EB5 VISA

The United States of America means the "land of opportunity" to people everywhere. It is a beacon of liberty and free enterprise, attracting talented individuals from all over the world. Its military, political, and economic power far surpasses that of its nearest competitors.

The Employment Basis Fifth (EB-5) preference category visa is of particular interest to potential investors of high net worth. It is a visa category which allows foreign investors to obtain a US visa by capital investment in new commercial enterprises in the United States which provide job creation.

The EB-5 Immigrant Investor Visa Program was created in 1990, providing a method by which eligible foreign investors can gain lawful permanent residency(green card) in the United States of America.

UNO Capital specializes in processing this type of visa.

There are two options a potential investor can use to get an EB-5 visa:

DIRECT INVESTMENT 

Direct investment in a new US company. The minimum investment is US$1,800,000 and must lead to the direct employment of at least 10 qualified US workers. The investor is also required to be active in the day-to-day activities of the company, or its policy formulation.

TEA INVESTMENT  

An investment of at least US$ 900,000 in a Targeted Employment Area or TEA. Applicants may invest individually or via Regional Centers, which are federally approved organizations that link foreign investors with projects that need funding.

Additional Government fees will apply.

ABOUT THE COUNTRY

The United States of America attracts thousands of remains one of migrants and investors from all over the world. For most migrants and investors, it still remains the Land of Opportunities.

The EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program opens up an interesting residence possibility for investors that allow immigration to the United States of America. The US EB-5 Investor Program opens doors to allow permanent resident status (a ‘green card’) within a short period of time depending on your country of birth.

The program allows to set aside a certain number of visas for individuals who apply under a designated Regional Center Program, each with its own distinct industry or location approach. 

 

Investors usually invest USD 900,000 or in some cases USD 500,000 into one of the designated regional center projects, thereby becoming a limited partner in that particular regional center's new enterprise.

This is the standard processing time, but it may change if there are additional procedures/requirements requested by the government based on the applicant.
