The E-2 Visa: Renewing your Visa

USA and United Kingdom flags

How Long will my E-2 Visa be Issued for?

While a consulate can issue an E-2 visa for any period they like up to a maximum of five years D&A have never filed an E-2 visa Petition in London that has been approved for a period of anything less than five (5) years.

While D&A has never had a UK E-2 visa refused in one case an E-2 visa was issued to a British Citizen at a US consulate in Australia with a validity period of two (2) years. This case involved one individual operating a very small business where the investment in the business was largely achieved through donated equipment.

Other than this one example all E-2 applicants represented by our firm have been approved for the maximum five (5) year term.

How do I Renew an E-2 Visa?

So long as your business is still viable and you have not made substantial changes you should have no difficulty having your E-2 visa renewed.

How Many Times can my E-2 Visa be Renewed?

There is no limit on how many times an E-2 visa can be renewed.
