I am very happy to announce all E-2 treaty investor visas that we filed last year and through the first quarter of 2015 have been approved. Each investment was in a small business in the hospitality, retail or sporting industry. We are very happy for our clients.
The E-2 nonimmigrant classification allows a national of a treaty country (a country with which the United States maintains a treaty of commerce and navigation) to be admitted to the United States when investing a substantial amount of capital in a U.S. business. Certain employees of such a person or of a qualifying organization may also be eligible for this classification.
