E-2 visas (Investment Visa) – Israel

Posted by Alexander Carl | 30 Jul, 2020 | 0 Comments

E-2 visa category is available to citizens and nationals of Israel as of May 1, 2019.  

All Israeli companies seeking E-visas for their owners or employees must apply at the Branch Office in Tel Aviv and establish that the trading enterprise or investment meets the requirements. The company and applicant have the burden of demonstrating they meet the requirements for Treaty Trader/Investor status under 9 FAM 402.9.

For both first time applicants and renewals, the company must submit supporting documents, including the individual application for the employee, by mail.

If USCIS authorized a Change of Status to E for a person in the United States, that status is only valid as long as you remain in the United States. To obtain an E-visa, the company and applicant must submit a complete package by mail. 

All supporting documents must be mailed to the Branch Office in Tel Aviv at the following address:

E1/E2 Visa Assistant

Embassy of the United States of America, Branch Office Tel Aviv

Consular Section

71 Hayarkon Street

Tel Aviv 6343229

The E-1/E-2 visa unit will review the submitted file and then schedule an interview for the company and/or employee. Preliminary review of corporate files currently takes from four to eight weeks. The review is executed on a first come first served basis. All applicants are then required to attend an in-person interview. Scheduling an interview date is not an assurance that a company’s application will be approved or that an employee’s visa will be issued.

We handle E-2 visas frequently.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our Office.
