The EB-5 Visa serves as a tool that investors can use in order to travel to the U.S. and apply for permanent residency and later citizenship. The program is not limited to applicants from specific treaty nations so it opens the opportunity to most people around the world. With the EB-5 visa, investors can bring their entire immediate family to the U.S. where they will also be granted status and they may work, study, and retire anywhere in the United States.
The EB-5 visa does not require an employer to sponsor the applicant, nor does it demand the applicant to have any forms of specialized knowledge, skills, or experience. Upon approval, the investor can bring his spouse and unmarried children younger than 21 to the U.S. and the family will then be granted a conditional green card. If all goes well, after two years the investor and his family will have the conditional part of the green card removed and after about 5 years of being granted conditional permanent residency, the investor and his family can become naturalized U.S. citizens.
The EB-5 visa serves as another alternative for investors to travel to the U.S. It provides the investor the ability to reside anywhere in the U.S., grants access to public education and in-state tuition at public universities for the investor’s family, and requires no sponsor. It liberates the investor from certain constraints that are typically found in other visas.
