FOREIGN NATIONAL LOANS FOR NON-RESIDENTS AND VISA HOLDERS—A FINANCING GUIDE
Acquiring residential and commercial properties in the U.S. is not hard—unless you’re a non-citizen. Foreign nationals struggle to find lenders who understand their needs. Factors like complicated paperwork and exorbitant pricing further contribute to poor financing support for non-residents and visa holders.
If you seek fair and flexible foreign national loans, choose Hard Money Loans Solutions (HMLS). We’re a Florida-based lending group offering multi-faceted asset-based mortgage services to non-residents and temporary residents—without entry barriers like verifiable income or credit stability.

How To Apply for an HMLS Foreign National Loan
HMLS is a team of lenders with 20+ years of hands-on real estate experience. We’ve seen how foreign national borrowers go through long, punishing screening cycles for basic mortgages, and we intend to fix that.
At HMLS, you acquire loans based on the value of the underlying collateral, not factors like:
- Job stability
- Visa status
- Verifiable income stream
- Origin-country credit report
- Cash reserves
- Aggregate asset ownership
Our application process is client-focused, putting you in the driver’s seat of the entire process. Here’s how to get our tailor-made foreign national loan:
- Apply and get approved within a day—Let us know about your target property and loan size. You can call us at (855)-244-2220 or fill out an online application
- Collaborate with our team—We set up loans based on transparent discussions with the client so that the final product is optimized
- Close and get funds—Once the applicant accepts the product, our legal team finalizes the documents to release funding

Our funding timeline spans 3–14 days. Since HMLS products are asset-based, we don’t need hardcore documents like bank statements, home country utility bills, or recommendation letters. For foreign national applicants, we pay attention to two aspects before approval:
- Identity verification—You can qualify without a Visa or Green Card. A passport is enough
- The business entity—We prefer lending to foreign nationals with a U.S.-based real estate company for compliance reasons (you can register a company easily even without a Social Security number)
HMLS Foreign National Loan Program—Structure
Foreign national loans can be overpriced due to limited market availability, but not at HMLS. We offer standard hard money rates to all our clients, with no hidden costs. Here’s our sample loan structure:
Interest only (no amortization)
Up to 70%
No—if repaid after six months
What Is a Foreign National Loan, and When To Apply for One?
A foreign national loan allows non-citizens to purchase or refinance properties without a Social Security number or FICO score. The loan is not government-backed and requires a different set of paperwork.
Regular mortgage or refinance products are out of reach for non-U.S. residents because they cannot fulfill the federal lending guidelines of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. As a result, temporary residents or resident aliens have no option but to explore non-traditional products designed for them. These loans can be applied toward:
- Commercial and residential property investments
- Self-occupied vacation homes
- Renovation and construction projects
Most lenders require the title of the property to be tied to a U.S. corporation instead of a personal name because it simplifies the compliance logistics.
Foreign National Loan Requirements—What Most Lenders Ask For
While securing foreign national home loans is a straightforward way to increase property holdings in the U.S., meeting the relevant paperwork demands is a time-consuming chore.
Based on the requirements specified by major banks and mortgage companies, the following documents are commonly requested:
- Income proof (non-salaried individuals need to file a CPA-certified proof)
- Existing bank accounts, statements, and recommendation letters from the U.S. or origin country
- Company background papers (articles of incorporation, website details, etc.)
- Signed passport
- Current visa or visa waiver (B-1, B-2, H-2, H-3, I, J-1, J-2, 0-2, P-1, P-2, TN NAFTA, and Laser Visa are typically accepted)
- Proof of credit standing (from origin country)
- Origin country address proof
- Asset and debt schedules (for calculating Debt Service Coverage Ratio or DSCR)
- Purchase contract or lease document
Some lenders also ask for reliable documents attesting to past real estate experiences.
