Immigration to USA From the UAE

United States of America Immigration by - Investment EB-5 Visa

Under the EB5 Visa program, all foreign nationals willing to migrate to the United States of America must invest in the US economy and the investment should be able to create up to ten(10) jobs for prospective employees. The investment may be by means of reviving a business facing bankruptcy or creating one which is new with the ability to provide the specified number of jobs. Upon adequate fulfillment of this pre-requisite, investors bag a green card (permanent residency) to cover themselves and family members (precisely, spouse and children below the age of 21 years).

A major benefit of the EB5 route is that it is a faster process to receiving the green card, unlike other permanent residency application routes. Upon receiving the green card under the EB5 program, all holders can live and work anywhere in the United States of America and enjoy all resident benefits such as reduced fees for education and healthcare.

There is no sponsor, English language or other requirements under this program.

An investor may choose between investing directly into the US or indirectly via regional centers. Many prefer the latter route as it ensures more peace of mind to a larger extent than the former.

Both programs require that the investor make a capital investment of either $500,000 or $1,000,000 in a commercial enterprise located within the United States (Required investment depends on whether the investment is in a designated Targeted Employment Area (TEA) or not).

Regional Centres help to facilitate investments made by investors by locating the right project that is viable and able to ensure to an extent that the investment is not lost at any given time or moment throughout the period.

Unlike direct investment, a regional center investment commits the monitoring process into the hands of experts like us. This means that the investor will sit back and relax while we take on all risk management factors into consideration and help to manage the investment.

Here’s an Example.

An interested candidate contacts us to manage the EB5 investment. We advise the regional center route. As soon as the candidate is convinced, the regional center projects are shown and explained to the investor. It could be a project such as a hotel, restaurant, hostel or school. The investment creates employment for people and part of the project is traced back to the investment of the candidate. The process for the Visa then continues therefrom.
