E2 Visa FAQs
E2 Visa Tips
E2 Visa Overview
The E2 Visa is a non-immigrant visa which allows foreign nationals to start businesses in the U.S.
The E2 Visa requires that the foreign entrepreneur invest business capital in the U.S. to start up a new venture; or to acquire an existing business venture.
In exchange for the capital investment, the U.S. government will issue an E2 Visa; once all other requirements are met.
E2 Visas First Step – Determining Eligibility
The visa applicant must be from a country that is one of the US Treaty Visa countries. There are less than 100 countries that have E2 Visa treaties with the US. Not all individuals in all countries will be eligible for an E2 visa.
Where To Find the E2 Visa Treaty Country Info?
There are two places to find information on E2 Visa Treaty countries.
- The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Website
- VERDIN Website – https://verdinlaw.com/treaty-countries-us-e-visas

Deportation Defense FAQs
Green Card Holders – Basic Things To Do if Detained at the U.S. Border
Green Card Holders – Know Your Rights
All people arriving at the U.S. border or a port of entry have basic rights.
Lawful Permanent Residents
Lawful Permanent Residents LPRs (also known as Green Card Holders) enjoy greater rights than nonimmigrants when returning to the United States after international travel.
Like all international travelers, LPRs are subject to inspection by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) when arriving at an airport or land-based port of entry. As a Lawful Permanent Resident, CBP will screen you to determine whether you are a “returning resident” or an “arriving alien.”
Can a Green Card Holder Get Deported for Possessing Drugs?
Generally, yes. However, there is one exception.
If you are green card holder, and you get convicted for drug possession, then the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (USDHS) may initiate removal proceedings against you.
There is one drug exception where USDHS would not succeed in trying to deport you:
A single offense for possession of marijuana -- under 30 grams.
Because drug convictions carry serious consequences for green card holders, it is critical for immigrants to seek experienced counsel to assist in this complex removal defense.
VERDIN Dallas Immigration Law focuses on helping green card holders with complex drug convictions. Contact VERDIN today.
