Beginning May 1, 2019, Israeli citizens may apply for E-2, investor, visas. This long-awaited US immigration option for Israelis is the culmination of lengthy efforts by both the United States and Israel toward the goal of reciprocal US/Israeli investor visa options. This treaty-based, temporary, category creates options for Israelis to make business investments in the US in any industry and operate the businesses developed through investment. The new visa option is a welcomed development for a country known as the “start-up” nation. The E-2 visa will surely energize Israeli nationals with an entrepreneurial spirit to bring this business drive to the United States.
