EB-5 Regional Centers
While many people who take part in the Immigrant Investor Program want the excitement and challenge that comes with starting their own business, others are looking to take a less active role and invest in an already-existing enterprise. For these individuals, investing in an approved Regional Center is an extremely popular option.
Approved Regional Centers are organizations that have been approved by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to help create jobs and promote economic growth in a given area of the United States. If you are interested in immigrating to the United States through the Immigrant Investor Program, the EB-5 visa attorneys at AmLaw Group can help you determine if investing in a Regional Center is a good move considering your financial situation and future business goals.
Benefits of Investing in a Regional Center
Investing in an approved Regional Center comes with a number of distinct advantages when compared to investing in a brand new business or attempting to revive a struggling business. Specifically:
- Because Regional Centers are often located in designated Targeted Employment Areas, investors are often able to qualify for an EB-5 visa with just a $500,000 investment, as opposed to the normal $1 million investment.
- Investors often have to play a less active role in the day-to-day business dealings of a company.
- When meeting job creation quotas, those who invest in an approved regional center can benefit from indirect job creation, rather than only direct job creation.
For many hopeful immigrants, investing in an approved Regional Center is the fastest and easiest way to secure residency in the United States.
