There’s a bit more to it than just that.
E-2 visas, like all the other visas, have some pretty strict requirements. First, you must be a national of a treaty country. You must actually be a citizen of one of those countries and not just a permanent resident. As far as the business side of things, you must be making a substantial investment in a business. That amount varies depending on the type of business. For instance, if you are an investor in a startup, then the amount must be enough to start and continue the business. This is not a dual-intent visa, and individuals should return to their home country (or apply for a different visa) once their business is complete.
