The EB-5, also known as the USA Immigrant Investor program, was created through the Immigration Act of 1990 (IMMACT90) by the United States Congress. The program was established to stimulate the U.S. economy by granting permanent residency to foreign entrepreneurs along with the right to work in the United States after they have invested in an American commercial enterprise. The Immigrant Investor Pilot Program was launched in 1993 by Congress to increase interest in the EB-5 visa program.
To be able to apply for this program, you should be at least 18 years of age, in good health, and without a criminal record.
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 in a new US company. The minimum investment is US$1,800,000 and must lead to the direct employment of at least 10 qualified US workers. The investor is also required to be active in the day-to-day activities of the company, or its policy formulation.
An investment of at least US$ 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.
