E-1 and E-2 visa applications


Thank you for your interest in nonimmigrant investor visas.  The Embassy is not currently accepting new applications for E-1 and E-2 visas.  At this time, we are processing those visa applicants who submitted applications prior to our ceasing operations due to COVID-19.  If you fall within this category, we will be contacting you when an appointment is available.  Once we can accept new applications, we will post further guidance on this page.

If you have already been contacted by the Embassy regarding your investor visa application, please follow the instructions you received regarding how to apply.

Note: Please do not send applications and documents unless we have contacted you directly and instructed you to do so. All other documents will be deleted.  You can resubmit them when we contact you or our website gives instructions regarding when and how to submit them.  We appreciate your patience while we normalize the service for the processing of E visas.
