Course Description

Time 62 minutes
Difficulty Advanced

As capital has become increasingly fluid across international borders, individual and corporate foreign investors have struggled with traditional employment-based immigration options to move talent into the United States. For companies located within the jurisdiction of the United States' traditional trade partners, the E-2 visa category offers an efficient and low cost option to move existing talent from the investing entity into the United States to oversee the investment or deliver the company's services. In this course, Fragomen attorney Josiah Curtis addresses the intricacies of the E-2 visa category. 

 

Learning Objectives: 

I.     Understand the legal criteria for E-2 sponsorship

II.    Identify the process for preparing and filing applications for both initial E-2 registrations 

III.   Recognize subsequent applications to renew this registration
