US Residency (Green Card)
The USA offers the “EB-5 Investor Visa” under a policy initiated by the US Congress in 1990 to attract foreign investment, boost the national economy and create local jobs. The EB-5 Investor Visa gives permanent residency in US to those investing into projects approved by the USCIS. The permanent residency or “Green Card” issued under EB-5 grants access to the U.S. education system, the right to live, retire and work in the USA for the investor, their spouse and any dependent children.
