Asked by: George  — 30 October, 2013


I’m a Canadian Citizen and want to buy a production line in US. But not sure the following issues:

a. is it legal to buy business in US as a Canadian?
b. If so, how can I stay in US? As a visitor, or apply a working visa, etc.?

Thank you very much in advance!

Anyone can own a U.S. business, so I see no reason why you cannot buy an existing U.S. business, being a Canadian.

As far as staying in the U.S. it is an immigration question. I am sure there are various options available to Canadians, starting from the basic B1/B2 etc. You might want to research this question online or consult an immigration specialist.
