Immigration to the USA for entrepreneurs

If you and your spouse only have the citizenship of non-treaty, and at the same time don't want to buy a Grenada passport for 150K USD — look towards O-1, L-1, EB-5, and you can skip this post.

E-2 — small investor visa. You invest in your business in the USA, and in return, you can live, work and earn money there. Usually issued for 2 to 5 years with the possibility of renewal an unlimited number of times, provided that the business is running successfully. The number of entries / exits from the country may vary.

A family

Husband, wife, and unmarried children under 21 can all get a visa and work permit.


The minimum investment amount is 80K USD. And about 15K USD for the whole process of obtaining: a business plan, company registration, immigration lawyers, expedited processing fee, and consular fees. Around 5K USD from this amount can be deducted from the invested amount.


The whole process can be organized in 3 months — one and a half outside the USA, one and a half in the USA.


The origin of the money invested will need to be confirmed. Where they come from isn't important as long as it's within the law, and you can prove it.

This is a non-immigrant visa — to immigrate, you need to take a few more steps. We are talking about a future change of status to EB-5.

Optimal plan

We find trusted immigration lawyers and discuss all the details. We prepare the necessary documents. We get a tourist visa to the USA and fly there. Being there, we complete the preparation of the case and submit it. We are getting E-2 status and developing business. We live, work, extend the visa as many times as necessary, accumulate the total amount of investments in our business 1M+ USD, and apply for an EB-5 visa. We get EB-5 — we get a Greed Card, and after five years, we become the owner of a US passport.
