Israel/United States: Investor Visa For U.S. Citizens Forthcoming

American investors will soon be eligible for a new B-5 investor visa, following Israel's acceptance of the terms of the U.S. E-2 visa regulations. Israeli government officials have advised that B-5 visa regulations and procedures should be published by March 2017. The regulations are expected to have terms and conditions reciprocal to the U.S. E-2 visa. This opens the way to implementation of an E-2 visa for Israeli investors.

What This Means for Employers and Foreign Nationals

U.S. investors should benefit from the B-5 visa once it is implemented since it will provide a new route for work authorization and a streamlined application process.

Now that Israel has accepted the terms of the E-2 regulations, this opens the way to implementation of an E-2 visa for Israeli investors. For more information on the E-2 visa, contact your U.S. immigration professional.
