Very important, less known
information

A minimum of 50% ownership in a business is required to qualify for an E2 Visa. In the case of a South African family with Grenadian citizenship and children over 21, the main applicant and his child can each own 50% of the business and both of them will qualify for the E2 visa. Both parties must have full management rights and responsibilities. The 50% shareholding of the child can be financed by the parent as a donation.
The E2 visa business can be financed from outside the US, for example a property in South Africa can be bonded to obtain the set up costs for the business.
