What Does Trump’s Suspension of L-Visas Imply for The E2 Program?

 

Concerned about the employment prospects of American citizens in the wake of lockdowns, President Trump yesterday signed an executive order that will see new entries to the United States on the basis of most visas in the H-1B, H-2B, J, and L-visas suspended until December 31st this year.

 

In the context of investment migration, the most noteworthy piece of news is the moratorium on L-visas which, to a limited extent, are considered imperfect substitutes for E-2 visas. Will the freeze on L-visas positively sway demand for E-2-visas?
