If you are a foreign national, the United States presents many investment opportunities for you within the “land of opportunity.” The U.S. immigration laws make it possible for you to come and start your own enterprise while living permanently in the United States. To achieve the American dream of growing a successful company in this country, you need to speak with a Maryland immigration lawyer as soon as possible.
The investor’s visa, or EB5 visa, opens up the door to foreign nationals who have at least $1 million dollars to invest in a commercial enterprise, or who have at least $500,000 dollars to invest in a business in a rural area or an area of high unemployment. There are many requirements that must be met for an investor’s visa to put you on the path to a green card, so call a Maryland immigration lawyer at Miranda & Weisman for help throughout the immigration process.
A Maryland immigration lawyer can review your circumstances to determine if you are eligible for an investor’s visa. In order to be able to come to the United States based on an EB5 investor visa:
EB-5 investors will first obtain lawful permanent resident (LPR) status that is valid for two years. At the end of this period of time, the foreign national investor will be required to file a separate application with United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) in order to remove the conditional status and become a regular long-term permanent resident with a green card.
If you are making a significant investment in a company within the United States, it is natural to want to get started right away and focus on making that business as much of a success as possible. You need to be watching over your investment, rather than worrying about your immigration law issues.
A Maryland immigration lawyer can take over dealing with USCIS for you and can assist with providing all paperwork and documentation so the immigration petition will have the best chance of being approved. Our attorneys are here to help make people’s dreams come true and hopefully with our help you can move permanently to the U.S. and launch a business that brings you great success for decades to come.
