When it comes to US incorporation, it's important to be aware that certain countries are restricted by the US. If you and/or one of your business partners lives or significantly operates in one of these countries, we cannot create your account at this time:
- Central African Republic
- Democratic Republic of the Congo
- North Korea
- Republic of Congo
- South Sudan
Some of our partners may have different criteria and they can or cannot support applications for other countries so make sure to check their restriction too.
Please check the restricted list from Mercury --one of our banking partners -- in the following link:
At the moment, OFAC's new law (U.S. Department of Treasury, Office of Enforcement, Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) E.O. 14071 effective June 7, 2022) blocks Russian residents or citizens from incorporating a business in the US.
