E2 visa: understand how it is possible to live in the United States with Portuguese citizenship

Do you dream of living in the United States, but are you worried about the visa? Know that there is a new way to make your wish come true in 2023. Recently, the American Congress approved Portugal’s entry on the list of countries with release for the E2 Visa.


But what is the E2 Visa?

It is a type of visa made for investors that is part of the Treaty of Commerce and Navigation. Unfortunately, Brazil is not included in this treaty.

Therefore, Portuguese citizenship becomes a great bonus for Brazilians who want to enjoy this benefit. In fact, many Brazilians can benefit from this, since the historical relationship between Brazil and Portugal allows many families to have the right to dual citizenship.

How to apply for the E2 visa?

The E2 can be requested by anyone who has a nationality approved by the American country – in this case Portuguese, and requires that anyone entering the country develop a business or have at least a 50% stake in a company.

One of the best advantages is that there is no limit on how many times E2 can be renewed every 5 years. Spouses also enjoy the right to live in the United States, as well as children up to 21 years old.
