Both the E-1 and the E-2 are critical in fostering domestic and overseas business growth.
(PRWEB) May 01, 2017
After speaking last month of the E-2 Visa’s enduring importance, Steven Buchwald today weighed in on news that New Zealand is lobbying for E2 and E1 Visa Access - and that former Trump campaign field director Stuart Jolly has been recruited to help make it happen.
Buchwald, who also operates The E-2 Visa Lawyer- a service geared towards overseas entrepreneurs and startup investors - feels that this represents still more evidence of the E-2 Visa’s continued importance.
According to Buchwald, there is a close relationship between the E-2 Visa and the E-1 Visa. Known as the Treaty Trader Visa, the E-1 is primarily tied to trade, while the E-2 is designed for investment. The E-1 visa allows foreign nationals to enter the United States to foster substantial trade between their country and the US.
“Both the E-1 and the E-2 are critical in fostering domestic and overseas business growth,” explained Buchwald. “It’s therefore little surprise to me that New Zealand is lobbying for both at once. It has been attempting to negotiate a trade agreement with the United States for several years.”
Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States from the Trans-Pacific Partnership could, Buchwald continued, be a blessing in disguise for traders and investors alike. Many countries that were not previously being considered for membership in the E-1 and E-2 program are now on the radar. This in turn could mean that many investors who previously were ineligible for immigration to the United States on the basis of either a US investment or substantial trade might finally get a chance to obtain a visa.
For his part, Buchwald said that he will continue to provide aid to any investors who wish to apply for an E-2 visa.
