The EB-5 program is a unique U.S. immigration program for foreign investors who are interested in acquiring a green card to the United States. While many prospective immigrants have to wait years for the chance to enter the United States, foreign investors who choose to participate in the EB-5 program are given preference and a fast track for entry and citizenship. The basic amount required to invest is $1 million, although that amount is reduced to $500,000 if the investment is made in a high unemployment area or a rural region (also known as a Targeted Employment Area or TEA.) Once an investment is made, the investor obtains a conditional two-year green card. Within the 90-day period before the conditional permanent residence expires, the investor must submit evidence documenting that the full required investment has been made and that 10 jobs have been maintained, created or will be created within a reasonable time period. At the end of the two-year provisional term, the investor must show that they have maintained their investment and have created or saved at least 10 jobs before their status is changed and they become permanent green card holders.

Why Choose World Migration?
The EB-5 unlike other residential programs is more complex with regards to where the applicant’s funds are invested. This one factor determines the successful return of the funds invested. There are 100s of projects that accept the EB-5 investment and ultimately you will get a green card. However, the return of the applicant’s investment most of the time is unclear. World Migration deals with one of the best licensed US attorneys and project builders and thus our options boil down to a very few projects that we provide to our clients. We make sure the projects we display have a track record of successfully returning the investment. An applicant will also get all legal support in terms of the immigration once they reach the US
