Why Choose EB-5?
Created in 1990, EB-5 is a type of immigration visa that allows eligible applicants to bypass long waits and red tape to quickly gain residency status in the United States. While many prospective immigrants have to wait years for the chance to enter the country, foreign investors who choose to participate in the EB-5 program are given preference for immigration. Some key details of the EB-5 visa program include:
- Applicants must invest $1,000,000, or $500,000 in some targeted employment areas, into new or struggling businesses in the U.S.
- Applicants must be involved, in some way, in the management of the business
- Offers a way for individuals to quickly obtain a green card and entry to the U.S.
- 10,000 EB-5 visas are available each year
These features make the EB-5 program an attractive option for foreign investors who want to relocate to the United States, especially those with a family. An investor’s spouse and children can qualify for an EB-5 visa, which helps to simplify the immigration process during your family’s move.
