An EB-5 Visa is one of the nicest visas as it allows the client to run your own business, and invest here in the U.S. . Additionally, their spouse and unmarried children under 21 years old can come as beneficiaries of the EB-5 Investment Visa Petition. The children will be able to go to school in the U.S. without having to get a separate student visa (as long as they are not in college.) If approved, then they can apply to Consulate Process to the U.S. If later approved, then a Conditional Green Card will be given for 2 years. The Client/Investor will later be able to apply for the permanent Green Card assuming that all of the requirements have been met. A great deal of the success of the EB-5 Petition is how it is prepared. The investment in the business needs to b e $1,000,000 unless it is in a targeted area. In that case, the investment can be $500,000. We can also be retained to do the incorporation.
An alternative to starting their own business, is to invest in a Regional Center. My firm can give you a list of Regional Centers that are currently in existence and the Client/Investor can choose which one he or she wants to invest in. Afterwords, my firm can prepare the EB-5 Visa Petition. The Client would need to be on the Board of Directors, but would not have to do the Client could live and work in the U.S. anywhere they wanted.
