Business persons wishing to come to the United States to further their own business interests, plus certain of their employees and their families also, can secure a visa to either guide operations between the US and his/her home country, or to invest in a business in the U.S.
E-1 visa holders are entitled to enter the United States under, and in pursuance of, the provisions of a treaty of commerce and navigation between the US and his/her foreign state solely to carry on substantial trade, including trade in services or trade in technology, principally between the United States and the foreign state of which he/she is a national.
E-2 visa holders are entitled to enter the United States under, and in pursuance of, the provisions of a treaty of commerce and navigation between the US and his/her foreign state, solely to develop and direct the operations of an enterprise in which he/she has invested, or of an enterprise in which he/she is actively in the process of investing, a substantial amount of capital.
Both of the above visa classifications allow the visa holder to bring his/her spouse and children if they are accompanying or following to join him the visa holder.
Nationals of Australia have their own visa classification to avoid other areas where visa backlogs often exist. E-3 visas allow admission to the U.S. nationals of the Commonwealth of Australia with respect to whom the United States Secretary of Labor determines and certifies to the United States Secretary of Homeland Security and the United States Secretary of State that the intending employer has filed with the Secretary of Labor an attestation. These persons must be employed solely to perform services in a specialty occupation in the United States.
