Purchasing an island in Florida does not necessarily enable a foreign buyer to live on the island year round. The foreign owner must qualify for a visa of some type that permits temporary or permanent residence in the U.S. Fortunately, this particular island that is for sale includes some features that make the purchase well suited for a business-related visa application, such as an E-2 Treaty Investor visa or an EB-5 Investment green card.
The island sale includes several active businesses such as: a water ferry business to taxi residents and visitors to the island, marinas for docking boats, a restaurant and a resort beach club. It also includes extensive land holdings suitable for residential and commercial development. The price for all of the assets is in the millions.
