One way to establish the minimal income requirement is to show that the E2 applicant has hired one or more employees. This would clearly show that the business income is more than enough to provide for only the investor.
But, if the E2 visa applicant is not prepared to hire employees – there is another option. The entrepreneur can create a business plan that details the steps that will be taken within five years to make a significant economic contribution.
In the business plan, the investor can project a personnel growth plan within five years. Using this strategy, the E2 investor applicant can present a case for approval without hiring any employees before filing the application. Questions? Call 214-741-1700.
