    Answered . This question has 2 parts: 1) Can I start a business and get an import/export license; and 2) Will me status as a non-citizen, under an EAD, prevent me or pose complications for me to start this business and obtain this license?

    Unfortunately, it is difficult to advise you on this since you have given us very little facts. There are many factors and issues that may arise in starting a business, business formation, entity choice, tax consequences, and also in immigration. Immigration is a complicated area of practice.

    I think your best bet here is to consult with an attorney who has experience in international trade - licensing for international business or sales. Immigration is a key part here though since I can only assume your status may be a factor in whether or not you are granted a license.
