Overview of the E-1 Treaty Trader Visa

For investors engaged in substantial trade with the United States, an E1 Treaty Trader Visa business plan is required to be submitted alongside your application for your E1 Visa. As one of the world’s strongest economies, the United States offers unique opportunities for companies seeking to commit to high-volume trade between it and their home country. Following the end of the Great Recession, investors from the United States’ 78 treaty partner nations have begun to recognize the value of America’s growing pool of consumers, and, through the E1 Visa, they are able to reach a massive audience and engage in business opportunities that might not be available in their home countries.

E-1 Visa Requirements

Immigration to the United States can be an extremely difficult process, and for many, a temporary, non-immigrant visa, like the E1 Treaty Trader Visa is the best option. Once this visa is obtained, the maximum length of time that the applicant can remain in the United States is two years, after which the applicant is required to apply for an extension if they wish to stay. The basic criteria for an E1 Visa applicant include:

The ability to demonstrate substantial trade between the United States and the applicant’s home country.

Sufficient prior knowledge and expertise in the chosen industry to conduct trade.

Past experience with trading between the applicant’s home country and the United States.

Assurance that transactions will be of substantial dollar value.

At least 50% of the applicant’s international transactions must be between the applicant’s home country and the U.S.

The applicant and any staff members must be willing to vacate the United States upon the expiration of their E1 Visa.
