USA EB5 VISA - Investor Immigrant Program
Steps Need to Follow to Get USA EB5 Visa
This is also known as the Investor Immigrant Program. It is a flexible visa; the requirements are not strict concerning business experience, age or language. Residents with USA EB5 visa are not mandated, and professional relations in their home country are also not hindered.
On the basis of a qualifying U.S investment, EB5 visa provides you a green card before you migrate. You are not required to manage the day to day affairs of a business; you need to invest in a new business.
The EB5 Adjudications Policy Memorandum guides U.S Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) administration of the EB5 program. This document builds on prior policy guidance for adjudicating EB5 and applies to and binds on all USCIS employees.
EB5 investment can be in the form of equipment, inventory, secured indebtedness, cash, tangible property or the equivalent in cash which is valued based on U.S dollar fair-market value.
When the petition of the foreign national investor gets approved, the investors together with their dependents will be granted conditional permanent residence which is valid for 2 years. It gives eligible applicants the opportunity to gain permanent residency.
