Qualifications for Treaty Trader (E-1)

In order to qualify for an E-1 Treaty Trader visa, you must be a citizen of a qualifying treaty country, as previously mentioned, and also fulfill the following criteria:

  • At least 50 percent of the involved trading firm must be owned by citizens of the treaty country;
  • The firm must engage in the international exchange of goods, services, and/or technology;
  • The volume of trade must be so significant as to justify the presence of the trader or his/her employees in the U.S. for management purposes;
  • At least 50 percent of the trade in question should be between the U.S. and the country of the applicant’s nationality; and
  • The applicant must be the Treaty Trader him/herself or a highly skilled or executive employee with the firm.

To determine whether you meet all these requirements, consult with a knowledgeable Austin visa lawyer.

What Are the Benefits of an E-1 Visa?

An E-1 visa secures the holder’s status in the U.S. for up to two years and can be renewed every two years without limit. Not only that, E-1 holders who go abroad are generally granted an automatic two-year period of readmission upon their return to the U.S. Finally, an E-1 holder may attain visas for his/her spouse and unmarried children (under 21 years of age).

How Do I Apply?

You may start the application process by going to your U.S. Consulate, or by filing a petition with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) if you are already in the U.S. After submitting your application, a consular officer or USCIS official will carefully review it to determine whether you meet the proper requirements. It is important to fill out your application completely and correctly and demonstrate your eligibility as clearly as possible. Get help from an immigration law attorney to increase your chance of a successful application.
