E2 Visa Approved

There are two ways to obtain an E2 Visa as a Treaty Trader, at a US Consulate or Embassy, or by mail with USCIS through a change of status. We recently received approval for an E2 visa for the owner of a gas station who changed status from a visitor visa to an E2 visa while remaining inside the United States.

USCIS E2 Visa Approval


What is E2 Visa Status?

E-2 Treaty Investor visas are designated for those coming to the United States to develop and direct the operations of an enterprise in which the applicant has invested a substantial amount of capital, or to work in the enterprise as an executive, supervisor, or essentially skilled employee. The E-2 visa is typically referred to as the “Investor Visa.”

Case Summary

In the case in point, our client purchased an existing gas station in the United States for $175,000. The gas station currently employs 2 US workers. The applicant, a citizen of Canada, made the investment from a mixture of both personal funds and “gift funds.”

USCIS approved the case for a maximum 2-year time period.
