How to start a business in the United States

How to start a business in the United States?

You have money to invest and you want to conquer the West. It is true that the American dream seduces more than one and that the preconception that it is easier to succeed in the USA is largely rooted in mentalities. All you have to do is start your own business in the United States and see your dream come true.

But beware; the arrangements to set up his box are long and tedious.

To set up a company, you need a visa:

You don't go to the United States for tourism or to work as an employee. You will need to apply for a special visa for investments in the United States. This E2 visa is the essential document for you to set up your business in the USA. However, you will see that you have to put the cart before the horse in order to obtain this authorization, which is valid at best for 5 years. Beyond that, you will need to apply for the green card.

Like the others, the special visa for investors is requested at the Embassy. You will have to fill out a complex file. We advise you to ask for assistance in filling up your file. Specific documents will be required, such as a business plan and other very stringent constraints, such as the company's location in regional centers determined by the American authorities and the hiring of 10 full-time employees.

Set up the business before obtaining your visa:

And to obtain this proof of employment and location, you will have to go to the United States to make the necessary arrangements with the American Chamber of Crafts and Trades. There, you will get a lot of useful information that will facilitate your business creation, but also your new life in the United States with your family.

For these post visa trips, you will need an ESTA, which is easier to obtain than a visa, but gives you fewer rights.

Finally, your company will be created, but you will still be waiting for the approval of the U. S. administration of your E5 visa. On the other hand, you will have all the proof required by the authorities to issue you this famous visa. Otherwise, you will have to run your brand new business from the ground up.

Hiring at a company in the United States:

If you are not successful in starting your own business in the U. S. or if you prefer salaried employment, be aware that many sectors are recruiting in the U. S. market.
