At Nipren, we partner with immigration attorneys to create investment strategies and business plans to support your E-2 Visa application process.

For foreign entrepreneurs who want to start a business in the U.S. and work in that business from the U.S., there are two options: the E-2 “Treaty Investor” and the E-1 “Treaty Trader”.

One of the most important part of the process is showing that you will participate in the American economy and create jobs. You must also show that you are in the process or have invested effectively before applying.

Your financial statements are critical to your application and will tell this story for you.

OUR PROCESS

Here is our step by step process to help you present your business in the best possible light when applying for your visa:

COACH YOU THROUGH THE INVESTMENT PHASE AND ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MIGHT HAVE

You will need to be prepared in a variety of areas to see if you meet the visa criteria.

Assuming you haven’t started investing in your business yet (or are still in the process), we determine the investment needed, actions to take and documents to prepare to show your business is ready to be operated.

We will talk through your investment and all other important areas of the process to be sure you are well-prepared.

  • Revenue and expenses

SUCCESS STORY

“You don’t want to invest and not be able to run your business because you could not obtain your E-2 Visa.

I was glad I had a good lawyer and Nipren to assist me and help me to minimize the financial risks while guiding me through the application and building my case.”
