shorter timeline. The process can be condensed to as little as four to six months when overseen by qualified consultants and legal counsel.
