Foreigner buying a gas station

Asked by: Tuan Trinh - 10 October, 2012 I am a foreign citizen in Vietnam. I have B1/B2 visa. I want to buy and operate a gas station in US. What can I do?
Answered by: Robert Kowalski - 12 October, 2012 Dear Tuan,

You can certainly own a gas station in the U.S., not being a U.S. citizen or resident. Keep in mind, however, that without proper work authorization it would be illegal for you to be employed directly by this business. So I presume you would need to find a manager (or a management company) to handle the day to day operations of the business.

We have prepared a few articles and other resources to help international clients open business in the US, and I invite you to check them here:
