Citizenship By Investment Programs qualifying for the US E-2 Visa Program 2020


How to qualify for the USA E-2 Visa Program even if you don’t live in a Treaty Country.

Want to gain US residency by investment but find the EB-5 Investor Program too expensive? The E-2 Visa Program offers a far more affordable pathway to a US green card and eventual citizenship, but it’s not open to all nationalities – only investors from countries that have signed an E-2 commerce and navigation treaty with the USA are eligible to apply.

The simplest solution is to gain a second citizenship by investment in a country that does, and there are a number of excellent options on the market. Find out more about the various E-2 eligible Citizenship By Investment Programs below, or contact us now for more information.

E-2 Eligible Economic Citizenship Programs 2020



  • Price: From $200,000 for a family of 4 (government donation), or $220,000+ (property investment). 

  • Pros:  Arguably the fastest, most efficient route to obtaining a USA E-2 Visa, and its passport is excellent. Travel visa-free to over 140 countries, including the UK, EU, Ireland and Russia, and it’s situated closest to the USA of all the E-2 eligible Citizenship By Investment Programs.

  • Cons: Geographically remote, thus harder to reach from Africa and Europe as a second home destination, and the investment must be maintained for a longer period of time (5 years or more).


  • Price: A €100,000 government donation plus a property investment, in a government approved real estate project, of €250,000 in the north of the country, or €450,000 in the south.

  • Pros: Visa-free travel to the EU, and EU accession likely by 2025. Central European location, excellent holiday destination, E-2 Treaty Country and a company tax rate of only 9% – the lowest in Europe.

  • Cons: Relatively low GDP per capita, fiscus constrained.


  • Price: Property investments from $250,000.

  • Pros: Strategically situated close to Europe, excellent value for money, short minimum investment period (only 3 years), and high appeal as an international travel destination.

  • Cons: Relatively weak passport, and the country is a non-EU member, hence no visa-free travel to the EU.
