How to Evaluate EB-5 Visa Investments Offered by Regional Centers

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.

You Should Make a Decision on EB-5 Today

According to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the EB-5 program has been a boon for the US economy especially areas suffering from chronic employment. It has led to investments over $8.7 billion since 2012 and helped create more than 35,000 jobs.

But with Trump era beginning and Congress hardening its stance towards immigration, it comes as no surprise that major changes are being planned in the EB-5 visa regime.

Considering the 43 million immigrants already in the USA, the 10,000 EB5 visas a year are a drop in the bucket; but considering that other developed countries like Canada and Australia are offering the same investor visa for $1 to $5 million US dollars has brought major heartburn amongst the US lawmakers.

It thus becomes essential for potential immigrants to speed up their education and decision process regarding this unique opportunity to become lawful citizens of the greatest country on earth in as little as 5 years.

Trump, H-1B and Why EB-5 is the better bet?

Posted by David Gunderson on Mar 1, 2017 3:46:11 AM

People around the world who were dreaming of a life in the United States were as anxious and worried as the Americans when the US Presidential result tilted in favor of Donald Trump. His entire campaign was tailored towards restricting immigration and creating “real jobs for Americans”. The travel ban proved that it was not political rhetoric and Trump administration was bent on upending the current immigration system. But what created mayhem was the introduction of legislation in the US House of Representatives which called for among other things more than doubling of minimum salary for H-1B holders to $130,000.
