Non-Immigrant Visas for Investors
When your reason for coming to this country involves making investments, you will most likely need to apply for an E-2 visa as a treaty investor. The United States issues an unlimited number of these every year, but to be eligible you must be a national of a country which currently shares a commerce treaty with the U.S. There are other requirements, such as being able to demonstrate that you will be making a substantial investment which will likely have an effect on the local economy and that you are seeking entry to this country solely for the purpose of pursuing your investment. An E-2 visa will allow you to stay for up to two years, though you can apply for additional two-year extensions as many times as you require to carry out your investment goals.
