What Are Investor Visas?

An investor visa is a type of visa that enables foreign nationals to invest in the United States. Investor visas fall into two categories: the EB- 5 visa and the E- 2 visa. These visas have different requirements and benefits; let's explore them.

  • Invest at least $500,000 in a new commercial enterprise.
  • Must create at least ten full-time jobs for U.S workers.
  • Be involved in the day-to-day management of the enterprise.

The benefits of this visa include living and working permanently in the United States and applying for citizenship after five years.

E- 2 Visa

An E-2 visa is a nonimmigrant visa that allows you to live and work in the United States for a specific period of time. To be eligible, you must:

  • Invest at least $100,000 in a new commercial enterprise.
  • Must create at least two full-time jobs for U.S workers.
