China have no trade treaty with u.s.
I don't need EB5, as I can not empoly 10 persons. and I don't need green card, only need a long term visa to stay at u.s.a. to manage my hotel.
Thank you for your responses. Unfortunately, there is not a long term visa available for the type of business that you are proposing. If you are not eligible for the E-2 treaty investor visa and are not interested in a green card and cannot employ ten persons, there is not a long term or short term visa that matches your specific requirements based upon your desire to be a business owner in the United States.
The majority of visas fall into the employment category which I assume that you are not interested in pursuing.
But since I can buy a hotel, why I can not get visa to work in my hotel?
There must be some visa for me .
Ok. Guillermo, from the questions you asked? you seems more experienced than your colleague.
1) I am not from Taiwan.
2) About 110million.
3) My husband and I owned more than 50% of a company sharehold.
What I need to be helped is that I am going to come into the purchase process of a hotel. but before this, I need to know how and which kind of visa that I can get in order for me to live in U.S. A and manage my business? Is there any tax policy and bank loan policy different between non-resident and a green card holder? I also heard that as an American resident , he not only need to pay the income tax in American,but also income from abroad, while "American resident" is not defined wheather you have green card or not, but is defined how many days you stay in U.S. A.. Is it true? If yes, then in my case, how many days to stay in U.S. A can be regard as "American resident" and pay the both income taxes?
Basiclly, you did not reply my questions and you've given a wrong conclusion from what I asked.
If you look, I did not give you an ANSWER. I gave you an INFO REQUEST. I am not trying to be difficult here, but please work with me. I want to help, but I need more information in order to help you. I am not making conclusions, I am asking for more information from you. U.S. immigration law is very complicated and even one piece of information could change an answer. Let me clarify the questions for you:1) He does NOT want a green card?2) He wants a visa to come and go as he pleases?3) He wants to manage the hotel?4) He does not want to pay U.S. taxes?5) Does he own a business outside of the U.S. for 1 year or more?Please answer each question and I will try to help you. Thank you.
My answer to your questions as follow:
1) He does NOT want a green card? Yes.2) He wants a visa to come and go as he pleases? Yes. just permit to stay, even I do not draw salary from management.3) He wants to manage the hotel? Yes.4) He does not want to pay U.S. taxes? He want to follow the U.S.A taxes policy and be legal. He should may the tax which is relative in U.S. A. but he don't want to pay the tax outside U.S. A..5) Does he own a business outside of the U.S. for 1 year or more?This I have replied before. My husband and I owned more than 50% of a company sharehold.
The questions that I am also concerned and which are relative with the Visa are:
Is there any tax policy and bank loan policy different between non-resident and a green card holder? I also heard that as an American resident , he not only need to pay the income tax in American,but also income from abroad, while "American resident" is not defined wheather you have green card or not, but is defined how many days you stay in U.S. A.. Is it true? If yes, then in my case, how many days to stay in U.S. A can be regard as "American resident" and pay the both income taxes?
For L-1A visa, how about max.7 years later, since I will have bought the hotel, How can I live in U.S.A then?
When you say :"resident" for tax purposes (and you do not need a green card for this), it is 180 days or more of time spent in the U.S. t
Do you mean that if I stay in U.S. more than180day in one year, than I am regard as "Redident" who not only pay the income tax which earn in U.S.A, but also pay the income tax which earn outside U.S. A? even if I have no green card? Please this is very important for me to carify before the next step.
I have Cyprus P. R.(not passport) ,does this works for E2 Visa?
When you say :"resident" for tax purposes (and you do not need a green card for this), it is 180 days or more of time spent in the U.S.
I know you are not for tax, but above question is "resident", And I am not quite understand the above, Would you explain clearly that how long time stay in each year could be regard as "resident" for tax purposes? I heart that the calculate is very complicate, they say last year is one day calucate as one day, but the year before last year one day is calcuate as 1/3 of the day etc. Would you please explain this law?
Sorry, still don't understand. confused with big "R" and small "r', I need to know in my case how many days each year to stay in U.S.A. will be regard as "resident' for tax purpose? 183 days is for one year or 3 years?
How do they calculate the day for each year?
