The U.S. immigrant investor program is one of the most flexible in the world. The U.S. has no requirements as to age, business training, experience, or language skills. Permanent residents need not be continuously and physically present in the United States, and you can decide to maintain business and professional relations in their country of origin.
The U.S. EB-5 program also allows investors a great deal of freedom. The program does not require immigrant investors to manage their investment on a daily basis, but rather, to ‘actively engage’ in a business enterprise, meaning they can be limited partners and pursue other professional or personal ventures.
Should the investor and his or her family elect to become U.S. citizens, the time spent as conditional permanent residents is credited towards the five year lawful permanent residency requirement for U.S. citizenship. As a permanent resident, the investor and family are free to return to their homeland for visits or business purposes, as long as a residence is maintained in the U.S.
