I'm planning to start an LLC in Arizona. I live in Mexico and plan to continue residing there.

The LLC would be created to open a fitness center.

I've tried with LegalZoom, but they just offer LLC creation for American citizens.

Is it possible, as a foreign national, to create an Arizona LLC, be the sole owner, and also work on the business without living in the United States? What kind of special lawyer do I need to help me with this situation?


I don't understand what LegalZoom might be providing that limits the applicant to US citizens.

There is one two-page form to fill out.

Articles of Organization

The instructions are clear.

Instructions L010i Articles of Organization

The corporation is required to have a statutory agent in the state. It doesn't matter where the owners live.
