Do I Qualify for an E-1 Visa?
Only certain individuals qualify for E-1 visas, or Treaty Trader Visas. Generally speaking, these visas are reserved for business people planning trades worth more than $200,000 and must be involved with trade on a regular basis that is also based in the visa holder’s country of origin.
To qualify for an E-1 visa, the following must be true:
- The visa holder must carry on substantial trade between the United States and the trader’s home country.
- At least 50% of the trade conducted by the visa holder’s company must be between the U.S. and the visa holder’s home country.
- The visa holder must be a national of a qualifying treaty country.
- The items traded may include goods, services, transportation, tourism, technology, or insurance.
The applicant for an E-1 visa can be either the trader himself/herself, or the supervisor or executive who operates the trading firm. Ordinary skilled workers do not qualify for E-1 visas.
Required Documentation for E-1 Visas
Individuals who wish to apply for the E-1 visa must provide documentation that includes:
- Statement explaining the details of your business and position
- Documents showing trade between your country and the U.S., such as sales reports, invoices, shipping records, annual reports, tax records, etc.
- Copy of passports for all applicants
- Copy of birth certificates and marriage certificates for all applicants
- Form I-94 and copy of U.S. visas
An attorney can guide you through the application process to help ensure that your petition includes all the necessary information for maximum chances of approval.
