Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

1. What is “Residency by Investment”?

Residency by Investment (also known is some parts as Golden Visa) is a process whereby individuals, along with their eligible family members, are able to acquire permanent resident status in a country in exchange for making a specified quantum of investment in eligible categories.

2. What is an EB- 5 Visa?

The United States EB-5 visa is an Immigrant Investor Visa Program. This is a popular method for eligible Immigrant Investors to become lawful permanent residents or to get the “green card” for the whole family. Thanks to EB-5 visa, husband/wife in law and all non-married children below 21 years old of the investors can get the “green card” and have a full right of a US permanent resident.

Before November 21, 2019, the minimum amount of investment was 500.000 US$, but now the investor has to invest at least 900.000 US$ to get an EB-5 visa. The duration for approval lasts for 24 months.

After that, all family members will enjoy a high standard of life including getting benefits from high-quality medical service, education, and other well-beings similar to a US citizen apart from election rights.The children can stay in school for free of tuition until age 18 and then can obtain higher education with a fee less than ⅓ compared to foreign students. After 5 years, the investors and his/her family can apply for US citizenship.

3. What is an E2 Visa?

Inspired in part by its capitalist system, a central purpose of the U.S.’ immigration system is to grant admission to foreign nationals who are anticipated to have a positive impact on the U.S. economy, society, and the job market. For foreign investors, this can mean very good news!

Specifically, for business people looking to invest in, direct, and develop a bona fide enterprise in the United States, the E-2 visa classification can very well open the doors.

4. What is permanent residency?

Permanent Residency is a visa status which allows the holder of a designated Permanent Resident Card to reside in a country & enjoy all the benefits of that status.

5. Can Permanent Residency lead to citizenship?

In most cases, permanent residency status can lead to citizenship by naturalization provided a permanent resident has complied with certain conditions (which can differ from country to country).

6. Does any “Residency by Investment” program require me to prove my educational qualifications, age, business experience, language proficiency and/or job offer?

Some jurisdictions may require you to be under a certain age, some might require proof of business/managerial experience, while some may require you to prove language proficiency.

However, most Residency by Investment Programs do not require you to prove any of the above. A mere investment is all it takes to get a Permanent Resident Card. Contact us to determine which region and country is best for you.
