E-2 & EB-5 Investor Visa for Egyptian Nationals

E-2 and EB-5 Investor Visa Solutions for Egyptian Nationals

Based in New York City with locations in Los Angeles, Miami and San Jose/San Francisco we are the only US-based immigration law firm with a permanent presence in Cairo and the only US immigration firm to include Egyptian lawyers in our team of expert US E-2 and EB-5 investor visa lawyers. To our knowledge no other US immigration law firm has a dedicated Egypt practice team.

How Can an Egyptian Investor Obtain a US Visa?

Because of treaties entered into between Egypt and the United States Egyptian nationals benefit from being eligible for both E-2 non-immigrant and EB-5 immigrant visas. An E-2 visa has the advantage of potentially requiring substantially less investment and permits an Egyptian business owner or investor to operate and manage a business in the United States. Unlike with an E-2 visa, a successful application for an EB-5 visa results in the issuance of “green cards” for the principal investor and his immediate family but requires a minimum investment of either USD 900,000.00 or USD 1,800,000.00.

Egypt Investment

Removing Capital from Egypt

One of the challenges with investor visas can be the ability of the investor to remove his or her capital from Egypt. This is one the reasons why our Egypt investor team includes Egyptian lawyers in Cairo and Dubai who are familiar with how to lawfully withdraw capital from Egypt and invest it in the United States.

Is there a Minimum Investment for an E-2 Visa?

Although under US law an investment in an E-2 business must be “substantial” there is no minimum investment requirement. While what is “substantial” depends on the type of business involved E-2 visa applications evidencing less than about USD 100,000 in investment tend to receive heightened scrutiny. The lack of clarity in what is a “substantial investment” is part of the reason why an expertly prepared business plan is essential in E-2 cases. The MBA lawyers at Davies & Associates work with a dedicated team of business analysts to prepare what we truly believe to be the very best immigration business plans available.

Egyptian Investor Visas in the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Jordan The Oman and Qatar

Our firm is used to assisting Egyptians resident in Qatar, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and The Oman. We understand the difficulties of obtaining nationality in those countries and the relative advantages offered by the United States. Our affiliate office in Dubai stands ready to assist Egyptian nationals resident in the Gulf region.

How can Davies & Associates Assist Egyptian Nationals Obtain a US Investor Visa?

Our US investor visa lawyers are some of the best credentialed US immigration lawyers in the world. Very few US immigration firms offer experienced lawyers with “ivy league” law degrees coupled with training in one the world’s 100 largest law firms. Our key difference is that our lawyers also have extensive business experience holding MBA degrees from Universities such as the Wharton School of Business. The inclusion of Egyptian lawyers who can advise on issues such as the withdrawal of capital from Egypt in our Egypt business visa team make us truly unique. Perhaps this the reason why to-date no visa application we have filed on behalf of an Egyptian national has ever been denied or even referred for an “RFE”.

Our Promise

Our promise is simple. We promise to take every effort to ensure that our Egyptian clients receive the very best possible service and results available.

Specialized Tax Considerations for Egyptian E-2 and EB-5 Visa Holders

Each year poor tax planning causes Egyptian nationals to pay many hundreds of thousands of dollars to the US IRS and other governments in unnecessary taxes. Although we are a US immigration-only law firm specializing in assisting Egyptian business owners, entrepreneurs and investors we see properly addressing tax issues as a critical part of a successful E-2 and EB-5 visa approach. For this reason we have a dedicated international tax lawyer as part of our Egyptian business visa team.

Bringing Employees to the United States

A business that is qualified as an Egyptian E-2 business is able to sponsor certain Egyptian national employees and bring them to the United States as E-2 visa employees. The requirements of E-2 employee visa issuance are complex and we invite you to contact us for further details.

Seamless Processing in the United States, Cairo and Dubai

Although our US immigration lawyers are based in the United States we have fully staffed affiliate offices in both Cairo and Dubai. Our US immigration lawyers are not only available 7 days a week by phone but also frequently visit with clients in our Cairo and Dubai locations.

"After finding D&A through an internet search in 2020, my wife and I had several free consultations with David Cantor. Despite our initial attempt at filing for our E2 visa independently ending in failure, we decided to hire D&A for their expertise and support. Over the course of four long years, Verdie and Cristina were incredibly patient as we took our time to prepare for the E2 submission. Verdie became our E2 Attorney in 2021, and from the start, Verdie and Cristina's patience was evident. Despite our intermittent engagement over the years, they always treated us with the utmost attention. Working with Verdie and the D&A team was a pleasure; their professionalism and support were unwavering. Verdie's calm demeanor and succinct communication style made navigating the process much smoother, even during complex discussions. I wholeheartedly recommend Verdie and D&A - Davies & Associates, to anyone seeking an immigration law firm who can efficiently handle their case with precision and without unnecessary fanfare. Their ability to get things done speaks volumes about their dedication to their clients' success."

Thanks to them for handling my E2 visa very professionally. I had a study visa from F1 and changed it to E2. I encountered many problems during the application process. Verdie and Etta were very patient in helping me and it took a long time. I highly recommend this place.
