The most difficult part of obtaining an E1 or E2 visa is determining and then proving that your investment is substantial and already at risk in the United States. To do this, you must submit a number of financial and legal documents to the US Consulate, and this process can take from four to six weeks.
However, once you have gotten approval for your own visa, getting visas for your employees is much simpler. Being able to bring some of your best workers and advisors can help you better manage your business and improve its performance, so this may be a very attractive option for you. The E1/E2 visa program allows employee visas for executives/managers and essential workers.
Executives and Managers
These are individuals who will help you develop and direct your investment in America. When submitting their Form DS-156E, make sure they include a resume that shows their management experience as well as a letter of support from you.
The US government also allows visas for essential workers, but there are more requirements. You will have to prove:
- The position can’t be filled by a US worker.
- The individual is uniquely suited for the position.
- US employees will eventually be trained to take on this position.
