On September 6, 2012, another Lin & Valdez client received the E-2 treaty investor visa from the US Consulate in Sydney, Australia. With the quick approval to the E2 visa, our client is on her way back to the US today (September 8, 2012).
Our client in this case is an Australian who invested in a beauty salon in Georgia. The uniqueness of this case is that our client’s investment amount is relative low compared with other E-2 investors. Also, a part of the invested capital is from gift of the client’s relative. Despite of these shortcomings, we were able to help the client build a solid application and convince the US Consulate in Sydney for the grant of the applied E-2 visa. The application package was received by the US consulate in late July. No request for additional document was made by the consulate, the interview went smoothly and the visa was granted right away. Our client has boarded a return flight and is on her way back to the US to operate her business two days after the interview.
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, 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!
