E2 Visa money requirement?
« on: December 24, 2012, 06:01:02 am »
Is there a certain amount of funds one must have in the bank in order to obtain an E2 visa? If so, what's the minimum? I've heard of people getting rejected because of insufficient funds, but I don't know if this also applies to the E2 visa?

Nope. As a pretty darn broke person who just obtained an E-2 this week, I can confirm that no funds are needed (other than all the costs associated with E-2 paperwork).

If you are planning to come and work here you should have *some* funds.  It's not a requirement as such, but you will find you have immediate expenses when you arrive, and you'll need something to live on for the first month or so until you get paid.

I'd recommend you have an absolute minimum of about US$500 (or equivalent).  $1000 would be comfortable.

Thanks for the responses everyone! I definitely have enough to survive for at least a month, but I thought you would need something like more than $2k in your bank to prove that you have sufficient funds to live abroad. When I studied abroad as a student.. I believe it was required, but I guess it is not true for all visa cases. :)
