SWFL has long attracted European Buyers, Germans in particular. They have a long relationship with it, not just for vacations, but also for second homes, investment properties and, owning businesses.

The reason? In many cases, the E-2 visa.

Known as the investment visa, the E-2 is for non-immigrant investors from countries with which the U.S. maintains a “treaty of commerce and navigation” per the U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services’ website. The E-2 allows them to stay in the United States as long as they are investing a “substantial amount of capitol” in American business. The list of eligible E-2 countries is extensive and includes places as diverse as Armenia, Bahrain, and Singapore. Plus, of course, Germany.
