EB-5 Immigrant Investor program | Investing not just for Money but for US Citizenship

Tuesday, October 26, 2010

Since 1990, investors have the chance to facilitate their entry to the US via the EB-5 Immigrant Investor program. A big headstart to obtain that all important US citizenship.

Simply put, the US government are enticing investors to put their money into the US economy not only for direct profit but the great opportunity to become citizens. Now more than ever, the US need an infusion of investments to the country to generate more jobs.

A businessman can enter the US through the EB-5 program if he/she will invest on a new business creating at least 10 jobs or save a struggling one. He or she and immediate family can then apply for a green card and be conditional permanent residents. After 5 years, they can apply for citizenship.

As close as calling it as "buying your US citizenship", the price of investment starts at $500,000 for regional centers. And there are 3,000 investor visas set aside for these regional centers. Of course, there are still other qualifications to meet. The fact that it is by way of investing in a business, there obviously lies the responsibility of keeping the business afloat for the next two years at least.

But by then, those investors not only have a continuing business but a foot on the door of becoming full-pledge Americans. For more information on the EB-5 immigrant investor program, click here.
