Concurrent filing allows an investor to file for their Adjustment / Green Card at the same time or any time after filing the I-526 EB-5 Petition. A major advantage is that an investor can now legally stay inside the United States while waiting for this petition to be adjudicated. In the past, the investor would either need to wait outside of the United States or find a nonimmigrant visa to allow him or her to wait inside the United States. In addition, this filing also provides work authorization and travel authorization for the investor while he or she waits for their green card inside the United States.

The E-2 Treaty Investor is a nonimmigrant visa, there are pathways for obtaining a green card available for both the investor and their spouse.
USCIS provided guidance on extending and changing status during COVID-19. Because many countries have travel restrictions in place, it is likely that H1B laid-off employees cannot return to their home countries during the 60-day grace period. During those 60 days, laid-off H-1B employees can apply for a change of status or an extension of status. If you are a national of an E-2 eligible country, the E-2 visa may be one option to stay in the United States and to build your own business.
What is the E-2 Visa?
The E-2 visa is available to nationals from certain “treaty countries”; a full list of treaty countries can be found on the Department of States’ Website. The visa is essentially for foreign investors looking to start a business in the United States; the visa has traditionally been popular amongst startup founders and small business owners. The visa requires the investor to invest a “substantial amount” of capital and the business operations must produce more than a “marginal” income; this means that the E-2 enterprise must create jobs for U.S. workers. Unlike the EB-5 visa, there is not minimum number of jobs that must be created for each investment.
What if I am not from a “Treaty Country”?
There are some notable absences in the list of E-2 treaty countries, including China, South Africa, Venezuela, India, and Vietnam. However, our office is working in conjunction with immigration professional throughout the world to provide innovative solution for nationals of countries that are not E-2 eligible.
The Darren Silver & Associates team is proud to announce that we now work with professionals in Turkey and Grenada to provide a relatively swift path to Turkish citizenship, which in turn can lead to an E-2 visa.
What about my Spouse & Children?
Your spouse and children under the age of 21 can accompany you to the United States; only the primary investor is required to have citizenship in an E-2 eligible country. Furthermore, your spouse can receive Employment Authorization and legally work in the United States at the job of their choosing. Your child is free to attend school without adjusting their status.
Franchise Options: If you are an individual looking to purchase an existing business or franchise, then our team can provide options for you as well. Our team works closely with reputable companies that will find, vet, and perform a due diligence analysis on potential E-2 businesses.
