E-1 Visa Attorney in New York City
Dedicated to Helping You Achieve Your Immigration Goals
If you work for or own at least 50 percent of a company that comes from a country that has bilateral trade or commerce agreements with the United States, you may be eligible to apply for an E-1 visa. Your employer (company) must demonstrate that it carries on substantial trade in goods, including but not limited to services and technology, principally between the United States and its country. It's important to note that the E-1 visa can be held by the entity itself, as well as its employees that meet USCIS criteria. To be an applicant for an E-1 visa as an employee of the company that satisfies the trade requirements, you need to meet several criteria.

As a result, he is deeply familiar with the various criteria and laws involved in obtaining an E-1 visa. Robert Maher and our legal team have an extensive track record of success in immigration law, and we can handle all your needs today.
Requirements for E-1 Classification
In order to qualify for E-1 classification as a treaty trader employee, you need to be coming to the U.S. to carry out duties as an essentially skilled employee, supervisor, or executive of the commercial enterprise. This basically means you need to be employed in a supervisory or executive capacity. However, if you are employed in a lesser capacity, it means you need to have skills that are essential to the efficient and successful operation of the business. Typically, unskilled or ordinarily skilled workers are not eligible.
The current list of treaty countries is extensive, and it includes but is not limited to:
- United Kingdom
