The United States has been rightly called the “land of dreams” for immigrants and EB-5 is increasingly the best bet for your aspirations. The recent proposed changes in the H-1B regulations by the Trump regime have tilted the scale in the favor of EB-5 and have made EB-5 a crowd favorite as compared to other alternative immigration programs available.
The number of visas issued between the FY2005-2015 has witnessed an astronomical growth (from 349 to 9,764) and in 2014 for the first time, the EB-5 category hit its annual cap. The same trend continued in the filing of the EB-5 petitions, from 11,744 in 2014 the number rose to 17,691 applications in 2015. EB5 has been present for a long time but it has gained momentum in recent years with other avenues of immigrations getting extremely difficult to access.
