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.
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.
