E-2 VISA TREATY FOR CITIZENS OF ECUADOR IS SET TO EXPIRE

The Department of State announced that the bilateral investment treaty between the United States and Ecuador terminated on May 18, 2018. Nevertheless, E-2 visa holders from Ecuador, who filed an application prior to May 18, 2018, will be able to extend their status for the next 10 years until May 18, 2028. The only nationals of Ecuador (other than those qualifying for derivative status based on a familial relationship to an E-2 principal alien) who may qualify for E-2 visas at this time are those applicants who are coming to the United States to engage in E-2 activity in furtherance of covered investments established or acquired prior to May 18, 2018."
