E2 Visa Romanian Citizen

Are E-2 Dependents (Spouse and Children below 21 years old) required to be nationals of a treaty country?

Did you know that the dependent spouse and children of an E-2 Treaty Investor do not need to have the same nationality. The spouse and children qualify for E-2 derivative visas even are citizens of a country with no E treaty with the U.S. While our client is a Romanian citizen, she and her family resides in Italy. Due to the longer wait times in Rome, we advised our client to file their E2 applications at the US Embassy in Bucharest, Romania.
