Employees of E-2 Treaty Investors
Apply for a Work Visa with a Skilled Columbus Immigration Lawyer
If you are an employee of an E-2 treaty investor, you may be able to obtain a visa to work in the United States. You must meet specific criteria to qualify, however, and your application must be filed properly and in a timely manner if you are to have any chance of approval. That is where our Columbus immigration attorneys can make all the difference. With our experience in this field, along with our technologically-advanced approach and understanding of volatile immigration laws and proceedings, we can effectively represent your interests.
Qualifications as an Employee of an E-2 Treaty Investor
The following qualifications will apply if you want to obtain a work visa as an employee of an E-2 treaty investor:
- You must be in an executive or supervisory position or have such duties, which make you responsible for a significant part or all of the enterprise’s operation; or
- You must have special qualifications or skills that are proven to be essential to the enterprise’s operation; and
- You must be of the same nationality as your employer, or if the employer is an organization as opposed to an individual, such an organization must be at least 50% owned by persons of that nationality.
Is an E-2 Visa Right for You?
As an employee, an E-2 visa may be right for you if you meet the qualifications set forth above, but it is important to understand that there may be other options. An EB-5 or L-1B visa may be more appropriate, depending on your unique situation.
