E-1 Visas & E-2 Visas

Nonimmigrant Visas for Nationals of Treaty Countries

If you are a foreign national who needs to travel to the United States for commercial purposes, speak with a North Carolina immigration lawyer from Fayad Law, P.C. to find out if you are eligible for an E-1 or E-2 visa. These nonimmigrant business visas allow foreign nationals of U.S. treaty countries (countries with which the U.S. maintains a treaty of commerce and navigation) to enter the U.S. for trade and investment purposes. Whether you are currently living abroad or want to meet with us in one of our offices in Raleigh, NC, Fairfax or Richmond, VA or Washington, DC, we can help you.

Treaty Traders & Treaty Investors

For individuals looking to carry on substantial trade between the U.S. and their country of origin, an E-1 visa would be the appropriate choice. These visas allow employees of eligible companies to travel to the United States for a minimum initial stay of two years, during which time they must engage in executive or supervisory duties for the company that is engaging in trade with the United States. Treaty investors can apply for an E-2 visa if they invest a substantial amount in a U.S. enterprise, such as enough to purchase or establish an enterprise or to make it likely that they will take over the enterprise.

Applying for an E-1 or E-2 Visa

If you are currently in the United States as a lawful nonimmigrant, you or your employer can file a Form I-129 to request a change of status to that of an E-1 or E-2 visa. If you are outside of the United States, you must visit your local U.S. Embassy or Consulate to apply. You may also be able to apply online by completing the DS-160, Online Nonimmigrant Visa Application Form. Speak with an immigration lawyer from our firm to learn more.
