Here are the top E-2 Visa Advantages:

1.    You can work legally in the U.S. for a company that is the subject of your investment.

One of the main E-2 visa advantages is that you can conduct business legally within the United States and also be employed by that business. Whether the company is pre-existing or you’re just starting up, it is important that you play a vital role in the business.

2.     There is no minimum investment amount that is required.

The U.S. government does not specify a minimum or maximum amount for an E-2 visa investment. However, your investment must be a substantial amount (around $100,000) and you must not be able to withdraw your funds.

3.     Your spouse can work under an E-2 dependent visa.

Spouses of E-2 investors may work in the U.S. by applying for a temporary work permit or employment authorization document (EAD). This allows the spouse to work for any company in the U.S. or start his or her own business.

4.     Your children under 21 can attend a school of your choice with an E-2 dependent visa.

Children under 21 may not qualify for a work visa but they are able to pursue a higher education that will be accredited. They will then be able to apply for other non-immigrant visas to work after seeking a degree.

5.     You can travel freely in and out of the U.S.

As long as your E-2 treaty trader visa is valid, foreign investors and their dependents have the choice of living outside of the United States for an undetermined amount of time and can come and go as they please.

6.     You can stay indefinitely.

E-2 visa holders maintain their E-2 status for two-year increments and can request an extension of stay an unlimited amount of times. Essentially, you can reside and conduct business in the U.S. for as long as your extensions are approved. You can do this without being a green card holder or a U.S. citizen.
