The permanent visa via investment is one of the most under-utilized but important categories. It enables persons who invest a minimum of $500,000 to gain permanent residency within a relatively short space of time, usually within 12 months.
The investor needn’t have specific academic qualifications or extraordinary ability or a job offer in order to be approved for the Investor Visa.
He simply has to make a qualifying investment in order to satisfy the investment requirements of this USA Immigration visa .
There are two types of investment –
i. The orthodox EB-5 investment to either create a business or expand a business along with creation of job opportunities for US Citizens and/or U.S. Lawful Permanent Residents
ii. Investment into a U.S. Government approved Regional Center.
Regional Centers are approved by the U.S. government. All Regional Centers were established for the promotion of economic growth, including increased export sales, improved regional productivity, job creation, or increased domestic capital investment.
If you are interested in gaining permanent residency via the EB-5 Regional Center Program, please contact us as we may be able to refer you to a suitable “Regional Center”.
