EB-5 Visa Program
The EB-5 program provides the opportunity to invest in a U.S. Immigration-approved enterprise and to apply for a green card immediately. If you are: considering moving to the U.S. permanently, a retiree or planning to retire in the U.S., want to educate your children in the U.S., or are simply looking for a lifestyle change – Illustrated Properties is here to help.
What is the EB-5 Program?
The EB-5 visa program was created in 1990 as a way of attracting investment to the U.S. to create new jobs and stimulate the U.S. economy. Administered by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the EB-5 program sets aside green cards each year for foreign investors who inject capital into enterprises known as Regional Centers.
When you select a Regional Center and invest 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.
The program requires immigrant investors to make an at-risk investment that creates no fewer than 10 American jobs in order to create more job opportunities in the U.S.
What does it mean for you?
There are a number of benefits you will enjoy once your green card is issued, such as: college fees at the same rates as U.S. citizens, begin a business in the U.S., seek employment or manage business interests outside of the U.S., or, if you are a retiree, just enjoy the lifestyle.
