New York, NY – The Law Offices of Evangeline M. Chan, a full-service immigration law practice handling a wide variety of immigration matters for corporate and individual clients, has new liaisons with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) designated EB-5 Regional Centers as well as with EB-5 direct investment opportunities.
The USCIS Immigrant Investor Program (also known as the “EB-5 Program”) was established by Congress in 1990 to stimulate the U.S. economy through job creation and capital investment by foreign investors. Under the EB-5 Program, foreign investors can obtain lawful permanent residency (also known as a “green card”) through either a direct investment or investment through a USCIS designated Regional Center. In either instance, the requirements are essentially the same—investment of $1 million in a new commercial enterprise that creates or preserves at least 10 full-time jobs for qualifying U.S. workers within 2 years of the grant of conditional permanent residency. If the new commercial enterprise is located in a Targeted Employment Area (high unemployment or rural area), the qualifying investment is $500,000.
Constantly striving to bring the best in services to its clients, the Law Offices of Evangeline M. Chan has developed relationships and liaisons with active USCIS designated Regional Centers and qualifying businesses to meet the needs of foreign investors looking to participate in the EB-5 Program. Current investment opportunities include new real estate developments in New York City and franchise opportunities across the country.
