When did the E2 & E1 Visas become available for German Nationals
On July 14th, 1956 the E1 Treaty Trader Visa and the E2 Treaty Investor Visa became available for nationals of Germany. This enabled German citizens to capitalize on the many opportunities that the United States has to offer. Thousands of entrepreneurs and investors have started businesses in the U.S., while others have purchased businesses and franchises. This has provided German nationals with a better quality of life and has boosted the U.S. economy and created numerous jobs for U.S. workers.
What the E2 Visa does for Nationals of Germany
The nation of Germany has a treaty with the U.S. which grants German nationals the opportunity to obtain E2 visas. The E2 visa is a non-immigrant visa that is issued for a maximum of 5 years (60 months). It is quite typical for an E2 visa to be issued for 2 years (not 5), and for nationals of Germany, assuming you still qualify, you can renew the E2 visa indefinitely. All E2 visa applications must be submitted with a comprehensive 5-year business plan. The E2 Visa Business Plan must include 5-year financial projections, a market and industry analysis, competitor analysis, an executive summary, a 5-year hiring plan, and much more. The E2 visa investment amount must be substantial but varies depending on the type of business or franchise you start or purchase.

JDC Consultancy Client Review – US Consulate in Germany
I am very happy that I hired Jason to support me with my E2 immigration business plan! He has done a very satisfying job, especially by conducting extensive research about the agricultural business in the United States, to help me analyze my future competition. My application got approved after a short interview at the US-embassy in Germany with a side note made that it has been well prepared – I received a 5 year E-2 visa which is quite unusual these days and a testament to the JDC business plan.
A big part of this success I grant to Jason for doing such a great job since the business plan is one of the most important items within the visa application. If anyone is looking for professional support through an immigration business plan I highly recommend to hire Jason!
Thank you very much for your help, you did a great job!
