Hi! I have a company that exports different products to the U.S. and I’m thinking about applying for E1 visa. But I’d like to know if there’s an unstated minimum amount for ‘substantial’ volume of trade? What exactly does this mean? What else is required? I will be grateful for an answer.
Here are the main requirements: you have to be a citizen of one of the treaty countries (you can find the list online) and carry a “substantial” trade – the trade between the U.S. and the treaty country. About the “substantial” – from what I’ve read, it’s not always about the amount of money (obviously, it matters a lot), but more about continuous, regular transactions.
