Did you know that the validity of an E-2 visa depends on a reciprocity schedule? For most E-2 Treaty Countries, the visa validity is 5 years. For Australians, it is 4 years.
For countries like Egypt, Jordan and Bangladesh, the reciprocity schedule only provides for an E-2 visa validity of 3 months. Even if the visa validity is only three months, the E-2 Treaty Investor and family will still get a period of authorized stay of two years.
For every entry on a valid E-2 visa, an E-2 visa holder gets a full two year period of authorized stay in the U.S.
