The United States of America offers an immigration program for those seeking to invest and immigrate to the country. Offering plenty of socioeconomic benefits, such as better employment opportunities, better higher education and health systems, and overall improved standards of living, the United States is an ideal choice for immigrants seeking a better life.
In 1990, the United States Congress created the EB-5 program for granting immigrant visas to high-net-worth foreign investors with the requirement of investing in an enterprise that creates jobs for American workers. Investors as well as their immediate families are able to obtain conditional residency in two years, followed by a Green Card (a permanent residency) in the U.S. by which they are entitled to live, work or retire anywhere within the country.
The EB-5 Regional Center Scheme: the applicant must make an investment of $555,000
($500,000 is refundable after 5 years) in a selected and pre-approved project located in a
rural or high unemployment area in the United States, in which the applicant’s investment
must create 10 full-time jobs.
