The most powerful country in the world and the only remaining Super Power, the United States of America attracts people from around the globe who seek to reside, invest or conduct business in the country. The country has a complicated visa and residential permit regime and there are a number of categories for obtaining an US Visa.
For the High Net Worth individual, among the most preferred is the EB-5 Investor Visa Program which enables the individual to obtain permanent Resident Status (also called ‘Green Card’) within a very short period of time. The program requires an investment of US $ 1 Million to create at least 10 direct jobs or US $ 500,000 if the investment is made in a rural area or an area of High Unemployment.
There are no requirements of any past experience in managing a business, age or any specific language requirements to be eligible for the scheme. However, the investment must be made from legitimate funds. The program however has various other nuances including supervised and unsupervised processes and a possible progression towards a citizenship, which can be provided on request.
