Investment-Based Immigration to the U.S.
The EB-5 preference category allows investors a direct path to attaining permanent residence in the United States for themselves, their spouses and their unmarried children.
There are two paths specifically designed for investors to enter the United States:
- EB-5 – The EB-5 immigrant investor visas allow investors and their immediate family members to get permanent residence (Greencards) with a minimum $1 million investment in a business that also creates at least 10 jobs for U.S. workers. The investment can in either in a new, restructured or reorganized business, or an existing business that was expanded by forty percent.
The investment can be as little as $500,000 if it is made within a “Regional Center” or “Targeted Employment Area.” Utah has a number of these areas that qualify as Targeted Employment Areas.
EB-5 permanent residence is initially granted as a conditional residence for two year. After the two-year period, the Investor must file an application to remove conditions and get permanent greencard.
- E-2 – Non-immigrant investor visas allow investors from Treaty Countries to enter the United States for a period of two years with the possibility of subsequent renewals. The level of investment can be as low as $100,000. Entry to the United States must be for the purpose of running the business.
Both of these avenues for entering the United States are fairly complex, and could easily complicate your plans for developing a business and attaining permanent residence or non-immigrant status in the United States. Experienced and skilled attorneys can make sure teh process is handled correctly so that your investment, time and efforts are protected.
