Dear Alejandro,

Although you may not be able to work for your American company without a proper visa (we are not sure if it is possible to work for your American company while located abroad), you will be able to receive profits as a direct distribution in an LLC or as dividends if you start a corporation. We caution you, however, that without a permanent resident alien card (the “greencard”) you cannot start a subchapter S corporation, but only a C corporation in the US. You can read our article on the differences between the S-corporation and the C-corporation to understand the differences.
