In order to strengthen amicable relationships with countries that seek to conduct business operations in the United States, our government created non-immigrant work visas for companies and individuals from certain countries which possess diplomatic treaties and reciprocal trade agreements with our country. The E visa classification was established in the early 1800s as a product of complex diplomatic relations and a prosperous history of cooperation, development, and mutual economic growth between the U.S. and other nations around the world.

With more than decade of experience, he possesses the comprehensive understanding of U.S. immigration law in order to obtain your E visa.
There are two types of E visas: the Treaty Trader (E-1) and the Treaty Investor (E-2) visa. Both visa applicants must meet certain requirements to qualify for each under U.S. immigration law, which is determined by the consular officer.
Eligibility requirements for a Treaty Trader (E-1) visa include:
Eligibility requirements for a Treaty Investor (E-2) visa include:
To qualify and secure E visas, the sponsoring organization (individual or corporation) must register initially with the U.S. Embassy abroad. Once the registration is approved, each applicant can apply for the E visa through a standard visa interview processing at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate abroad.
Company registration processing times and procedures and individual visa wait times vary depending on the Embassy, which is why it is imperative to retain legal services from an experienced immigration attorney.
In order to obtain these E visas, they require a significant amount of qualifying evidence and legal steps to be taken. Our Phoenix immigration attorney is dedicated to helping establish your business venture in the United States and making sure it thrives by offering legal protections.
