E-2 Investor Visas
E-2 investor visas are popular with immigrants as a relatively fast way to get permission to live and work in the US for an extended period of time. The visa often allows an investor to stay in the US for 2 to 5 years and is renewable. The requirements for an E-2 investor visa include a substantial investment in a new or existing enterprise that is real and active and will either produce more than a living wage for the investor and his/her family or will make a significant economic contribution through job creation. The E-2 visa can ultimately lead to an EB-5 green card if the investor invests $500,000 to $1 million and creates 10 new full time jobs. For more information on E-2 and EB-5 investor visas and their requirements please watch our latest video on the subject.
Possible Investment Opportunity
We recently learned about an investment opportunity that could potentially qualify an investor for an E-2 investor visa.
The business is called E Z Pack & Ship LLC (dba Eagle Shipping Center) and the asking price is $85,000. The business had revenues of $140,880 last year.
The seller reports the following: Eagle Shipping Center is one of several locations throughout Florida and an investor would be welcome into the Eagle Shipping family. An investor would enjoy the support of a large organization with an established and successful business model which offers economies of scale in web services and internet marketing. Each investor becomes part of a larger branding exercise. The central office sends leads to the investors and provides training. The seller says that this lowers overhead and also makes it feasible for a dedicated investor to learn the business in a short amount of time.
Important note—we do not prequalify businesses for E-2 visas. However, the business could possibly form the foundation of an E-2 strategy if combined with another business, one or more additional locations, or can show resources and a strategy available to significant expand the business within five years.
Interested parties can contact the seller by phone: 561-401-7645.
The current owner started the business 3 years ago as part of a successful strategy to qualify for an E-2 Visa. He shared a E-Z Pack Ship – Sale Prospectus as well as several photos included below.
