The E non-immigrant visas are for foreign nationals from countries having a commerce treaty with the U.S. E-l (treaty traders) requires the majority of the company's trade between the foreign treaty country and the United States. E-2 (treaty investors) requires "substantial" investment in the U.S., depending on the nature of the business. The E non-immigrant visa is usually granted for a five-year period. It can be extended indefinitely as long as the U.S. Company continues to operate its business
