    This is so well-written and understandable. I wish it could be published. I think we all would have a much better idea of what's really going on. I'm looking forward to more.

    immigrant investor visa

    Are you perhaps confusing the EB2 with the EB5 visa? To my understanding, the EB2 does not require any investment at all, only that the potential immigrant meet certain job based I mistaken?


    What is the minmujm investement required please?

    This is a great post. I feel if it somehow was able to gain more exposure to the foreign market it would greatly help out many people looking to expand and eventually live in the US. Nice sound information.

    So how does a E-2 holder switch to a different visa catagory. I have been here since 1991, have 20 employees and want to become a US LPR...please tell me how?

    My apologies Nina. I meant to use the word "premise". In any event, I'm on your side. I feel that it's an injustice for those foreign nationals who invest a great deal of money in the U.S. and are not allowed to ultimately stay on a permanent basis. That was the main point I was trying to make.

    "In short, although the E-2 visa category is a viable way for a foreign national to gain entry into the United States under the guise of making a significant investment"

    Excuse me? E2 is real investment. How dare you use the word guise, as if we were trying to trick or lie our way in? Anyway, after the fist renewal, it's every 5 years if the business is solid, like mine. It's a travesty that those who invest in the USA cannot stay. We are treated worse than illegals.
