Foreign investment in the American economy is a unique and relatively expeditious way for qualified applicants to obtain visas or Legal Permanent Residence. Foreign entrepreneurs can launch their own business or invest in existing entities with the double benefit of both legal status and return on investment.
Our office advises clients and prepares petitions for the following investment-based visa categories:
E-2 Treaty Investor Visa
This particular visa applies to Foreign Nationals from countries that have and maintain Treaties of Commerce and Navigation with the United States.
Employment Based Fifth Preference (EB-5 Visa)
This visa allows qualified foreign nationals the opportunity to receive Legal Permanent Resident status after making a sizeable investment either in a new business, an existing business, or a Regional Center.
US BUSINESS OWNERS (USCIS REGIONAL CENTER DESIGNATION)
This special designation granted by United States Citizenship and Immigration Services allows US businesses to directly receive investments from foreign nationals who are interested in obtaining Legal Permanent Residence (Green Card).
