Visa Re-issuance

Visa re-issuance may be obtained through one of the three ways:

1. In person at a U.S. consulate

The alien can go to the U.S. consulate and present documents showing that the treaty enterprise remains the same. The forms and procedures are the same as those for the original visa issuance. It is likely that the consulate will have the treaty enterprise and the alien update the information included on Form OF-156E, the new form will be completed as a supplement to the basic nonimmigrant visa application.

2. Through the visa office in Washington, D.C.

Additional evidence is required for E-2 treaty investors seeking visa reissuance through the central visa office. This evidence must include the investment's most recent financial statement, latest income tax returns and W-2 forms for investors with ten employees or less.

3. By mail to the issuing consulate

A new visa can also be obtained by mail from the consulate that issued the original visa. This procedure requires no special explanation or supporting letter. Many persons are reluctant, however, to send their passports through international mail, and few persons use this method of revalidation.
