The E-1 / E-2 are temporary, nonimmigrant visas based on a bilateral commercial treaty or other agreements between the U.S. and the applicant’s country of nationality (citizenship). A spouse and unmarried children under the age of 21 may accompany or follow to join the principal applicant. An E-2 spouse is eligible for work authorization, and E-2 dependents can attend school in the U.S.
E-2 VISA & EB-5 An E-2 visa does not automatically transition into EB-5 but can be established through viable projects meeting specific requirements. What is important is that there is no minimum time requirement for an investor to stay in E-2 status and that the E-2 capital investment may be counted towards the EB-5 requirement.
The L visa is granted to an individual who was employed by a foreign company for one year continuously, within the last three years of the L application. The foreign company must have a link either as a parent, branch, affiliate, or subsidiary of the U.S. petitioning company. The principal applicant can bring a spouse and unmarried children under the age of 21 (L-2s). An L-2 spouse is eligible for work authorization.
The Multinational Executives and Mangers (EB-1C) is a first preference immigrant petition for priority workers ultimately leading to a green card. The company must have a foreign entity, and must be “doing business” in the U.S. for one year. No labor certification is needed for this visa. Comparison between E-2 and EB-5.
