EB5 Investor Visa


Created by the Immigration Act of 1990, the EB-5 invester immigration program , also known as EB5 visa or EB5 green card, offers a fast-track route to a U.S. green card. Applicants are required to invest a minimum of $500,000 (approximately 3.7 Crore Rupees) in prescribed government projects to receive their green card. Under the EB5 Visa program, the investor, spouse and kids below the age of 21 are eligible to be allotted permanent residence green cards. Applications are processed primarily on the basis of legal source of funds.

Once the visa petition is filled with USCIS, the amount may be transferred from the escrow to the project and will start earning interest. If the I-526 application is rejected for any reason other than mispresentation on behalf of the applicant, the entire amount will be refunded by the project bank to the investor

The investment is locked-in typically for 5 years from the date of funding. After earning 1% interest year-on-year, the principal amount is returned after the 5-year period has elapsed. This lock in period may vary from project to project.

Investment


The EB5 Visa program prescribes two types of investments. A general EB5 Visa is allocated to those individuals who can furnish a sound business plan to start a new business in USA. The business should involve a minimum investment of 1 million USD and the business is obligated to create a minimum of 10 jobs for local American citizens The other option to get green card through EB5 Visa route involves the regional centre program, which we promote. USCIS identifies certain financial companies with good track record of investing in real estate and infrastructure projects. A suitable project is also identified in a high unemployment area and is connected to regional centre.


For such programs, an investor has to invest just USD 500,000. No business has to be setup nor any employment to be created by the investor. The regional centre agrees to pay an annual interest to the investor and also return the principal amount in generally 5-6 years based on project feasibility. Such EB5 projects are very safe pathways to acquiring green card through EB5 visa. Trade Point Atlantic (TPA) is one of the most prestegious and safest projects in the entire EB5 Visa program
