E-1 Investor Visa

What is the Treaty Trader Visa?

The E-1 treaty investor visa is a non-immigrant visa which allows foreign entrepreneurs from treaty nations to enter into the United States to develop and direct an enterprise that they have invested in and also allows for executive/supervisory and essential employees of a company to come to the Unites States to fulfill their duties.
