In today's world, more and more people are striving to connect their lives with the United States of America, go there for permanent residence and find a job. In addition, many people want to move to the United States and start their own business in a new country and, thereby, make the American dream a reality. American law provides for the possibility of obtaining various investment visas for such applicants. Unfortunately, the possibility of obtaining E-1 and E-2 visas is not always open to citizens of various states, including the Russian Federation, since the issuance of visas of these categories depends on many factors, including political ones.
When applying for this visa, certain documents are required, including those disclosing the amount invested. Without the help of an experienced specialist in the field of law, who, among other things, has knowledge of economic issues, it is quite difficult to apply for this visa. The procedure for obtaining an EB-5 investment visa is quite complicated, because US immigration law has many nuances, especially considering that American law does not belong to the civil law system, unlike Russia and Europe (excluding the United Kingdom). Thus, the EB-5 investment visa is issued to foreign citizens who have invested more than $500,000 in a US company and contributed to the creation of 10 or more jobs. It allows the applicant and his or her family to obtain a residence permit in the United States (Green Card).
The right to receive an EB-5 investment visa appears if the following criteria are met:
- the applicant has invested at least $500,000 in a US company;
- investments contributed to the creation of 10 or more new jobs in the United States;
- the applicant has proven the legality of the origin of the invested funds;
- investments must be "risky" in terms of return on capital.
- In addition, obtaining an EB-5 investment visa provides its holder with a number of the following benefits:
- the possibility of obtaining a Green Card for two generations of the family, first for 2 years, then for 10 years;
- the right to work for the whole family;
- the possibility of obtaining a residence permit for three generations of the family for 5 years;
- the cost of education in US colleges and universities at the prices of residents;
- free entry into the United States;
- you can live and work in any state of the USA;
- high quality of life, economic stability;
- credit prospects: purchase of movable and immovable property at rates for residents;
There are no requirements for work experience, education, knowledge of English, or age.
However, the process of applying for an EB-5 investment visa is quite time-consuming and costly. In this case, it is necessary to fill out a certain number of documents and pass an interview at the consular organization. Of course, you can apply for an EB-5 investment visa yourself, however, qualified legal assistance will eliminate the risks of obtaining an EB-5 investment visa and significantly speed up the process of obtaining it.
