WHAT IS AN E-2 TREATY INVESTOR VISA?
 
The E-2 Visa is a non-immigrant Visa that allows people living outside the U.S. to enter the U.S. with the purchase of an existing business. The purchaser must be from a country with which the United States maintains a treaty of commerce and navigation. There are detailed guidelines and requirements for the E-2 Visa which can be found at the US Citizenship and Immigration Services website.



WHAT IS AN EB-5 INVESTOR GREEN CARD?

The permanent resident status or the EB-5 eligibility is available to investors, either alone or coming with their spouse and unmarried children. Eligible foreign nationals are those who have invested, or are actively in the process of investing the required amount of capital into a new business enterprise that they have established. You must further demonstrate that this investment will benefit the U.S. economy and create the requisite number of full-time jobs for qualified persons within the U.S. There are detailed guidelines and requirements for the EB-5 Investor Green Card which can be found at the US Citizenship and Immigration Services website.
