What is TradePoint Atlantic (TPA)

TradePoint Atlantic (TPA) is easily one of the most prestigious, sought-after and safest EB5 development projects operating in the USA right now.

The 3,100 acre project is transforming what was once the country’s largest steel manufacturing facility into one of the largest and most strategically significant intermodal
global logistics hubs.

The fact that the U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Service has approved TPA as a qualifying EB5 investment, including its Business Plan and Job Creation Report, means there is little risk of rejection of an applicant’s visa petition except if the applicant cannot adequately document his/her legal source of funds.
