An investor visa, also known as a business visa, allows you to invest and work in your own business in the USA. The four types of visas are the E1 Visa, E2 Visa, L1A Visa and the EB5 Visa. This is a brief summary of each:
- E1 Visa – This is the import/export visa. To qualify your business must involve international trade, in other words, the importation or exportation of products or services between the USA and your country of nationality. Also, to qualify your country of nationality must be included on the E1 Country List.
- E2 Visa – This is an investor visa for those seeking to start their own business in the USA. This visa is known as the small investor visa because the minimum investment is between $50,000 and $100,000 USD. To qualify your country of nationality must be included on the E2 Country List.
- L1A Visa – This investor visa is to transfer the investor, the business owner, to run his/her business in the USA. The L1A investor visa requires that the investor own a business outside the USA, and that the investor work in the USA in a high-level corporate position, such as an executive or a manager. How much to invest for the L1A Visa? The L1A visa does not require a minimum investment amount. Instead the investment amount is flexible. The requirement is that you invest the amount required to afford to have enough employees to be an executive or a manager in the USA.
- EB5 Visa – This investor visa option requires a minimum investment of $500,000 USD and the creation of 10 jobs in the USA. Also, the funds invested in the USA must come from a lawful source. EB5 applicant investors may invest in their own business in the USA, or in an investment fund called an “EB5 Regional Center”. These EB5 Regional Centers invest your money in a project (such as the construction of a new hotel, an office building or an apartment complex). The jobs created by the EB5 Regional Center using the investor’s money are credited to the investor so that the investor can meet the requirement to create 10 jobs.
