U.S. Immigrant Investor Program (EB-5)
The U.S. Investor Program (EB-5 program) is the fastest way for wealthy individuals to obtain a Green Card for themselves, their spouse and unmarried children under the age of 21. The main requirement for this program is an investment of $500,000 US in an eligible business in the United States that will create 10 jobs.
With an investment of $500,000 US
a candidate can obtain a Green Card
for his family in a delay of 14 to 18 months
It now seems assured that the US Government will update the EB-5 program and raise the minimum amount invested to anywhere between 600,000 USD and 800,000 USD. The modifications could happen at any moment between now and the deadline of December 11th 2015. You can find more details here (see SEC. 4(b)(1)(i) of bill S.1501) and here.
Advantages of the U.S. Investor Program
The goal of the Immigrant Investor Program is to stimulate the U.S. economy. With your investment, you will become a limited partner in a business in the United States. There is no need to actively participate in the management of the business. The investment must create or preserve at least 10 full-time jobs within 2 years. You will get back 66% of your investment after a period of 2 ½ years. The remaining 33% will be returned to you 24 months later. You will have recuperated your entire investment after a period of 4.5 years.
