US GREEN CARD VISA INVESTMENT
BRIC Group offers investors the opportunity to obtain a US Green Card via the EB-5 visa investment program. This program offers foreign investors the opportunity to invest in a US commercial enterprise and obtain permanent residency (a green card) for themselves, their spouse and their unmarried children under 21. After obtaining the green card, the investor may become a US citizen.
Operated by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the program was established by the United States Congress in 1990 to increase investment into the US economy and raise capital to create employment through private enterprise. In late 2016, the program is due for revision by US Congress and access may be restricted or qualification conditions made more stringent.
EB-5 INVESTMENT OPTIONS
The EB-5 visa program offers two options for foreigners looking to obtain a green card.
Direct investment involves sole investment in a commercial enterprise with active management of the business which results in the creation of 10 direct jobs.
Investment via a regional centre, removes the requirement for active management as it is the regional centres’ responsibility to manage the projects by pooling investments from numerous EB-5 investors and ensuring job creation requirements are met.
Each options carries varying levels of investment, active involvement and levels of risk.
