Can I Get a Green Card from an E-2 Visa?

What is an E-2 Visa?

An E-2 visa is a non immigrant U.S. work visa that may be granted for “substantial” investments in the U.S. An investment must meet several criteria in order to qualify for an E-2 visa.

How to qualify for an E-2 visa

In order to qualify for the E-2 Visa as an investor, you have to:

• Show that a “substantial” investment or funds is available
committed to the investment;
• The investment must be for an active business as opposed to
passive investment such as purchasing a home;
• At least 50% of the business must be owned by the foreigner
from a country which has a treaty with the United States;
• The investment must create enough profit to provide a living for
more than just the applicant and his/her family.

Can I Get a Green Card from an E-2 Visa?

There is no direct path to get a green card from an E-2 visa, but there are options. For example, if you have a job offer, you can apply for an H-1B Visa and then convert the H-1B Visa to a green card. The other option is an EB-1C for multinational managers or executives. So if you’re on an E-2 visa and you have an affiliate business outside of the US, you can qualify for this category where you apply for green card on that basis.
