Introduced by the US Congress in 1990, the EB-5 Visa Programme grants permanent residency to immigrant investors and their families, via investments in Government-approved Regional Centers. An EB-5 applicant and his/her family can apply for a full, permanent green card after two years of obtaining an initial conditional green card.

After holding a green card for five years, an EB-5 applicant may apply for US citizenship. This popular programme offers an attractive opportunity for investors seeking to establish residency in the United States.

US green card holders can enjoy visa-free and visa-on-arrival travel across 38 countries including Canada, Mexico, Costa Rica, and Peru.
