E&M Global Insurance is proud of its work on behalf of those born outside the United States. Yet there is much confusion about the E-2 Visa. While we are not experts we have rounded up the most common questions and answers.

3. Do I need to get an immigration attorney in order to apply for an E-2? Short answer no; but it its recommended as any errors could result in your application being denied.
4. Can an E-2 individual own a firearm? This one is state specific. But in most cases you can purchase a firearm but NOT a conceled firearm permit.
