Each RC has a certain level of risk, and our team of specialists will assist you with the most knowledgeable analysis in order to determine which RC is right for you.

Advantages of the EB-5 program:


  • Foreign nationals who obtain a permanent visa can enjoy all the benefits of any other United States resident
  • The visa creates ease of access to the United States for trade or business
  • The visa holder and his/her qualified family members are entitled to attend public schools including enrollment in colleges and universities. If attending a home state university, significant cost savings may be obtained
  • The health programs of the United States Government are also available including Social Security
  • The investors have no obligation or requirement to accept employment
  • Once the permanent visa is obtained there is no renewal or re-application required
  • The new immigrant may live anywhere within the United States without restrictions
  • The EB-5 investment program does not require immigrant investors to manage their investment on a daily basis, but rather they are allowed to ‘actively engage’ in a business enterprise, meaning they can be limited partners and pursue other professional or personal ventures
  • Should the investor and his or her family elect to become U.S. citizens, the time spent as conditional permanent residents is credited towards the five year lawful permanent residency requirement for U.S. citizenship




Investor Criteria:


An immigrant investor must meet several requirements to qualify for a permanent visa (The Green Card). Some of the very basic, non comprehensive, requirements are:

  • Investment funds must be from a lawful source
  • The investment is required to make a positive impact on the economy
  • The investment has or will create ten new American jobs
  • The investment funds must be at risk
  • The investment amount is $1 million or $500,000 in high unemployment area or rural area (TEA)
  • The enterprise must be a new commercial enterprise
  • The investment cannot have a redemption agreement or guarantee of return on the investment. There are no requirements such as age, nationality, work experience or entrepreneur achievements
