Effective May 1, Israeli Nationals Eligible for E-2 Treaty Investor Visas

The U.S. Embassy in Israel has announced that a treaty investor agreement has been signed between the United States and Israel, granting Israeli citizens the ability to apply for an E-2 visa at the U.S. Embassy Branch Office Tel Aviv. Additionally, certain Israeli nationals who are lawfully present in the United States will soon be able to request a change of status to the E-2 treaty investor classification. The E-2 Visa will allow Israeli citizens to develop, direct, or provide their specialized skills to the company they are investing in.
