Only countries that have treaties with the U.S. Can apply for the E-2. Goto http://travel.state.gov/visa/fees/fees_3726.html to determine if you come from a treaty country.
Choose whether it is an E-1 or E-2
An E-1 is for a Treaty-Trader and an E-2 is for a Treaty-Investor. The E-2 is much more concerned with the investment and the amount of the investment and the E-1 is much more concerned with the prior trading of the two companies.
Get Proof of Funds
Whether it is the E-1 or E-2, you need to get proof of where the investment came from. This is much more important in the E-2. However, it is necessary to show that they are your funds and that it came from a legal source and that it was transferred from your account.
Get all supporting documents
You must carefully prepare all elements necessary for the E-2 and show proof that each element is met. Thus, be sure to documents each element with supporting evidence.
