Visas E-2 – Proposed Bill to expand benefits for E-2 Visa Holders

Visas E-2 – Proposed Bill to expand benefits for E-2 Visa Holders

Last week Congressman John Rutherford, introduced a Bill that focuses on expanding benefits for E-2 visa holders. The E-2 Visa does not provide a direct path to citizenship nor does it provide status for minor children once they turn 21 years of age. Which means that when they turn 21, unless they have made a change of status, these young people have to return to their countries of origin.

If approved, the Proposed Bill will provide 2 important benefits:

  1. Create a path for legal permanent residency after 10 years of being in the United States; and
  2. It will allow minor children to extend their status as E-2 visa holders until they are 26 years of age; and will be able to apply for a work permit.

Obviously, this proposal will have to be approved to become Law. Any questions about the eligibility of business visas for Investors do not hesitate to call us.
