Texas is the one of the most populated states with a population bigger than Australia, there is no surprise that this state has plenty of investment opportunities. If you are looking for profitable business opportunities, Texas is the right place. You can invest in different sectors such as Oil & Energy, IT, Renewable Energy, and much more.
One of the main concern for international investors always is the visa. In order to be qualify for investment visa in the United State, and move with your family to live here, you have to start or purchase a commercial enterprise in the United States and create or preserve permanent full-time jobs for U.S. workers. One of the great affordable programs to work in the United State is the E-2 Treaty Investors visa.
The E-2 visa allows a national of a country with which the United States maintains a treaty of commerce and navigation to be admitted to the United States when investing a substantial amount of capital in a U.S. business. If you are a national of a country with which the United States maintains a treaty of commerce and actively in the process of investing, a substantial amount of capital in the USA, you can benefit from this program. Another “Bigger Investment” visa is the EB-5 Immigration Investor visa. To learn about both programs, visit the USCIS web site.
Finding a business opportunity here in Texas can be easier than what you think if you work closely with the right people. You will need to connect with business broker to help you find the right opportunity within your budget. Also, you will need an immigration lawyer who can help you through the full process. If you decide to start completely new business here in Texas, you can, but you still need to do your homework right. Their are many business web site that can help you and provide free consultations and advice even about the market value.
Since I started helping some investors to move to Texas in 2014, I found it always easier than what I though and affordable to start new business more than buying an existing one. You still need to prepare a business plan to the US immigration authorities in order to approve your business vis.
