We review the web frequently, and we review the questions people ask, and we were reviewing it the other day and realized there’s a misconception, which I firmly believe is from the media and the people that are negative on EB-5. And the question people type in when they search on Google frequently is how do I buy a Green Card? And I want to make sure that I dispel that concept that EB-5 is about buying a Green Card.
In fact, EB-5 is about an investment, an investment in the American economy that results in 10 full-time positions for American citizens or permanent residents. It is purely an investment. And as you may know, there’re two paths: there’s the Regional Center path, where you investing in an approved business entity that’s been approved by USCIS to attract investors for the purposes of EB-5; or you have the alternative of creating your own business enterprise. But nowhere in the EB-5 law are we looking at something that resembles buying a Green Card. Again you’re making an important investment in the American economy that’s going to create jobs, and going to provide you, your spouse, and your minor children a chance to have permanent residency in the United States.
I hope this clears that misunderstanding. If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our office or call 415-221-2345.
