Since its inception, the United States has been a beacon of new opportunities, exciting possibilities, and fresh starts. Whether you wish to obtain an O visa as a person in the arts, film, television, music, or athletics, or whether you are looking to move to the U.S. to begin a new business or expand your current foreign operations, or invest to obtain a green card, navigating the immigration process can be confusing, complex, and overwhelming.
Understandably, you probably have many questions relating to the U.S. visa options that exist and which path is best suited for your career and future goals. You may be an artist, a film or television professional, musician, or athlete, with upcoming opportunities in the U.S., or you may be an investor wondering about the EB5 investment-based green card option and whether it is the right path for you and your family. As a professional, could you live and work in the United States and perhaps qualify for a Green Card?

Immigrant Visas (Green Cards) - Applications for Permanent Residency Allowing an Applicant to Live in the U.S.
EB-5 Investor Green Cards. Each year, 10,000 EB-5 visas are available to foreign investors who wish to immigrate to the United States. To qualify for the visa, immigrants must invest between $500,000 and $1 million in either a new or existing commercial enterprise that will improve the US economy and must create at least ten jobs. The amount that needs to be invested can depend on a number of factors including where the business is located, unemployment rates in the area, whether an area is considered rural and so forth. Two forms of the EB-5 green card exist, the first depending on an applicant investing in their own business which they themselves operate and the second, often much simpler and advantageous option, allowing for an investment in a USCIS approved regional investment center. The EB-5 process is complex and has many considerations. There are many advantages provided by the EB-5 process as opposed to other employment based categories such as the overall processing time, the fact that applicants can live anywhere in the U.S. (depending on which EB-5 route is chosen), as well as several other benefits which are discussed in detail in our EB-5 published book. For more information about the EB-5 process, in depth explanations about the process, comparisons of the two EB-5 routes, as well as a comparison of the EB-5 visa against other green card routes, please request our free Book, The Investor's Path to a Green Card. This publication has been written by our EB5 immigration lawyers.
