One type of visa that has become increasingly common here in the U.S. in recent years is the E-2 visa. This is the “treaty investor” visa. It is available to individuals from countries that are treaty partners to the U.S. who invest in a U.S. business (with that investment having to meet certain requirements).

One of the things the quest for citizenship will generally involve for individuals going through the naturalization process here in the U.S. is taking the naturalization test. There are two components of this test, a civics component and an English component.

Foreign students who are attending a U.S. college on a student visa can have concerns about their future in the country when graduation time comes around.
Among the things individuals from other countries sometimes invest in are businesses here in America. Individuals who have made such an investment sometimes wish to spend time in the U.S. to help develop the business they have invested in. One option such individuals may have is to apply for E-2 nonimmigrant status.
