Many clients are impressed by the improved opportunities in the US, and often express interest in migration. The good news: Investing in the US property market is not only a way to secure life-long revenue, but also a strong opportunity to obtain a green card to the US.
The EB-5 visa program is a method of obtaining a green card for foreign nationals who invest in America. To obtain the visa, individuals must invest either:
• $1,000,000 in their own business anywhere in US and create 10 jobs, OR
• $500,000 in a targeted employment area, pooling money into an investment and also creating 10 jobs
Regional centres provide investments for people to qualify under the US Government guidelines, which a green card achieved within 6 months.
An investment of $ 1,000,000 or $ 500,000 in a rural area will provide the right to claim a green card, thus providing the investor with permanent residency and permission to work in the US.
