E-2 Treaty Investor Visa
Sample Success Story: E-2 Visa Granted by the US Consulate in Romania to Our Client

On May 31, 2011, the US Consulate in Romania granted E-2 visas to our client and his families for an investment in one southwestern state of the US.  Our clients are actually of Belgium nationality.  However, as they maintained residence in Romania before the application, the application was filed to the US Consulate in Romania. The E-2 investment involves:



E-2 Business

HVAC (Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning) services; supplying portable and fixed installation air conditioning equipment, maintenance, and cleaning.


One of southwestern state


Purchase existing business

Amount of Investment

$350,000.00 cash investment, and $150,000.00 Seller financing

Number of employees


Other Remarkable




In this case, we work closely with a business broker our client retained and provided our legal opinion about the business acquisition throughout the process.  The business purchase took about 4 months to complete.  Our client (and the families) will travel to the US in a few days with the newly granted visa US to operate his business.         


Over the years, Lin & Valdez has applied for countless numbers of E-2 cases.  The investments our clients made for the applications are in a wide range of businesses, including: beauty salon restaurant, camera shop, doughnut shop, supermarket, gas station, convenience store, trading company, day care, bridal service, professional service, hotel/motel, computer company, franchise store, art gallery, law office, gymnasium, shoe store, HVAC service companies, and granite and stone business, etc.  We have established ourselves a premier E-2 investment visa practitioner.  If you are from one of the E-2 countries and are interested in coming to the US with this flexible visa status, or changing your status to E-2 in the US, please contact us immediately.  The help you need is just a click away!
