E2 Visa Lawyers Role in the US Business Application Process

E-2 Visa for InvestorsQ. Hi I wish to open a convenience store in the US. I am a Canadian citizen and have about $100,000 to invest. How can an immigration lawyer help me with the E2 Visa application?


A. As with all other US Visa Applicants, lawyers can play a very important role in managing the entire E2 visa application process from providing the necessary list of documentation and information, to preparing the required Visa application forms and advising applicants about their interview with the US Consulate. E2 Visa cases require a significant amount of documentation to demonstrate that applicants have a viable business in the US, have made a substantial investment in the US  etc.

Moreover, if there are problems with the application, your immigration lawyer should be able to respond to the US Consulate or Service Center in an effective and timely manner to address any concerns that arise. Finally, there are certain technicalities associated with E2 Visa applications in terms of reentry to the US after issuance.  Some of these issues have already been addressed in previous E2 visa blogs here and here.

Any information provided here does not constitute legal advice and is intended for general information only. Should you require legal advise, you are encouraged to contact a lawyer directly. All blog postings are public and are not subject to solicitor/client confidentially. Case results depend on a variety of factors unique to each case, and case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any further case undertaken by the lawyer.
