The termination of the Canadian program has left wealthy individuals from China and other countries scrambling for investment based immigration opportunities. This has opened the doors to tremendous opportunities for the EB-5 Investment Program in the United States. The EB-5 Investment Program requires a minimum of $500,000 investment in exchange for permanent residency. With no limitations as to industry or type of project that can utilize the program, EB-5 Investment Program provides a source of “cheap” capital for entrepreneurs.
Traditionally, the EB-5 Investment Program has been utilized by the real estate developers. However, the flexibility and scope of the program makes the program an invaluable source of capital for all industries from biotech, green energy to education. Furthermore, recent changes to the program has made the EB-5 Investment Program far more attractive and easier to utilize. With traditional capital markets still at a premium, foreign investment is an attractive option for all entrepreneurs.
