The U.S. Investor Program (EB-5 program) is the fastest way for wealthy individuals to obtain a Green Card for themselves, their spouse and unmarried children under the age of 21. The main requirement for this program is an investment of $500,000 US in an eligible business in the United States that will create 10 jobs.

  • Processing time of 16 to 20 months to obtain a U.S. Green Card for your family.
  • The investment is returned over a 4.5 year period :
    • The first 66% is returned to you after 2 ½ years.
    • The remaining 33% is returned to you 24 months later.
  • The investment money is kept in a secure escrow bank account until the government approves the investment project and the file of the candidate.
  • If the candidate is refused by the government, the investment is returned by the escrow bank.
  • Candidate only needs to prove he obtained the $500,000 US legally. This money can come from personal savings, a loan, a donation, an inheritance, etc.
