E-1 Treaty Trader Visa Business Plans

Partnering with Immigration Attorneys & Treaty Traders

An E-1 Treaty Trader Visa allows a national of a treaty country (a country with which the United States maintains a treaty of commerce and navigation) to be admitted to the United States solely to engage in international trade on his or her own behalf. The key to submitting an effective visa application is to have a thorough and comprehensive business plan that focuses on the key E-1 requirements of ”substantial trade” and “principal trade” between the United States and the treaty country which qualified the treaty trader for E-1 classification.

If you need assistance, New Frontiers is here to provide professional guidance in creating an immigration business plan focused specifically on E1 requirements.

General qualifications of an E-1 Treaty Trader

• Must be a national of a treaty country with which the United States maintains a treaty of commerce and navigation

• Nationals of qualifying treaty countries who undertake a significant amount of international trade with the United States may qualify for this type of visa. The volume of such trade must be sufficient to justify the trader or his/her employee(s) being in the United States to manage the trade, and must constitute the majority of the trader's international trade (i.e. at least 50% of the Trader's exports/imports must be to/from the U.S.)

The maximum length of time an applicant can remain in the U.S. under this visa is two years, after which he or she may apply for an extension.
