E-2 Visas for Israeli Nationals (Finally Here!)

Beginning May 1, 2019, nationals of Israel may submit an E-2 treaty investor visa application with the Tel Aviv Branch of the U.S. Embassy in Israel, or file a change of status application with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) if the applicant is currently in the United States in a lawful nonimmigrant status.

The recent announcements by both USCIS and the U.S. Embassy in Israel came just short of seven (7) years after President Obama signed into law HR 3992, which adds Israel to the list of countries eligible for E-2 investor visas in the United States.
