USA PASSPORT

The EB-5 program was not restarted in October 2021

As it became known in early October 2021, at the next meeting of the US Congress, the resolution was signed without extending the EB-5 program. Recall that for the past 6 years, the program has been extended many times for the short term. But this year, the next “extension” ended on June 30. Then the program is EB-5 on a technical pause.

It seems that President Joe Biden will not “revive” this program. Nevertheless, many experts insist that such a program is extremely important for the development of economies after a forced “epidemic pause,” as it is associated with construction (many jobs in the process and after) and, as a result, the creation of new infrastructure.

For high-net-worth investors, the United States Immigrant Investor Program EB-5 visa can be an excellent means of obtaining US conditional resident status, known as a green card, leading to a US passport.

After two years, an EB-5 visa allows individuals (often real estate investors) and their family members to obtain residency and become lawful permanent residents, and eventually citizens, of the United States.

Similar to a Citizenship via Investment Program, this EB-5 visa enables high-net-worth individuals with ease of travel, facilitating business immigration to crucial hubs for a variety of businesses and even opening up companies in the US. Investment in USA for citizenship requires no language, educational, or managerial experience; EB-5 visa applicants must meet minimum requirements and qualifications.

BENEFITS OF EB-5 PROGRAM

– Opportunity to live in any state
– 2 years after EB-5-visa conditional resident status is granted, investors and their families become eligible to apply for permanent residency

REQUIREMENTS FOR EB-5 PROGRAM

– Create full-time employment for at least 10 American workers
– Proof of the source of invested funds
– Applicants must undergo a medical check
– Applicants must undergo a security screening

OPTION 1.

United States second (2nd) citizenship provides mecca of business opportunity, giving anyone a chance to pursue any field. For example, one can operate as a consultant in the US after getting economic citizenship. Furthermore, one can create a business partnership with other citizens in the US. The downside is that business is highly competitive and many industries are pretty saturated, making it difficult for opening new companies or startups.

Career wise, on the other hand, there’s seemingly no limit to the possibilities of fields to enter, and the unemployment rate is relatively low at 4.4%.

Through the strength of the U.S. dollar compared to many other currencies, giving the USD a lot of purchasing power in developing countries, individuals with a United States passport can support their families back home.

The education system in the United States is quite strong, holding at least a top 25 ranking in just about every education category. Typically, children go to school from age 5 until 16-18 (depending on the state), with a high school graduation rate of about 80%. EB2 Visa is granted to those individuals with at least a master’s degree or a bachelor degree.

Higher education is about as good as it gets, with each of the 50 states having extensive college and university programs, where students can major in any subject imaginable. Many students obtain a United States passport to attend one of the many prestigious universities. The main downside to higher education in the United States is that it’s expensive, which can lead to a hefty buildup of student loan debt for many graduates.

Following the housing debacle and economic collapse in 2008, the United States has shown strong growth in the housing market since 2013. The average home sale in the U.S. is around $390,000, but that can vary wildly depending on one’s location.

Small rental units in the U.S. show strong yields of up to and even above 7% for studio apartments, but the yield diminishes the bigger the property gets. Real estate investors who come over with a United States passport may strongly consider renting out smaller units for the best ROI.

One downside to obtaining a United States passport is that getting healthcare services is very expensive, and it doesn’t look poised to improve in the short term. In 2014, the U.S. ranked 50th out of 55 countries in healthcare efficiency. Many people forego getting medical treatment because of the cost associated. Those with United States citizenship are eager to improve the healthcare system in the future.

That being said, patient-centered quality of care is near the top when compared on a global scale, but it’s clear that a long-term solution is needed to solve many of the other issues.
