USCIS announced on January 22 that Iranian nationals are no longer eligible for E-1 and E-2 trade and investor visas. This is because the Trump administration terminated the 1955 Treaty of Amity, Economic Relations, and Consular Rights with Iran in 2018. Current Iranian holders of these visas may stay until their visas expire, but may not extend or reapply for the visas. USCIS will also send out notices of Intent to Deny to all Iranian nationals who applied for E-1 and E-2 visas after October 3, 2018.
