Project TPA

The project comes under the EB 5 Priority project which means the entire investment is completely refundable even if the project fails to meet the final outcome.

Know about TPA

Trade Point Atlantic (TPA) is easily one of the most prestigious, sought after and safest EB5 development projects taking shape in USA right now. The 3100 acre project offers to transform what was once the world’s largest steel manufacturing facility into one of the largest and most strategically significant intermodal global logistics hubs.
The project comes under the EB 5 Priority project which means the entire investment is completely refundable even if the project fails to meet the final outcome. This is a huge advantage compared to any other EB 5 project where the investment is considered “at risk” meaning the investment is lost in case the project fails. Being a pre approved EB5 project there, is almost no way that a EB5 visa application could get rejected in TPA other than questionable source of funds.
