Mexico holds a unique place in my heart. My sister attended the University of Mexico in Mexico City, where I spent several magical summers of my childhood. As the world’s fourth largest continent, South America is a place that over four hundred million people call home—and whether you speak of the Amazon or the Andes, there is simply no place on earth that offers such unparalleled beauty and diversity.
If you live in Latin America and have money to invest, you are in a unique position when it comes to immigrating to the U.S. You want to enjoy all of the freedoms given to U.S. citizens, including access to public schools and higher education and with an EB-5 visa, that dream can come true.
The EB-5 Visa Allows You and Your Family to Have the Best of Both Worlds
Foreign nationals who are looking to invest in the U.S. economy may qualify for a specialized investment visa known as the EB-5 visa. The EB-5 requires foreign business leaders to invest a significant amount of capital into an American business enterprise, creating jobs and benefitting the local community. If all of the conditions of the visa have been fulfilled after two years, a visa holder can apply to remove the conditions on the visa and transition to a permanent green card for themselves and their family members.
Of course, the EB-5 visa also allows significant benefits for the members of an investor’s family. Permanent Resident Green Card holders have the same admission privileges as U.S. citizens, allowing them to apply to and attend any university or college in the nation, including medical schools. After graduation, green card residents are free to work for any employer, anywhere in the U.S., without restriction—giving your children limitless professional opportunities. The EB-5 also offers a path to full U.S. citizenship, making it an attractive option for many families who want to establish a permanent legacy in America.
