Can the spouse of an E-2 Investor visa holder receive a green card?
Can I apply for a green card with an E-2 Investor visa?
The main investor of the E-2 Investor visa cannot apply for a green card in the U.S. However, an E-2 employee visa holder can apply for one. Thus, it becomes limiting for the family of the investor to apply for residency using an E-2 employee visa, which means it becomes limiting for the wife who has an E-2 employee visa to apply for a green card if her husband is the chief executive officer.
Nonetheless, the spouse of an E-2 visa holder can proceed with employment-based immigration through a different company or applying through a different company’s E-2 employee visa.
