What is a good business for an E-2 investor visa?

An E-2 visa is for investors from certain countries. There is no minimum investment amount, but it must be substantial and not marginal. That means the investment must be enough to support the investor and impact the U.S. economically. Having employees in your business helps reduce the amount of investment needed.

Some examples of franchises under $100,000:

  • Homecare agencies/senior care services

  • Insurance companies

  • Tutoring services

  • Cleaning services

  • Beauty/Wellness Franchise

  • Plumbing/Electric services

  • Home/Commercial painting services

The list of possibilities is endless.  Purchasing a franchise is a faster and more secure way to get an E-2 for the investor, spouse, and minor children (under 21 years of age).

Even for online businesses, a minimum investment of $100,000 is necessary. However, this requirement can be met with diligent expense tracking and prudent financial management. This might involve purchasing equipment, securing office space, covering legal fees, hiring staff, obtaining a website domain, marketing your business, acquiring inventory, or ensuring operational stability. By demonstrating your ability to manage your finances effectively, you can bolster your E-2 visa application and feel confident in your investment journey.
