Australian Business trading in NYC
I'm an Australian, working sponsored in NY on an E3 Visa, and I want to start a side business.
I have done some research and it seems difficult to start a business from scratch in the US (as a non-migrant) due to restrictions with my visa. Would it be easier to start/establish my business in Australia and then trade in NY - if so how would that work?
Any advise would be greatly appreciated!
I presume you are referring to your visa restrictions on work or business ownership in the U.S. (I am not closely familiar with E-3 visas since immigration is not my strong side, plus its a special type of visa to Australians, so pretty rare). The problem is, same restrictions would probably apply on you regardless of where your company is registered.
I think the best idea I have for you is to talk to an immigration attorney and to understand better what exact restrictions this type of visa puts on you. As far as I know, no visas restrict non-U.S. persons from owning shares or membership interest in U.S. companies.
