Exploring E2 Visa Through Real Study Cases

Renewing an E-2 Treaty Investor Visa 

While the E-2 Treaty Investor visa is a non-immigrant visa, it is renewable indefinitely for as long as the business continues to operate and meet the requirements. Our E-2 client from Turkey was successful in getting his E-2 Visa renewed. He plans to re-enter the U.S. soon and further develop his enterprise.

The beneficiary received another two years of authorized stay in the U.S. on E-2 classification. 

E-2 Treaty Investor Visa for a UK Citizen valid for 5 years

We assisted our client in acquiring 60% of an existing company in the U.S. to apply for an E-2 Treaty Investor Visa for UK Citizens. The company operates a gas station with a convenience store.

In buying an existing business to qualify for an E-2 Visa, you should check whether the company is profitable and whether it has the ability to hire more employees.

“I am very pleased to inform you that my E2 Visa Application has been approved. I appreciate your expert advice and support throughout this process. It would be an honor to recommend Davies & Associates to all my friends and family. I really appreciate your help and support.”
