Two E-2 Visa Investors in the Same Company?

Can two investors successfully apply for an E-2 visa in the same E-2 enterprise in the United States?

Yes, but only if the following conditions are met:

  • Each investor must own 50% of the E-2 enterprise (50%/50%)
  • Each investor must make a “substantial” investment. (Typically at least $100,000)
  • The amount invested by each of the investors should be the same or similar
  • Each investor must have a clearly defined role in the E-2 company that requires active management, direction, and development of its operations.
  • Each investor must be from an E-2 treaty country, but they don’t have to be from the same one.

To reduce the risk of rejection in a two-investor approach, you might also consider a strategy wherein only one of the two investors applies for an E-2 visa at the start. Then, once that investor is approved and opens the E-2 visa business, the second investor could apply for an E-2 visa independently either as an additional investor or as an essential employee of the company.
