What is a E1 Visa for Employees?
Work Visa for Employees of E1 Visa Holders
The E1 Visa is most commonly used by owners of companies in the import/export business, but employees of E1 Visa holders can also use it as a work visa. E1 Visa holders use the E1 Employee Visa to bring foreign workers to the US to work for their US operations. To qualify, first the employee must have the same nationality as the E1 Visa holder they will work for in the US. Secondly, the employee must be coming to the US to work as an executive, manager or as a key employee. For more information about the E1 Visas, call our office to schedule a consultation with one of our immigration lawyers.

There are 3 main requirements to obtaining the E1 Employee Visa:
1. Job Offer from E1 Visa Holder
The most important requirement to obtain an E1 Employee visa is to be offered a job from someone who has the E1 Visa, or from someone who at least qualifies to get the E1 Visa for him/herself. To learn about the E1 Visa requirements see our ‘E1 Visa’ page under “Investor Visas’.
2. Job Offer as Executive, Manager or Key Employee
The E1 Employee visa is only for high-level personnel such as executives and managers. Key employees also qualify. A key employee is one that possesses specialized skills that are valuable and necessary for the business to operate.
3. Same Nationality as E1 Visa Holder
The person applying for the E1 Employee Visa and the E1 Visa holder making the job offer must have the same nationality. For example, if the E1 Visa holder offering the job is Canadian, the E1 Employee must also be Canadian.
Applying for the E1 Employee Visa is a simple process that has the following steps:
1. Document Checklist
Once you hire our law firm, our immigration attorney will prepare a very detailed checklist of the documents needed to prepare the E1 Employee Visa application. This checklist is the most important part of the application, because it explains exactly which documents will be needed to apply for the E1 employee visa.
2. Application Prepared
Once the attorney has received the requested documents, we will prepare the E1 Employee Visa application.
3. Interview with US Consulate
The last step of the E1 Employee Visa process is the visa interview. Once the application is ready, we will schedule the interview appointment, for the applicant and immediate family, at a US Consulate. Prior to this interview, our immigration attorney will prepare the applicant for the visa interview.
1. How long does the E1 Visa for Employees last?
Generally, the E1 Employee Visa can be issued for up to 5 years at a time. It can also be renewed in increments of up to 5 years. More importantly, there is no limit to the number of times the E1 Employee Visa can be renewed.
