E2 VISA: A U.S. Visa for You and Your Family
E2 visa is an investor visa based upon treaties of friendship, commerce and navigation or other arrangements between the U.S. and a country of which the investor is a national. E2 visa is not commonly seen as being a doorway to becoming a U.S. citizen. But it is a good way for someone who substantially invests in their company in the United States to obtain a visa and travel and live in the U.S.A. Such an investor can reap substantial benefits from acquiring an E2 visa and coming to this country. Along with being able to bring your spouse and dependent children (under 21 year old) to the U.S. and the fact that your spouse may seek employment, you may travel freely throughout the country and work at the company in which you have invested. If you are applying for E2 visa status within the U.S. the E2 visa is valid for two years, but may be renewed as long as you qualify for the visa. Always visit USCIS website for more information. U.S. Department of State also has useful information about E2 Visa.
