Israeli E-2 Visas Confirmed for May 1, 2019

Matthew Galati

The Israeli E-2 visa will soon become a reality. As reported by our office in late March, the long-awaited treaty investor agreement between the United States and Israel was expected to become effective in just few short weeks.  As an update, the U.S. Embassy has now confirmed that Israeli E-2 visa applications will be accepted as of Wednesday, May 1, 2019.

Pursuant to the treaty, Israeli citizens will be able to apply for an E-2 visa at the U.S. Embassy Branch Office, Tel Aviv. A formal ceremony marking this historic accomplishment is tentatively scheduled to take place on Monday, May 6, 2019, with Ambassador Friedman as the keynote speaker.

The E-2 visa provides relatively fast entry into the U.S. by allowing applicants the opportunity to apply directly to a consulate abroad with no petition to USCIS needed. For a country with as many burgeoning businesses and startups as Israel, it provides a fantastic option for Israelis looking to direct or develop their company in the United States.

Contact us today to prepare for the opening of the E-2 visa to Israelis.
