Investment Work Visas & Green Cards
Dallas and Fort Worth, Investment/E-1/E-2 Visa Lawyers
Investment visas, also known as E visas, are visas that allow investors and businesspeople to live and conduct business in the United States for a long-term period. Investment visas fall under two categories:
- E-1 visas enable foreign nationals to live in the U.S. and conduct trade between the U.S. and the treaty country.
- E-2 visas allow foreign nationals to direct and develop a business enterprise in which they have invested or are in the process of investing.
Investment visas are available to citizens of countries with which the United States has a qualifying treaty of commerce or an equivalent agreement, and generally last two years with, often unlimited extensions.
If you are interested in pursuing an investment visa, the visa and immigration law firm of Chavez & Valko can help. From our offices in Dallas and Fort Worth, we have helped people from dozens of nations obtain investment visas and extensions.

- Martin Valko is a very professional Immigration Lawyer with a very respectful team, he is by far the best I have ever known. He tries very hard to help any situation in which you might be in, he is a very honest man and will not give any false hope on your case. Our situation was very hard and most likely to fail, we needed a waiver given by Washington and Mr. Valko helped us all the way through. He knew how he could get us back working in the United States. In our case we were rejected and our investor visas were taken away and all because we went with a lawyer who tricked. Thanks to Mr. Valko we are back home and 8 months after being out of the country we got to meet him and be most grateful to him because we were back again in our home and with our children. Thank You Mr. Valko for helping us.
