In our previous blogs, we explained how you could get a green card through your family and/or through an offer of employment. In this blog, we will briefly explain how you can get a green card if you are an investor/entrepreneur who wants to make a commercial investment in an enterprise that creates new jobs in the U.S.
According to the EB-5 Immigration Investor Program of the USCIS, investors (and their spouses and unmarried children under 21) who make an investment in a commercial enterprise in the U.S. and who plan to create or preserve ten permanent full time jobs for qualified United States workers, are eligible to apply for a green card. The green card identifies its holder as a United States lawful permanent resident, with right to enter, exit, live and work in the United States for his entire life as long as the green card is renewed.
The difference between this EB-5 investment category and other investment visas is that you must invest $1,000,000, or at least $500,000 in a targeted employment area (high unemployment or rural area) in order to get your green card or conditional permanent residence. One of the major advantages of investing in this immigrant investor program is that even though you apply as an investor, your family can obtain a green card through the investment.
Once you apply for your visa at the U.S. consulate (if you are outside the U.S) and your visa is approved, you and your family will come to the U.S. and obtain a conditional green card. After 2 years, you and your family will obtain an unconditional green card.
