Specializing in EB-5 Visas
for permanent U.S. residency for foreign investors
The EB-5 Immigrant Investor Visa Program (“EB-5 Visa Program”) is a U.S. visa system that offers the opportunity for foreign investors to obtain U.S. lawful permanent resident status (i.e., a Green Card) for themselves and their immediate family by making a qualifying investment.
Each year, the U.S. government makes available to the public 10,000 new EB-5 visas. A minimum of 3,000 of those visas are set aside for investors making investments in a project sponsored by an EB-5 Regional Center.
At present, there are no waiting lists to obtain an EB-5 visa. This could change in the future as the EB-5 Visa Program’s popularity continues to grow.
A Regional Center is an entity authorized by U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (“USCIS”) to sponsor investment projects that attract foreign investment into the United States.
Regional Centers require USCIS authorization to offer investments. The law that gives this authorization expires periodically. The current authorization expires on September 30, 2015. In the past, the law authorizing Regional Centers has been renewed, though it is difficult to predict what will happen in the future.
