Participating Countries

Another requirement of the E-1 visa is that the investor must be a national of a treaty country and a requisite treaty must exist between the US and the foreign country of the foreign national.  Please see the US Department of State website to see if a treaty exists in your home country under the E-2 visa category.


Adding Dependents

In America, immigration through E visas may be regarded as a possible route to permanent residency in the US, or otherwise, US residency for a period of some years. As a result, the spouse and or dependents of successful applicants are permitted to migrate to the USA along with the principle applicant. Whilst derivative E visas do not in themselves provide the right to work in America, an applicant's spouse may apply separately for an EAD card for Employment Authorisation. Whilst dependent children under the age of 21 will be permitted to enter the country, they will not be allowed to work under this US immigration service.
