E2 visas are visas under which investors may live & conduct specified businesses in the US. These businesses are available to nationals of Iran, as Iranians signed a commerce treaty with the United States in 1958.
E2 visas may be applied under certain forms of corporation. The corporation must be owned by the nationals of the treaty country. The nationality of a corporation is determined by the nationality of the share- holders.
The treaty investor, however, must hold controlling interests. This means the investor would have minimum of 50% of shares and an executive or otherwise a managerial position in the company.
E2 visas are complex & their applications entail great deal of attention to business details. Make sure to contact our office today prior to applying, as the application process can get lengthy and complicated.
