Investors who want to come to the United States can apply to do so through the investment visa program. In order to qualify for this type of visa, you don't need family members in the country or a labor certification. Instead, you have to be willing and ready to invest money in the United States economy.
When you are applying for an investment visa, you must be sure that your paperwork is properly completed. We can help you to go over your visa application and can help you learn more about the process for getting this type of visa.
The EB-5 visa is the visa that investors should attempt to secure if they can meet the requirements for the program. In order to qualify, you have to invest $1 million into the economy by building a new business that will employ at least 10 workers. Those workers must be U.S. workers who have a full-time employment status.
Immigration law provides for 10,000 investment visas to be issued each year. Half of those visas are now being issued through the Regional Center pilot program. That program requires a smaller investment of $500,000 and is only available in certain economic areas. Other criteria might apply.
We can help you to learn about the criteria for the investment visa you would like to secure. We understand that securing an EB-5 visa might only be one step on your path toward becoming a citizen or permanent resident of this country. If you opt to pursue citizenship or a green card, we can help you through those processes, too.
