E-2 Visa Investor: What Type Are You?

Now that you know the requirements for the E2 visa, you should think about what type of investor you are. We tend to see two types of E2 visa investors:

Strategic/Financial Investor

  • Foreign corporations and individuals seeking to enter new markets and/or expand product offering

  • Initial investment from $80,000 to $1,000,000+

  • Beyond visa eligibility, there is a major focus on return on investment

  • Aims to expand the business through opening new locations, acquiring competitors or other means

  • Location is important but often secondary to strong earnings and potential growth


Lifestyle Investor

  • Foreign individuals generally with a net worth above $1,000,000

  • Prioritize working less hours over gaining more income from the business

  • Initial investment from $150,000 to $350,000

  • School district is very important for the children

  • Longevity of the business is more important than high profits

  • Potential to sell the business after 2-4 years if they return to their home country or decide to pursue a green card
