    Default Registering a Vehicle as a Foreign Investor

    I visit the US often, sometimes up to 6 months a year and lso own a house in Texas. I wish to purchase a car and register it in my name, as a vehicle to use during my stays- I have no social and only an international license. Am I allowed to do this?

    If you are lawfully in the U.S., I don't know why it would be a problem. If you "need" an SSN, you should be able to get an identification number from the IRS which (although not authorizing you to work) serves an equivalent purpose.

    What did the Texas DMV say when you asked them?

    Default Re: Registering a Vehicle as a Foreign Investor

    My son is married to a US citizen, I have a grandaughter and will, hopefully immigrate to the US within the next 2 years. At this stage I have bought property and will be visiting the States for 6 months at a time and wish to keep a car for myself. I am also keen to buy up older Audi's as I will eventually, should I succeed in moving permanently start an Audi Village (museum/art gallery/toy museum etc) and will be involving both my daughter in law and future daughter in law, bu at his stage I have a 10 year multiple entry visa and is allowed to stay for periods of, up to 6months.
    I would also like to establish how to go about importing my classics from south Africa and the legalities as far as emmissions etc as these vehicles will not be used frequently and will only be driven to car shows etc.
    Thanks for the advice thus far.
