The U.S. Embassy in Israel recently announced that a treaty investor agreement (E-2 Visa) has been signed between the United States and Israel. Beginning May 1, 2019, the U.S. Embassy in Israel will accept E-2 investor visa applications. The E-2 visa is a temporary (nonimmigrant) visa that can be used to develop, direct, or provide specialized skills to an enterprise in which the owner has invested a substantial amount of capital. This treaty agreement between the U.S. and Israel has been long anticipated. With the implementation of this E-2 visa, Israeli investors will have the opportunity to invest in the U.S. economy and send qualified employees to the U.S. Similarly, U.S. citizens will be able to apply for visas to invest in the Israeli economy.
