Our immigration attorneys regularly work with foreigners who want to invest and start businesses in Florida. There are 2 main strategies we recommend to immigrant investors and entrepreneurs: the E-2 and EB-5 visas.
E-2 investor visas are popular with immigrant investors as a way to qualify by investing a substantial amount of money in a new or existing enterprise that is real and active and will either produce more than a living wage for the investor and his/her family or will make a significant economic contribution through job creation. The visa often allows an investor to stay in the US for 2 to 5 years and is renewable.
The E-2 visa can ultimately lead to an EB-5 green card if the investor invests $500,000 to $1 million and creates 10 new full time jobs. For more information on E-2 and EB-5 investor visas and their requirements please watch our latest video on the subject.
At ImmigrationSarasota.com we often receive notifications of businesses for sale. We like to share these opportunities with our readers who may be looking for a new investment opportunity or for a way to qualify for an E-2 and EB-5 business. Sharing this information does not constitute a statement that this business would help an investor qualify for visa. We need to see more detailed financial information in order to provide our opinion on the business’ viability. Any investor who may be interested can request the financial details from the business broker and present them to us for an opinion.
