Giulia commented:Michael and his associates were instrumental in securing my E2 visa earlier this year. I was always kept very up to date and well informed throughout the entire process, and he always maintained the utmost professionalism. There were no issues with securing my visa because of the diligent and thorough work of the team, and because of that, I was able to maintain a stress free environment at work and home because I was always reassured there was nothing to worry about. Thank you to Michael and the team for giving me such a great experience!

Treaty Investor (E-2) classification is for citizens of countries with which the United States maintains treaties of commerce and navigation.  In order to qualify for this classification the applicant must be entering the United States individually or as the qualified employee of a company to solely develop and direct the operations of an enterprise in which a substantial amount of capital has been invested, or is actively in the process of being invested.  Further, the applicant must show that 1) the investment is “substantial”, 2) the enterprise is a real operating commercial enterprise and 3) the enterprise is more than a marginal one solely for earning a living.
