Hello. My name is***** am an attorney. I will review your question. I may need to clarify facts first. I will answer & we can discuss issues.
Hello Yosuef: You can incorporate the business in the United States and both of you can be shareholders of the business. You do not need a Visa or work permit unless you are doing business in the United States. In other words, if you are a passive investor and are not acting as an employee doing business in the US, then you can be a shareholder without the need for further documentation. With regard to a bank account, you can be a co-signer or be named on the bank account. Each bank is different in what they require, but they want to have the proper ID for you and may require you to get a document notarized at a US consulate in your home country. We can discuss more if you want to do so.
Yousef: You can be an active investor. You can make business decisions and find deals, and make projects. If you wanted to work in the United States with the company, then you would need a Visa.
Since you are incorporating in Minnesota, if that is your choice, then you would want a law firm in Minnesota. If you know the county, I can attempt to find a referral number for you to call to request an attorney.
