The EB-5 immigrant Investor Visa program was created to allow for foreign investments in the United States and to encourage economic growth. After December 8, 2017, the current requirements for the Regional Center will expire. We expect that future legislation will call for a higher investment amount and more stringent requirements. Now is the right time to invest” and turn it into the countdown clock.
Infinity Law firm specializes in investor visas, namely the E-1/E-2 nonimmigrant visas and the EB-5 immigrant visas. Our EB-5 clients come to us and ask for our expertise to help them navigate the murky waters of the EB-5 Program, especially regarding securities law compliance. Due to the immigration fraud that has surrounded the EB-5 Program, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) has tightened its oversight to the point that it has even provided U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) adjudicators with basic securities law training.
At Infinity Law Firm, we take a 100% ethical approach to make sure that our client complies with not only immigration law, but also securities law. With over 20 years of combined experience in immigration law, our attorneys are young, dynamic, and ingenious. Both first-generation U.S. citizens, our attorneys have compassion for our foreign national clients who come to the U.S. for a myriad of reasons, be it to escape their native country’s oppression or poverty or to give their children better opportunities in the U.S.
Commonly referred to as “the million-dollar green card,” the EB-5 immigrant visa was made available for U.S. employment creation by the Immigration Act of 1990.
The goal of the EB-5 program is to assist foreign nationals who seek to enter the U.S. to engage in a “commercial enterprise” that will benefit the U.S. economy and create at least 10 full-time jobs. Presently, the foreign national is required to invest $1,000,000.00 in an appropriate business venture or $500,000 if the investment is made in a venture in a Targeted Employment Area (TEA). In return, the foreign national will be eligible to apply for a conditional (2-year) green card. After approximately two years, the foreign national can apply for permanent (10-year) green card.
At Infinity Law Firm, we understand that our clients’ lives are in our hands. We do not take this responsibility lightly. We go above and beyond for every, single client.
We assess whether our client wishes to open his/her own business or wishes to invest in a Regional Center. We request a copy of the business plan which will review and provide guidance. We conduct a thorough investigation of the funding source(s). Since some of our clients do not have the investment available in cash; for these clients, we explain all of the various types of investments. We also ensure that the funds are truly “at risk.”
At Infinity Law Firm, we offer individualized support for our clients through every phase of the EB-5 program. We provide guidance on what industry to select. We assist with our “one-stop-shopping” approach pairs our clients with our network of licensed professionals who can assist with filing articles of incorporation, preparing the business plan, selecting the best location (real estate), opening the investment accounts (banking representative), hiring workers (staffing agency), drafting employment contracts (employment attorney), running payroll and accounting (Chartered Public Accountant).
