The US Immigrant Investor Program (EB-5)
The US EB-5 program is an immigrant investor program that allows foreign investors to obtain U.S. permanent residency, and eventually US citizenship, for their families. Administered by the United States Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS), the program was established in 1990 and is now one of the most popular options for foreign nationals that want to live and work in the US. The reason for its popularity is because it is now one of the fastest ways to get US permanent residency, and there are no requirements for the foreign national to be sponsored by a company or relative. The investment amount is also significantly less compared to immigrant investor programs of other developed countries.
