What is an E-2 Visa?

  • An E-2 visa is an investor visa that allows business owners and entrepreneurs to operate a business in the United States.
  • E-2 visas are also granted to employees who hold the same nationality as the principal investor.
“Our goal is not simply to obtain a visa but to help our clients succeed inn the US. We will always be there for our current and past clients”. Mark Davies, D&A Chairman.

Who do D&A Obtain E-2 Visas for?

Our London team work directly with E-2 visa applicants across the United Kingdom and beyond. We work with businesses of every size in multiple diverse industries.

While E-2 visas are available to businesses of all sizes many of our UK clients have used the E2 visa to launch a new business in the United States.

Contrary to popular belief, the E2 visa can be transitioned to a Permanent Residency (a “Green Card”) through the EB1 international Manager and EB5 investor visa.

General information on E-2 Visas

“Davies & Associates is clearly the leading E2 visa firm in the UK. They obtained my E-2 visa when other firms said it wasn’t possible. Based on our E-2 experience we have selected D&A as our US corporate lawyers.” E-2 visa client.

Special Considerations for UK E-2 Visa Applicants

  • UK National E-2 visa applicants are unique in that the UK is the only country in the world where the United States imposes certain residency requirements.
  • Generally, only British Citizens holding the right of residency in the UK are eligible for E-2 visas. British Citizens Overseas and certain other categories of UK Nationals are not eligible for E-2 visas.

D&A are experienced at guiding clients through these requirements and have been able to obtain E-2 visas for UK Nationals living outside the UK on a temporary but extended basis.

Why do D&A staff each E-2 Case with both UK and US-based Lawyers?

Because of the nature of the E-2 visa process, some UK visa applicants also work directly with the D&A office in the US that is most local to their proposed US business. This enables us to provide our client with US immigration services and advice in the UK while supporting business documentation and formation that are critical for a successful E-2 case in the applicable US State.

Our London team work with our network of offices and lawyers across the United States and around-the-world to provide our clients with the most comprehensive service available.
