When you are applying for an E2 investor’s visa, one of the first things you need to do is to decide what type of E2 visa business you want to start. When you are making this decision, it is important to consider not only what types of businesses interest you, but you should also choose a business that compliments your skills and experience.
There is an entire tab in the E2 visa application binder that includes the applicant’s resume and diplomas. This is in order to prove to the Consulate that you are qualified to run the type of enterprise you are starting. This reassures the Consulate officer that the business will be a success because it is being run by someone who has knowledge and experience in that business area.
Some examples of types of E2 visa businesses you can open include:
- Spa/ Salon
- Gas Station
- IT Business
- Real Estate Business (requires a large amount of capital)
- Business for the Sale of Goods
- Any other Non-Profit business in which you have knowledge and experience
