The EB-5 Visa Program also known as Immigration through Investment Program is designed to stimulate the U.S. economy and job growth while allowing international investors to become lawful permanent residents of the United States. The EB-5 Visa Program is one of the most accommodating immigrant investor opportunities in the world as there are no language or education requirements, no need to buy or manage a business, and no obligation to manage your investment. For foreign investors seeking the freedom and flexibility to live and work in the United States, the EB-5 Visa Program provides an excellent opportunity to obtain Green Cards. A Green Card provides Permanent Residency for the applicant, his or her spouse and any offspring under the age of 21.
Under the regulations, an investor who is approved for the EB-5 immigrant visa receives a “conditional” green card, which must be reissued after two years, subject to removal of conditions. Otherwise, the two cards offer the same rights and privileges. A conditional Green Card is a temporary Green Card valid for two years. One year and nine months after it is issued, a three-month window opens up during which an individual must file another application with the USCIS to verify that all of the funds have been invested and the required employment has been created. When the conditional resident status has been lifted, full resident status is granted and a permanent Green Card is issued.
The Different EB-5 Visa Options :-
There are two main EB-5 programs - the Regular EB-5 Visa Program and the EB-5 Regional Center Pilot Program.
