Frequently Asked Questions about the E2 Visa

E2 Visa Requirements

  • You must have a passport from an E2 treaty country, like Colombia. NOTE – None of your family members need to have the same passport. They can come as derivatives even if they have passports from non-treaty countries.
  • You must invest in a new or existing business in the US with the goal of making a profit. Your investment in the new or existing business must be “substantial.” A “substantial” investment is not defined as a number, but is judged under the totality of the circumstances. The location of the business and the type of business will be considered. That said, you should count on investing at least $100,000 in order to show substantiality.
  • The business you invest in should be a “bona fide enterprise” (sometimes called the “Real and Active” requirement). You must show that this business provides a good or services and operates on a day-to-day basis. Passive or speculative investments will not meet this requirement.
  • The business must not be “marginal.” It must have the “present or future capacity to generate more than enough income to provide a minimal living for the treaty investor and his or her family.” This is not a hobby business or a part-time business. You should be actively working on the business and intending the business to be a full-time venture that will financially support you, your family and employees and their families.
  • You must invest in the business, and the funds must be “irrevocably committed.” This means you must be able to show that the money has already been spent before you apply for the E2 visa.
  • You must be able to trace the money used to invest in the U.S. business. In other words, you must be able to show that the money is yours – not investors’ or third parties. It goes without saying that you must also show that the money was not received as a result of criminal activities.
  • Your goal in coming to the US is to “direct and develop” this business. In other words, you need to show that you have the ability and capacity to “direct and develop” the business. This is typically demonstrated by showing that you have at least 51% ownership in the busines

Angie is the epitome of class, competence & excellence. I have never worked with a more caring, thorough immigration attorney - and I have worked with multiple! She helped with my E2 visa application which I wasn't entirely sure would be a success, however with her knowledge and skills I was approved very quickly. I'm so glad to have found Angie when I did although I wish I met her years ago! I would strongly recommend anyone who needs an E2 lawyer to contact Angie *immediately*. You absolutely won't regret it!!!

I don’t even know where to begin!!!!

My husband and I reached out the Angie last year to help us out with our E2 visa. Since the very beginning Angie has been there every step of the way. It was a year-long process obtaining our visa. Through it all even if there was a few minor setbacks with the process she made sure that we weren’t forgotten. Angie is warm, intelligent (she really knows her stuff) & very professional. Although this has been a year long journey for us, she made us feel that we were in good hands the whole time and that was very important to my husband and I considering our situation.

If anyone out there is reading this and thinking about doing work with Angie don’t even second doubt your decision. DO IT.

Angie thank you again for everything!! You changed our lives for the better we can’t thank you enough!

At the heart of it, Angie is a real hard worker that cares about her clients. She has gone above and beyond for my application, providing generous support and guidance throughout the process. She is so meticulous with her handling of documents, combing through and triple checking every field, cross referencing to ensure that information is 100% accurate. Best of all, I don’t have to travel to see her, unlike my previous lawyer which I had to travel through rush hour gridlock on Wilshire for a meeting. She takes phone calls and does the entire application through email and phone correspondence. Needless to say, I my application was a success. Don’t hesitate, she’s the best one out there!
