As described on the USCIS website, a treaty investor must “be a national of an E-2 visa treaty country with which the United States maintains a treaty of commerce and navigation”.
There are currently 30+ that have trade treaties with the United States. To qualify as a treaty investor, you must be a legal citizen of one of the countries listed above—legal permanent resident status is unfortunately, not enough. That being said, while citizenship is required, residence is not. What could this mean? You do not need to live/reside in the cited E2 visa treaty country to qualify. In other words, as long as you hold citizenship from a treaty county, you could reside anywhere and remain eligible. Are you an Iranian citizen living in Germany? A Belgian living in Switzerland? That’s okay!
