I want to invest in the USA and get a green card, is the EB5 visa suitable for me?
EB5 investor Visa is suitable for people from all walks of life: professionals, business people, persons wanting to facilitate their children's education and attend US colleges and Universities, persons just seeking a new or better life in the United States, and persons wanting to retire in the United States. The EB-5 visa permits employment in the US for the Investor and their family. Quite simply, the EB-5 visa gives you the opportunity and flexibility to do what you want in the USA. If you don't want to actively manage your business, you should consider a regional center EB-5 investment.
What if I want to manage my own business?
If you want to manage your own business, consider an L-1 Visa (Non-Immigrant Intra-company Transferee), E-2 Visa (Non-Immigrant Treaty Investor), or EB-5 Alien Entrepreneur Investment by investing $1,000,000 into your own business which you control, and creating the necessary 10 new jobs within a new enterprise. If your goal is to have a Green Card and not to actively manage a business, it is more often cheaper and/or convenient and possibly with much less risk to utilize a structured investment program in the Regional Center EB-5 category rather than to start and maintain your own business.
