Treaty Traders and E-1 Visas

Trade treaties play a vital role in the global economy. They facilitate the movement of people and goods across borders. Businesspersons who travel from one treaty nation to another may have access to special visa options not available to the general public. If you hail from a country that has a trade treaty with the United States, and need to remain in the U.S. for a long period of time, you may be able to do so by obtaining an E-1 visa.

Applicants for E-1 visas must complete a complex application process to take advantage of this opportunity. At the Law Office of William Jang, PLLC, we are prepared to assist treaty traders from every part of the world to apply for E-1 status. Contact us at 512-323-2333 today to discuss your current immigration needs.

Who is Eligible for E-1 Visas?

The U.S. has trade treaties with dozens of countries around the world. Some of these treaties allow members of a nation’s business community to apply for E-1 residential status in the United States. E-1 visas apply to business traders and corporate travelers, but not international financial investors, for whom there is a different category of visa. The following people may be eligible for E-1 visas:

  • Business executives
  • Necessary business personnel
  • Spouses of business travelers
  • Children of business travelers

An E-1 visa allows you to remain in the country for years at a time, in two-year increments. Spouses may seek legal employment, and children may attend schools. Usually, an E-1 visa is renewable as long as the trade treaty is in effect and the visa holder is engaged in a treaty-sanctioned business.
