UNITED STATES of AMERICA EB-5 INVESTOR
The U.S. residence by investment program was first introduced in 1990. The US EB-5 Investor visa enables entrepreneurs to start a business by investing 1m USD. In 1992 the EB5 program was complemented by a passive option using entities named Regional Centers to invest on the behalf of the investor in projects in Target Employment Area (TEA). Investors receive a conditional U.S. Green Card. After 2 years of conditional residence, the performance of the investment will be assessed and, if positive, the condition would be removed. U.S. citizenship can be obtained after 3 years of living in America. The American passport is one of the best travel documents, with visa-free travel to the European Union for 90 days in a period of 180 days.
