Texas offers the ideal conditions and opportunities for investors searching for a prosperous and safe destination for foreigners planning to set up a business.
The Permanent Resident permit or Green Card and eventually a U.S citizenship is the ultimate goal of immigrants entering the United States.
Every state has its laws and in the case of Texas, taxes play a very significant role. Texas has one of the lowest tax burdens in the country and does not have a corporate nor individual state income tax.

Foreign investment has come mainly from China, South Korea and Taiwan. However, the political unrest and economic instability of our neighbors from Mexico and Venezuela has created an influx of new businesses looking for financial stability. Hispanic immigration to Texas and its mayor cities has increased the Spanish speaking population close to 50%.
Dallas and Texas as a whole is an attractive destination for families and businesses looking to relocate. The quality of educational opportunities with top rated universities, its physical location, the climate, the languages being spoken and understood, the availability of local food and customs, have made Texas very attractive for potential investors from Central, South America and Mexico.
