Complex requirementsComplex requirementsComplex requirements


The official requirements for U.S. visa applicants are often formulated at a rather abstract level and are open to interpretation. Also, the published texts do not reveal additional criteria that are necessary for success.

Understanding the intricacies based on successful cases

VisaLex consultants ensure the highest quality of advice, which is achieved through years of experience working with clients on the E-2 program and numerous successful cases.

Our immigration attorneys from an affiliated law firm do far more than clarify the published E-2 visa requirements for you; they also share their hard-won expertise about tacit indicators that visa officers and the consul pay close attention to and which details you need to include to convince them to approve your petition.



Many E-2 visa seekers choose a U.S. business to invest in based solely on their own preferences, forgetting that their E-2 visa will be valid only as long as the business is successful. Many applicants also fail to take into account other requirements about the nature of the business that receives the investment.

Advice on investment plans from the perspective of immigration authorities

VisaLex consultants help you carefully assess your investment plan from the USCIS perspective. Together, we will explore critical business questions such as: How much risk does your planned investment entail? Is the business based on a lease agreement? Will you need to spend money on equipment? Does the business expect to continue operating in the U.S. or will it be forced to move elsewhere for legal, logistical, or other reasons?

This thorough analysis will enable you to either confirm your choice of business or explore other investments that will yield a stronger E-2 visa petition.



E-2 applications require extensive supportive documentation: contract information, bank statements, proof of investment funds origin, and so on. All documents must be submitted in English, and they need to be both accurate and complete.

Certified translation and ease of management

The VisaLex platform provides a convenient documentation management system that clearly indicates which documents are strictly necessary & which are only recommended, as well as which documents are already attached to your petition and which still need to be provided.

As you upload a document, you can request translation from any language into English in one click; the service will be provided by a certified translator.

Business plan


An E-2 visa application must contain a detailed business plan for achieving commercial success. Creating a strong and convincing document requires specific skills and a detailed understanding of both the state of the market and the nature of the specific business you are investing in.

Professionally prepared E-2 business plan

Visalex has the knowledge and experience needed to draft the most compelling document. Unlike many other agencies, we do not use a standard template for all customers. Instead, we work to develop the strongest possible E-2 business plan for you, based on the specifics of the business you invest in and its market niche. Our consultants will carefully analyze your business and ensure that all essential details about its assets, processes, plans, and strategies are included.
