The Eb5 Green Card was created to promote investments in businesses in USA.
With illegal immigration a bigger issue these days, the country has tightened up the procedure to become a lawful permanent resident.
Basically this is the program that all immigrants must go through if they are looking to become USA residents through the fact that they are setting up a commercial enterprise that will create new jobs and business flow within an area.
When it comes to the Eb5 Visa Program there are several requirements that immigrants must meet before they are granted residence in the U.S. Most if not all of these requirements must be met before the immigrant’s petition to become a resident is accepted and processed.
480 Regional Centers have been approved as of April, 1st 2014.
