The E-2 visa is the best-kept secret for foreign entrepreneurs wishing to live the American dream. As such, when clients consult us about investing in the United States, we often bring up the possibility of opening a franchise as a vehicle to obtain the E-2 investor visa (for info about the E-2, click here).
Often times clients satisfy many of the E-2 requirements, such as being a citizen of a treaty country (see treaty country list here) or having a substantial amount of money to invest. Yet a common issue is not knowing where and how to invest the money. For such cases, investing in a franchise can be the perfect solution.
Franchise key advantages:
- Consular officers will analyze that the business is operative, viable, and non-marginal. By choosing an established franchise, it can be easier to establish these requirements because franchises usually have a record of success with a proven business plan, and therefore consular officers may be already familiar to them.
- Setting up your new business can be a complex and stressful endeavor. However, among other benefits, franchises offer management assistance and training to the investor, offering solutions and guidance in a business that can be otherwise challenging.
- Franchises exist in diverse industries, are flexible, and can adjust to different budgets
But because investor franchisees usually have to pay royalties to the franchisor and follow their directions, thorough research should be conducted before choosing your perfect franchise.
We can help you in every step of the process, from verifying your eligibility for an E-2 visa to helping you find the best franchise for your needs.
