Are you a foreign national looking to invest in Southwest Florida?

In 2017 Cape Coral- Fort Myers metropolitan area was named one of the fastest growing city in the United States by Forbes. In fact, Florida has nine out of the 25 fastest-growing cities, more than any other state. As a foreign investor, Florida, particularly Cape Coral- Fort Myers, is an ideal place to invest with a growing economy and high employment rate.


Here is some information on the E-2 visa program to consider:

What is an E-2 Visa?

An E-2 Visa is a nonimmigrant visa that allows a foreign national from a treaty county to be admitted to the United States if they can show that they are investing a substantial amount of capital in a U.S. business.


What is a Treaty Country?

In order to apply for an E-2 visa, the United States must maintain a treaty of commerce and navigation with your home country. A complete list of countries can be found here: https://travel.state.gov/content/visas/en/fees/treaty.html

What is Considered an Investment for the E-2 Visa?

An investment occurs when the foreign national places capital (this can be funds and/or assets) at risk in the U.S. market with the goal of generating a profit. The investment must be subject to a partial or complete loss if the investment fails.

Where can I get the Funds to Invest?

The foreign national investor must show that their investment has not been obtained directly or indirectly from criminal activity. In other words, the investment must be from a legitimate source.

What is a Substantial Investment?

This is relative to the type of business that is being established. The investment must be sufficient to ensure that the investor is committed to the successful operation of the enterprise.


What Kind of Business/Investment Will Qualify?

The investment must be made into a bona fide enterprise. Therefore, the investor must show that the enterprise is real, active, and operating and produces services or goods for profit.
