EB-5 PROGRAM – Get your Green Card for investment!
Program participants can be citizens of any country who have invested at least $800,000 in business projects approved by the US government for this program. After 4-6 years, the entire investment amount is returned back to the investor. In exchange for investments, a foreign investor and all members of his family (including children under 21 who are not married) receive a residence permit - Green Card - in a simplified order based on one package of documents. Moreover, after five years, the investor and his family members can (if desired) apply for an American passport. The term of consideration of the application is from 12 to 36 months. The program operates under constant supervision of the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
The investment amount is fully refunded to the investor after five years. However, depending on the project and terms of investment, the return dates can vary from project to project. Different projects pay different profits on investments. On average, the percentage varies from 0.25% to 5% per annum.
In addition to the investment contribution of $800,000 or 1,05 million (depending on a project), an additional administrative fee is to be paid, which on average ranges from $ 50,000 to $ 70,000, depending on a project. In addition, state fees and immigration lawyer services are paid separately. The average cost of preparing a package of documents for EB-5 program starts at $ 15,000.
You can. The main requirement for investments is their legal origin. If a bank issued you a loan, it means that it trust you. In addition, there is a loan approval from a bank. There is no reason to doubt the legality of the money.
The percentage of refusal on petitions directly depends on how well the package of documents for filing to US Immigration Service is correctly prepared. The better the package of documents is prepared, the less likely the failure. That is why one of the important stages of participating in EB-5 program is the choice of an immigration lawyer.
One of the main reasons for stopping the process is refusal of an investor himself to participate in the program, as well as inability to provide the documents required by the US Immigration Service by an investor.
As a rule, such cases are extremely rare. Basically, all EB-5 projects work without failures and there is almost no risk of stopping the project. However, in the event that the project was stopped for some economic or other reasons, the investor's money must be returned. At the same time, your Green Card will be canceled, and the project in which you invested money will be stripped of accreditation. If you wish, you can repeat this procedure without any penalties.
At the same time, one must bear in mind that there is a risk of loss of investment. It is for this reason, if you decided to participate in EB-5 program, very much attention should be paid to choosing a project for investment. You should always pay attention to the following parameters of the project: company history, experience in working with EB-5 program, number of projects already implemented under EB-5 program and, of course, whether there are the company’s projects in the USA under which investors have already received their investments back.
Since submission of the application for participation in EB-5 program, it takes an average from 12 to 15 months. You can enter the USA at any time. However, if entry in the country under the approved petition is meant, you can enter the United States immediately after you have obtained approval from the US Immigration Service.
One of the advantages of participating in EB-5 program is the fact that the members of the investor's family can participate under one investment amount. Family members are understood to mean: husband or wife and all minor children under 21 years of age, if they are not married.
