The EB-5 program is an excellent opportunity for expat families residing in the United Arab Emirates and neighboring countries to obtain permanent residency in the United States through investment in government pre-approved real estate projects.

The program has been around since the 1990s and has provided many investors with a path to obtain permanent residency in the United States. Here’s what you need to know about the program, including an upcoming seminar hosted by The American Legal Center, leading industry experts in regards to the EB-5 program.

What is the EB-5 program?

The EB-5 program is a U.S. federal program that allows foreign investors to obtain permanent residency in the United States. To participate in the program, investors must invest a minimum of $800,000 in a job-creating project in the United States. The investment must create at least ten full-time jobs for U.S. workers. Once the investment is made, the investor is eligible to apply for a Green Card.

“This program has been around for over three decades, and it has provided many families with the opportunity to live and work in the United States,” says Shai Zamanian, Legal Director of The American Legal Center. “We have assisted hundreds of families pursue their immigration goals to the U.S. through the EB-5 program and will continue serving as active guides in this industry.”

What are the benefits of the EB-5 program?

The EB-5 program provides several benefits to foreign investors. The most significant benefit is the opportunity to obtain permanent residency in the United States. This provides investors with access to a range of benefits, including the ability to work, study, and live in the United States without any restrictions. In addition, permanent residents are eligible to apply for U.S. citizenship after five years and obtain their passports if they have lived at least 2.5 years in the country during this time.

Investors can include their spouse and children under the age of 21 in their application thereby allowing their dependent family members to obtain their own Green Cards. With a Green Card in hand, children can take advantage of vast educational opportunities and access lucrative professional opportunities upon graduation. In addition to higher chances of acceptance to U.S. universities and institutions as a Green Card holder, students can benefit from access to U.S. grants, scholarships, fellowships, internships, and other professional prospects.
