Help for Foreign Investors
With recent changes to U.S. immigration laws, it is becoming increasingly more difficult to live and work in the United States. As such, finding a path to permanent residency and U.S. citizenship can be a complex challenge.
While immigration may be available to some through a family member or work sponsor, many individuals simply do not have a viable source of family or employment-based immigration. For individuals seeking an alternative solution, investment-based immigration may be the answer.
Immigration Through Investment
If you have one million dollars to invest you may be eligible to receive an EB-5 investor visa. In some cases, an investment of a half-million dollars may be all it takes to find your path to permanent residence, if the investment enterprise is located in a targeted employment area (TEA).
With the EB-5 program, foreign investors may be eligible to obtain permanent residency by investing in a USCIS designated regional center. The foreign investor has the opportunity to choose from many different regional centers across the country, most of which offer a variety of incentives.
With an EB-5 visa, you can legally live and work anywhere in the U.S. You may also petition to bring your immediate family to the U.S. Note: You and your family must meet certain requirements for an EB-5 visa, and each family member’s eligibility will be determined on an individual basis.
