Benefits of the EB-5 Program
- No Quota Backlogs – Unlike many employment and family-based green card categories, the EB-5 investor category has not experienced the multi-year backlogs and attendant lengthy waiting times to obtain a green card.
- No Sponsor Needed – As foreign investors commit their own personal funds, neither family or employer sponsorship is required.
- Approved Regional Center Investment Programs (If applicable) – If an investor chooses to invest through an approved EB-5 Regional Center (as opposed to a direct investment into a project), s/he may choose from one of the many approved centers to invest in pre-arranged programs for the lower investment amount of $500,000, in addition to the administrative fees.
- Permanent Residency Options – The foreign investor has the option to enter a limited partnership with limited or no day-to-day management responsibilities over the investment. In this situation, s/he has the liberty to live and work in the Unities States in any desired capacity.
