Why EB-5

Why EB-5

Congress created the EB-5 Program in 1990 to stimulate the U.S. economy through job creation and capital investment by foreign investors. In 1992, Congress created the Immigrant Investor Program, Regional Center Program, which allows investors who invest in commercial enterprises associated with regional centers approved by USCIS to apply for an EB-5 visa (U.S. Green Card).

The EB-5 program is a visa program that allows foreign nationals to obtain a U.S. green card by investing in a U.S. business that creates jobs for U.S. workers. Here are some reasons why someone might choose to use the EB-5 program:

  1. Obtain a U.S. Green Card: The primary benefit of the EB-5 program is that it allows foreign nationals to obtain a U.S. green card for themselves, their spouse, and any children under the age of 21.
  2. Potential for Permanent Residency: If the investment meets the program requirements, the investor and their family can become permanent residents of the United States.
  3. No Job Offer Required: Unlike many other U.S. visa programs, the EB-5 program does not require a job offer from a U.S. employer. This can be especially beneficial for individuals who wish to work for themselves or start their own business in the United States.
  4. Opportunity for Investment: The EB-5 program allows foreign nationals to invest in a U.S. business and potentially earn a return on their investment.
  5. Education Opportunities: Permanent residents in the U.S. are generally eligible for in-state tuition rates at public colleges and universities, which can save substantial amounts of money on education costs.

It’s important to note that the EB-5 program has specific requirements that must be met, including minimum investment amounts and job creation requirements. Therefore, it’s important to thoroughly research and consult with experienced professionals before deciding to use the EB-5 program.
