When opening a business in the US do I need to hire employees?

It is not mandatory to hire employees in order to have your business in the United States . However, taking into account that you are a foreigner, it is recommended that you open your business through the EB5 visa. This visa is a project that was created in 1990 with the goal of stimulating the US economy by investing foreign capital and generating jobs.

Entrepreneurs (their consorts and unmarried children under the age of 21) can apply for a Green Card if they make the necessary investment in a commercial enterprise within the country and preserve 10 full-time permanent jobs.
