EB-5 Visa Regional Centre Program Is Paused Awaiting Re-Authorisation

Updated: Oct 26, 2021

Meanwhile, don't get caught out unprepared and unable to file your application at $500k, as happened to many applicants in the June window.

EB-5 Visa Regional Centre Program Is Paused Awaiting Re-Authorisation

To ensure your application is ready, should a $500k window open for a short period, as it did from June 23 to June 30, your lawyer (immigration consultant) can begin preparing your application in anticipation of re-authorisation.

If the program is not re-authorised in the improbable event, your lawyer will switch your EB-5 application effort to Direct EB-5. Direct EB-5 has a higher denial rate and overall is less attractive than the Regional Centre EB-5 program. The relative popularity is 10%:90%. For those whose applications are successful, the green card immigration outcome is the same.

The EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program enables you and your family to qualify for a U.S. Green Card without having to set up and manage a business. By investing $500,000 through a 'Regional Center' into a qualifying investment, you have the security of permanent U.S. Residency (U.S. Green Card) without repeated visa applications.

As U.S. Green Card holders, investors and their dependents have the right to live, work and study anywhere in the United States. All applicants (including children) have full access to the U.S. educational system as U.S. residents. After five years of entering the U.S., it is possible to apply for U.S. Citizenship.

Residency Invest assists investors and their families through the entire application process to ensure you meet the requirements for EB- 5 visa. From helping identify a qualifying EB-5 project to assisting with the document preparation and meeting all the families' relocation needs. Although most investors tend to apply through the Regional Center EB-5 programme, we can still assist investors who wish to invest directly into their own

Business, either through EB-5 visa or through the E-2 Visa route. EB-5 gives your family the security of Permanent U.S. Residency without repeated Visa applications
