Mexico ranks four in the issuance investor visas to the U.S.

According to the U.S. diplomatic services, Mexico ranks four worldwide in issuance of investor visas E.  Treaty Trader visas (E-1) and Treaty Investor visas (E-2) are temporary visas for nationals of a country with which the United States maintains a treaty of friendship, commerce and navigation (which includes Mexico) who wish to go to the United States for one of two purposes: to carry on substantial trade, principally between the United States and the treaty country (E-1); or to develop and direct the operations of an enterprise in which the national has invested or is in the process of investing a substantial amount of capital (E-2).

Starting July 1, 2012, the U.S. Embassy in Mexico announced a change rules for the issuance of Investor and Treaty Trader visas (E). According to a press release, the U.S. consular operations in Mexico will centralize all E-visas adjudications in Mexico at the visa posts with significant experience in processing those types of visas and that host large, trained staffs to bear on this important program. After July 1, all review of E visa applications in Mexico will occur only at the three posts: the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City; U.S. Consulate General in Monterrey; and the U.S. Consulate General in Tijuana.
