E Visas
(E1, E2 Visas - Treaty Traders and Treaty Investors.
E3 Visa for Australians)

The E visa category was established to give effect to treaties between those foreign countries and the United States that provide for reciprocal benefits to nationals of each country who conduct trade between the two countries (E1 Treaty Trader visa) or who invest in the other country (E2 Treaty Investor visa).

The LL.M. Law Group understands that obtaining a Treaty Trader or Treaty Investor visa to conduct trade or invest in the United States can sometimes be difficult. Please read below to learn more about how the LL.M. Law Group can help you.


E1 Treaty Trader Visa:

An E1 Treaty Trader visa is appropriate for nationals of a country with which the United States has an appropriate treaty of commerce and navigation or equivalent pact. The foreign national must be coming to the U.S. to carry on substantial trade, including trade in services or technology, chiefly between the U.S. and the treaty country. List of the Treaty Trader Countries eligible for E1 visa

The LL.M. Law Group can help obtain an E1 visa for the following people from a Treaty Trader country:

  • Executives, managers and specialists operating in the United States
  • Nationals entering the U.S. to carry out substantial trade
  • Key personnel to manage the U.S. affiliate or branch

The foreign national must be coming to the United States to direct and develop the operations of an enterprise in which they have invested, or are actively in the process of investing a substantial amount of capital.

E3 Visa for Australians (refer to the Questions and Answers page for more information):

E3 Visa is a new category of E treaty visa. E3 Visa allows for the admission into the United States of America of an alien who is a national of the Commonwealth of Australia, and who is entering to perform services in a "specialty occupation." This visa category was created specifically for 10,500 Australian business people and professionals seeking to live and work temporarily in the United States. The term "specialty occupation" means an occupation that requires theoretical and practical application of a body of highly specialized knowledge, and attainment of a bachelor's or higher degree in the specific specialty (or its equivalent) as a minimum for entry into the occupation in the United States. The definition is the same as the Immigration and Nationality Act definition of an H1B “specialty occupation.”

The LL.M. Law Group can help obtain an E3 visa to the following applicants from the Commonwealth of Australia:

  • Nationals of the Commonwealth of Australia traveling to the United States to perform services in a "specialty occupation." Examples include scientists, engineers, research analysts, management consultants, accountants, and other professionals with a Bachelor's degree or equivalent

  • Australian business people and professionals seeking to live and work temporarily in the United States. Examples include executives, managers and specialists operating in the United States

  • Australian Nationals entering the U.S. to carry out substantial trade

  • Key personnel to manage the U.S. affiliate or branch

  • Family members of E3 visa holders

  • U.S. companies employing qualified foreign professionals for jobs that require a Bachelor's degree and specialized skills

  • Australian Nationals seeking change of status from H1B to an E3 visa  

  • Australian Nationals seeking renewal of their current E3 visa status
