The EB-5 Visa: Considerations for the Indian Investor

Overview

For many Indian Nationals, the EB-5 visa program is the fastest route to a “green card”. In return for an investment of either USD 500,000.00 or USD 1,000,000* an Indian investor, their spouse and children under the age of twenty-one can receive permanent residency in the United States.

Obtaining the right impartial advice is critical. A U.S. lawyer experienced with assisting Indian EB-5 visa applicants can seamlessly guide investors through these issues.

Direct vs. Regional Centre EB-5:

Every EB-5 Investor has to make a decision whether to apply for their EB-5 based “green card” through the Regional Centre or Direct program. In our experience, many Indian investors confuse the concepts of risk and control when making this decision. While the Direct EB-5 Program allows an investor to invest in their own business a direct investment can be higher risk than an EB-5 Regional Centre based investment.

Direct EB-5: Investing in your own Business

A direct EB-5 application allows an Indian investor to make an investment in his or her own business. With approximately 90% of all EB-5 investments being made through the Regional Centre program, very few law firms have any experience with Indian Direct EB-5 applications. Davies & Associates assists investors from across India start and invest in private businesses in the United States. Our firm has assisted Indian clients from every region of India open, expand and acquire EB5-qualifying businesses in multiple and varied industries across the United States.

Regional Centre EB-5: Investing through a Regional Centre

Making an EB-5 qualified investment through a Regional Centre can be a simple and effective route to U.S Permanent Residency (a “Green Card”). Out of over 1,000 Regional Center Registrations there is a very small cadre of Regional Centers a solid history of success. Many of our clients ask us to introduce them to the very small list of Regional Centers which have:

Repaid all the investors in multiple projects;

Had thousands of I-526 approvals with no project-related denials;

More than a decade of “trouble free” history;

I-829 approvals extending across multiple projects with no project-related denials.

With over 600 Regional Centre registrations it can be difficult to select a Regional Centre.
