    You can do it- get a lawyer!

  4. #4
    Only if he has several American employees. A sole practitioner does not qualify. Remember an E-2 must make a significant investment in the U.S.

    You don't have to have several employees to get an initial E-2. You may have to have them to get an extension, though.

    The significant investment is "relative."

    Your a lawyer muhan- reach out to friends and colleagues and ask for recommendations for a good immigration attorney who specializes in E-2 investment visas.

    By the way- what nationality are you? Not everyone can get an E2-must be one of the treaty countries.

  8. #8
    Wrong, if you don't have a significant investment and employees, you may be arrested and placed in removal proceedings. E-2s are notorious in Honolulu for one man offices of all sorts of businesses and they are arrested quite frequently.

    Why E-2 which is a nonimmigrant visa? Why not EB-1 or EB-2 with National Interest Waiver (NIW) request which is a shorter route to permanent residency? I've seen some licensed lawyers taking this route and succeeding.
