Are you considering moving to the USA permanently?
Are you a retiree or planning to retire there?
Do you want to educate your children in the US?
Or are you looking for a lifestyle change?
There are many different reasons why people from all over the world want to move to the US – and whatever your reasons, we can help.
A popular route for those seeking to move to the USA with a green card for them, their spouse and children under 21 is the EB-5 visa program. This program provides the opportunity to invest in a US Immigration approved enterprise and to apply for a green card immediately.
What is the EB-5 program?
The EB-5 visa program was created in 1990 as a way of attracting investment to the USA to create new jobs. Administered by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the EB-5 program sets aside 10,000 green cards each year for foreign investors who inject capital into enterprises known as regional centres. A key requirement is that for each investor of $500,000 the regional centre must create ten new full time jobs for US nationals within two years.
When you have selected a Regional Centre and invested your funds, your immigration attorney will submit your green card application. After four to nine months you will be issued with a conditional green card, valid for an initial period of two years.
After twenty-one months you can then apply for a permanent green card. At this stage USCIS will require proof that you have invested the $500,000 and that the ten new jobs have been created by your $500,000 investment.
What does it mean to me?
From the day that your green card is issued, you will enjoy a number of benefits: for instance you can take advantage of college fees at the same rates as US citizens, start a business in the US, seek employment or manage business interests outside of the US. If you are a retiree, you are free to do nothing more than enjoy the lifestyle.
