Tampa Citizenship by Investment Attorney
Citizenship by Investment programs are a pathway for foreign investors to obtain permanent residency and citizenship in the United States.
U.S. immigration law provides the EB-5 Investor Program to promote our nation’s economic growth and job creation by attracting foreign investments.
Immigration law also includes the E-2 non-immigrant visa category that allows foreign nationals from treaty countries to enter and work in the U.S. based on a substantial investment in a valid enterprise. The primary purpose of this visa is to promote trade and investment between the U.S. and treaty countries.
At American Dream® Law Office, PLLC, we take pride in helping foreign nationals undergo the processes involved in these programs. We can help you select appropriate investment projects that comply with the program's requirements, conduct due diligence on the commercial enterprise, and provide legal advice to protect your interests.
Furthermore, our attorney can help you understand your rights and obligations under the program, including travel, work, or residence restrictions. We also assist with any issues or challenges that may arise during the application process, making the process smoother and more straightforward.
The EB-5 Investor Program under U.S. Immigration Law
To be eligible for the program known as the EB-5 program, applicants must meet specific requirements. They must invest a minimum amount of capital in a new commercial enterprise within the US.
The minimum investment amount varies depending on whether the investment is made in a targeted employment area (TEA) or a non-TEA. The minimum investment is $1.8 million for non-TEA investments and $900,000 for TEA investments. Targeted employment areas are those with high unemployment or in rural areas.
The E-2 Visa
Our firm provides specific information about the following citizenship-by-investment programs:
These programs allow you to apply for an E-2 visa. To be eligible for an E-2 visa, applicants must be citizens of a country that has a treaty of commerce and navigation with the United States. The specific countries in this program can be found on the Department of State's website or by consulting our immigration lawyer.
To qualify for an E-2 visa, applicants must make a qualifying donation or investment, e.g., a business or real estate investment. The law does not generally establish a minimum investment amount, but it must be significant enough to ensure the success and viability of the enterprise. Investments can be in capital, funds, equipment, inventory, or other tangible assets.
The E-2 visa allows you to work in your chosen investment vehicle in this country legally. You can stay here for two years with unlimited extensions, bring your spouse and dependents under 21, and this visa allows you to freely travel in and out of the U.S.
