Becoming an Immigrant Investor in the United States

There are many good reasons to invest in the United States, and start a business. One of the most popular reasons for making such an investment is to obtain a green card via the coveted EB5 Visa. These visas allow those who invest a certain amount of money in the United States to move to the country with their family.

Generally when the immigrant is approved to make the investment they are given two years to complete the requirements of the program. This means they must have invested, created, maintained and documented the creation of 10 jobs over the course of the 2 years within 90 days of the expiry of the permit. If the immigrant has successfully created the jobs, or will create the jobs they will be granted permanent residency status.

The program itself has been controversial in the United States, where many view all immigrants and immigration as stealing American jobs. Though many argue the counter point, that the immigrant investor program should be used to boost the economy and fix crumbling domestic infrastructure.

If becoming an immigrant investor is attractive to you, then it is best to ensure you take the necessary steps to succeed in your new life.

1.)  Good Lawyers – The first thing you should do if you want to be an immigrant investor is research on quality law firms like Hirson Immigration that can help you to understand the intricacies of the EB5 Visa program. They will also be able to act as your agent in setting up the necessary contacts and business deals to successfully make your investment in the United States. Immigration lawyers cannot guarantee acceptance into the program, but high net worth individuals with a history of entrepreneurship typically make great candidates. Since the government limits any country to 7% of the total visa pool it is more competitive to obtain visas from a country like China, than from many South American locals.

2.)  Find a Good Investment – Next the investor must find a good investment. Investors are typically smart to invest in businesses they already know, as they will have 2 years to create the jobs, or show significant progress towards creating and maintaining the 10 jobs included in the investment deal.

3.)  Determining Where to Live – There are certain regional programs within the EB5 Visa program that lower the amount of capital required from the usual $1,000,000 to $500,000 these are rural areas with depressed economies in need of help creating new jobs. For an entrepreneur with the right skills these depressed local areas with low wage bases can be a great place to get into business, and succeed. Not to mention your family will be welcomed into the community with open arms when you start to provide gainful employment to the townspeople.
