The smart investor always looks for the best option and tries to minimize his risks, lately, the EB-5 alternative is gaining strength among investors seeking residency with the path to American citizenship.
The EB-5 or Investment Visa was created to stimulate the country's economy. Large Real Estate developers have built projects that meet the requirements of the law and very few people know about it. Obtaining a legal status in the USA is an essential matter, especially for investors, there are many types of investment, but the difference is in the project and who executes it.
Investors don't want to deal with premises, employees, or inventories, they just want to make an investment and expect a return, and if this guarantees your legal status that is much better.
What is EB-5?
It is a Visa where the applicant must invest in a new commercial company that guarantees the creation of new jobs (at least 10) full-time for 2 years after the investment is executed, the applicant will enjoy, together with her/his family, a permanent.
In 1990 the immigration service "USCIS" through Congress created a visa to stimulate the country's economy called EB-5 "Fifth Preference" which was ratified in 1992 to promote the economy with foreign investment, President Obama extended this law last year through April 28, 2017, in the amount of $ 500,000 per application. Now the investment amount is $1,000,000 or $1.9MM depending on the area.
To apply for this type of visa, the Immigration service has set a series of conditions and requirements that the applicant must fully comply with, among them is the proof of the legitimacy of the funds to be invested, which is of utmost importance, and the qualification of the new company (in this particular we recommend consulting with an Immigration lawyer and Real Estate Advisor.)
The USCIS, through the regional centers, controls the quota and the limitations and the projects that qualify for the EB-5 Visa. The large Real Estate developers have taken advantage of that law to raise projects that combine with the program to attract foreign investors Since several developments are available in the Miami Metropolitan area, the difficult thing is knowing how to differentiate between the profitable, the safe, and the bad ones.
