Russia is by far the largest country in the world, and it possesses one of the world’s richest and most influential cultures. However, as I’ve met and spoken with Russian clients as part of my law practice, I’ve found that Russian parents and American parents aren’t so different. No matter where they live, parents around the world want to know that they are doing the best for their children’s futures.
Children amaze us with their talents, abilities, intelligence, and skill. It’s natural to want to foster those gifts—and to worry about how to give them the right opportunities to develop into successful young adults. If you’re a Russian parent, you may already be wondering where to find the best schools to complete your child’s education or how he or she can get a strong start after graduation. You may also be wondering if those opportunities may be found in another country, whether temporarily or permanently.
“Immigrant Investor” Parents Give Children Access to Diverse Educational Opportunities in the U.S.
You may call me biased, but I strongly believe that the United States offers an incredible number of avenues for students to prepare for a successful future. The EB-5 “immigrant investor” program helps Russian families access the colleges and universities that best fit their children’s needs, without the need to worry about limits on foreign-student enrollment. After parents make a qualifying investment in the U.S. economy, the green card provided by the EB-5 visa allows students to apply to the schools—even medical and graduate schools—of their choice, as well as work anywhere they choose after graduation. If desired, green cards can also be the first step on the path to full United States citizenship, while also providing other qualified family members the opportunity to obtain a permanent green card.

The only way to know if the EB-5 program is the right fit for your family is to get informed. I highly recommend that you start by requesting a free copy of my book, Complete Guide to the EB-5 Green Card. This book clearly explains the benefits of the EB-5 visa program, and it will help you understand what to expect from the application process.
As you move forward, you may find it helpful to have an experienced immigration lawyer prepare your EB-5 petition, but it’s very important to take the time to choose the right immigration attorney for you.
