I'm a citizen of Morocco and I have a legal US company (in the software industry), and a US business bank account with a decent revenue (i never travelled to US or europe).

How can i prove ties to my home country? i'm afraid of applying for a tourist visa and getting denied because I don't have a local company in my home country (which I don't want to do because my clients aren't local and it wouldn't help me logistically)

I checked the required documents for self-employed on all european consulates websites in Morocco and they all list documents only a locally registered company would have.

Anyone in this same situation and got a visa like this in a developing country?

P.S. I know it's tricky now because of Covid, but i'm thinking ahead.

  • Have you looked at the consulate requirements in the US to see what form from US firms are required? Since your firm is a US firm, that may be acceptable even though you are making the application as a resident of Morocco. Jan 24 '21 at 9:36
  • @CodeOverload What ties to Morocco do you have? What is your travel history like, especially to countries with comparably strict entry criteria? Related question travel.stackexchange.com/questions/103826/…
