Are there lenders who offer car loans to non-permanent residents?

Answered by Car Loans Expert Johnny on March 2, 2021

I'm a non-permanent resident who's in the U.S. for work purposes. I'd like to buy a car so I can get around more easily. Would I qualify for a loan?

While most lenders do not offer loans to non-permanent residents, there are some that will work with you. You will usually need to provide the lender with your visa, a letter from your employer, payment documents, and proof that you are a legal resident. Be aware, though, that if your visa is close to its expiration date, it is unlikely that lenders will work with you.

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
