Brazil E-2 Approvals are flat post COVID-19

Brazil does not have an active E-2 visa treaty with the U.S., therefore, Brazilians do not qualify for the E-2 investors’ visa. Citizens from countries without an E-2 visa treaty usually apply using through their second nationality (if they have dual citizenship from an E-2 treaty country) or by participating in citizenship by investment programs (e.g. Turkey or Grenada) to obtain eligible citizenship for the E-2 visa.

Even though Brazil is not included in the E-2 treaty countries, U.S. consulates in Brazil have processed many E-2 visas. Brazilians often have dual nationality through ancestry with E-2 visa countries such as Italy, Spain and Argentina. Leveraging the second nationality has been a great tool to access the E-2 visa.

In 2021, Brazil is far from pre-COVID-19 Pandemic visa issuances numbers. Not being an E-2 Visa treaty country has hit even harder in comparison with other Latin American countries with a treaty.
