How it Works

Since the colonization of America began in 1492, this country has welcomed immigrants who helped to build the American Dream. Now, with millions of Americans out of work, the opportunity for immigrants to again help this country has arrived, creating a win-win for residents and immigrants alike. The EB-5 program enables foreign immigrants to save existing jobs or provide new jobs. In exchange, immigrant investors are able to permanently work and reside in the United States.
