    E2 Visa Part 2 Investor Eligibility

    Welcome to the Law Offices of Chris M. Ingram. We are delighted that you have joined us for Part 2 in our video presentation series on the E2 Investment visa. Ok – let’s get started.

    Can Anyone From Around the World Qualify for an E2 Visa? For about two centuries the US has been establishing trade treaties with countries from all over the world that have now been incorporated into the E2 investment visa program. For example, Great Britain has had a treaty with the US since July 3rd, 1815 and Chile was added January 1st, 2004.  Please see the list of countries and make sure your country has a treaty with the US for the E2 Visa. 

    How Long Do E2 Visas Last? –  This is a great question and comes under what is called the Doctrine of Reciprocity. In layman’s terms, it simply refers to what the countries have individually agreed with the US as to how long each E2 visa can be issued for and secondly how many times the E2 visa can be renewed. Not all countries have the same reciprocity terms so it’s very important that these are considered also. We’ve provided a full list on our website for your kind perusal.

    For details please see our presentation #7. By way of example, for British citizens, E2 visas can be issued for up to five years initially, and be renewed as many times as requested. Again, please review our reciprocity list so that you can see what your home country has arranged in terms of E2 visa periods and number of renewals permitted.

    Ok – In the next E2 investment visa presentation we’ll be discussing the employment opportunities for you, your spouse (including same-sex spouses) and children of E2 visa holders. Thank you for joining us and we hope you enjoyed this presentation...

    NEWS: New Zealand and Israel have recently been added to the list of E2 Qualifying Countries – we are awaiting the publication of the final terms; renewal times and as soon we have that we’ll add them to the list below.

    E2 Visa Success Story – Rebekah: What we love about Rebekah is that from the age of 18 she plucked up the courage to pursue her American dream to go FIDM – Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles, California. Having graduated from FIDM she wanted to stay in the US and begin building a career. After partnering with the Law Offices of Chris M. Ingram and with the support of her family she was able to qualify on her own for the E2 Investment Visa by starting her own business as a Wardrobe Stylist. At 23 years old she is our youngest E2 visa client and perhaps most inspiring because she has defied the odds and broken through into the LA “Red Carpet” scene – who does that! Norwich to LA. Congratulations!!!
