HOW LONG WILL MY E-1/E-2 VISA BE VALID?
The validity period for E-1 and E-2 visas can vary based on the terms of the reciprocity agreements between the United States and the applicant’s home country. Typically:
E-1 Visa: The initial validity can range from a few months to several years, and extensions can be granted in increments of up to five years. However, the exact duration may depend on the nature of the trade and commerce activities.
E-2 Visa: The initial validity often varies, but it can also be extended in increments of up to five years. The length of validity may be influenced by the nature of the investment and the success of the business.
It’s important to note that visa validity is determined on a case-by-case basis, and applicants should check with the U.S. embassy or consulate and review the specific terms of the visa for accurate information. Additionally, individuals can often remain in the U.S. for as long as their E status is valid, even if the visa in their passport has expired.
