United States: How to Obtain a residency permit through the E-2 visa.

Thousands of foreign nationals are making the decision to permanently make the move to the United States and actively exploring their options to do so. Today we are going to explain you in depth this opportunity to become a united states resident in an easy way

The USA remains one of the most sought-after destinations for investors. The US E-2 Immigrant Investor Program offers an efficient route to residency status in a short period of time.

What is the E-2 visa?

This is a non-immigrant visa which means that you will not be able to acquire a green card visa but you will still be able to live and work legally in the United States. To obtain this visa the only requirement is you create or take a previous successful business to the county.

This visa is renewable depending on your country of citizenship. For example for mexican citizens they can have this visa for 4 years until they have to apply for renewal. Fortunately, you can renew this visa indefinitely if you prove that your business is still functioning well.

It is also family friendly because if you are married your partner will also receive a work permit meaning that they can continue their career path in this new county. Also your children will be able to access a public school education.

How to apply?
