My wife and I are both with A2 Visa and stationed in NY.
My wife is my dependent and is working for an American company. This company is now offering my wife a chance to apply for an E1 visa under the sponsorship of this company.
In order to apply for the E1, she needs to forfeit her A2 visa and by that require me to quite my mission and forfeit my A2 as well.
My questions are:
1. What kind of visa will we have when forfeiting the A2? Is it reverting back to our regular "tourist" visa?
2. What are the chances to be declined for an E1? Are there any specific terms to be aware of?
3. We understand that we can accomplish the E1 application from NY without returning to our home country and finalize the process on the first visit. Is that correct?
Thank you all!
