There are more than 60 countries which have E-1 and E-2 treaties with the US. The E visas allow foreign-born investors to conduct businesses in the US or work in the US for certain foreign-owned companies.
Treaty traders (E1 visas)
The E1 visa, also known as the Treaty Trader Visa is a US non-immigrant visa. Treaty traders are those who conduct substantial, principal trade in goods, services or technology between the country of applicant’s citizenship and the US. The available laws do not specify a minimum amount of trade that must be done to be eligible for an E1 visa, since this differs based on industries.
Treaty investors (E2 visas)
Treaty investors are known as those who direct processes of a business in which they have made substantial investment, or are actively investing, a substantial amount of money or capital in a bona fide U.S. business.
