|Treaties and Laws Between the U.S. and Other Countries|
|In order to be eligible for an E-1 or E-2 visa, an individual must be a national of a treaty country, meaning a foreign state with which a qualifying Treaty of Friendship, Commerce, or Navigation or its equivalent exists with the United States. Below is a list of the countries that have such treaties in effect with the United States. This list can be found in the U.S. Deparment of States' Foreign Affairs Manual at 9 FAM 41.51 Exhibit I.
In reviewing this list, please note that the Foreign Affairs Manual included specific notes regarding some of these countries. These notes can be found here.
Since an individual may apply for a change to E status while in the United States or apply for an E visa abroad, both the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and the U.S. Department of State provide their guidelines for eligibility.
