The E-2 visa is a non-immigrant visa that's available to citizens of certain countries, there are about 130 countries that the US has treaties with. And if you're a citizen from one of those treaty countries and you're willing to come to the US, you want to make an investment in a US business, particularly one that will create jobs and it's going to be a real business. An E-2 visa is an option for you. The advantage is you can bring your family. It doesn't give you a green card, it does allow you to stay, generally, in two-year increments. It's flexible in that it gives you a foot in the door and you can later on, depending on your circumstances, change to another visa category including those that would allow you to get a green card.
