Our Process

Grenada + E2 Visa

An Indian couple came to Davies & Associates seeking an E-2 Visa. This visa category allows a person to relocate to the United States for the purpose of owning and operating a business. Yet, Indian nationals are not eligible for the E-2 Visa because no relevant treaty exists between India and the United States.

Undeterred, D&A’s lawyers were able to recommend a solution. The couple first took citizenship of Grenada, an island in the Caribbean whose nationals are eligible for an E-2 Visa. Although part of the attraction of Grenada was the fact that it did not have a residency requirement and did not tax worldwide income, the couple fell in love with the island. It’s diverse economy, beautiful weather, welcoming people and proximity to the USA, meant they were only too happy to visit on multiple occasions.

The couple received their Grenadian citizenship within a matter of months. The programme is known for its quick processing times. The Grenada programme has two pathways to citizenship, a donation to a government fund or an investment in real estate. The couple opted for the donation route, which is normally faster.

“The people are really warm, very helpful and quite openminded when it comes to business… Not to mention as a passport it’s great from a travel perspective…It’s just 4/5 hours from New York”

Once in Grenada, the couple were passed from our Citizenship by Investment team to our E-2 Team. Our top US-based attorneys helped the couple prepare their application and draw up a business plan.

Verdie Atienza, the head of our E-2 processing team also ran a series of mock interviews to prepare the clients for any questions they might encounter at the US embassy. Grenada is covered by the US embassy on the neighboring island of Barbados.

Armed with a compelling business case and prepared for any eventuality, the couple made a successful trip to the US embassy in Barbados. Soon after they were able to fly to JFK where they were rushed through customs as E-2 Visa holders. They are now living their new life in the USA within a year of starting the whole process.

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.

Getting my E2 Visa was a very in-depth process that took just over a year from when I committed to it, but 8 months from when I found a business I wanted to purchase. The only reason I'm giving 4 and not 5 stars is because the timeframe was a lot longer than expected from the initial information. Aside from the timing, Verdie and his team led me through the Visa process, providing all the guidance I needed to be successful, including advising me on the RIGHT type of Visa to suit my goals. Within the process I purchased a business and the greater Davies team included lawyer Rinat who helped me put the deal together. One of the biggest parts was my Business Plan which created from my info by Ana Ortiz, who did an incredible job. The process is certainly tedious and Verdie & Christina were always there to answer my questions, provide suggestions and advice and ensure I had all the documents I needed to support my application. I appreciated their patience with my questions and their advice and in the end, the application was so thorough the interview process was quick and easy. I highly recommend Davies & Associates and look forward to working with them again when it's time to renew my Visa.

We were in a hurry and Verdie and the team were highly responsive and supportive, even when we threw in some curve balls along the way. We had our visas approved without any issues and felt confident and well prepared for document submissions and the interview. I'd certainly recommend this team for an E2 visa process.
