The American Dream: EB-5 Visa Opportunities
The American Dream is alive and well, and people across the world are fulfilling their own U.S. immigration goals through the EB-5 Visa Program. Compared with other countries, the United States is still a safe place to invest money, raise a family and start a business. The EB-5 visa and the various paths it offers allows immigrants to live and work anywhere in the country. There are even passive investment opportunities for those who don?t wish to work, or would like to work someplace other than the EB-5 project they invest in.
The United States foundation was built by immigrant communities, and despite economic hardship across the globe, people still flock to the U.S. for better opportunities.
How can the EB-5 visa benefit you and your family? U.S. immigration law is structured in a way that doesn?t offer many opportunities for permanent residency (green card) for people without ties to the United States. Unless you have a relative to sponsor you, or an employer willing to sponsor you, the EB-5 visa may be your only option.
The EB-5 Visa Program allows foreign nationals the opportunity to make a qualified investment into a U.S. business in exchange for their green card. There are no English language requirements, family ties or job offers needed. Provided the investor invests the requisite funds they likely qualify.
What are your options for EB-5 Investments? Most EB-5 investment opportunities offer flexible options for potential investors. Depending on your needs and goals, you can take an active role in the project or a completely passive role. The investment amount is $1 Million but may be reduced to $500,000 in certain designated areas.
Often, an investor wishes to fund the EB-5 investment and not worry about the day-to-day operations of the business and immigration requirements. This is absolutely possible and encouraged by immigration attorneys. As an EB-5 investor, you don?t want to be burdened with EB-5 compliance and immigration issues ? leave those worries up to the EB-5 project management.
Once invested, you are free to live and work (or not work) anywhere in the United States.
