If you’re an investor looking to emigrate and invest in the US we can help you navigate the process through an EB-5 Program.
The EB-5 immigrant investor category allows a person and his or her family members to get a green card (i.e. live permanently in the US) by investing a certain amount of money in the U.S. and creating or saving 10 U.S. jobs. The minimum amount of money to invest is $500,000 if one invests in a rural or high unemployment area. Otherwise they must invest at least $1,000,000.
