Eb5 Direct

EB-5 is one of the best US immigration programs since there is no requirement with respect to age, language, professional skills, education, etc.

Direct Eb5 is an ideal business model for immigrants who would desire to open their own business & hold the commercial real estate.

Female Asylum Seekers; Battered & Helpless

A successful asylum seeker by law is someone who is unable or unwilling to return to her country for a well-founded fear of persecution, where the authorities or agents of authorities are unable or unwilling to protect her against such persecution. The government must be unable or unwilling to protect.

In this respect, a battered woman who has been subject to continuous abuse of a spouse may be eligible to seek asylum, especially when government encourages such abuse in order to systematically suppress women.

Example: The underlying cultural background in some third world countries, legitimizes & validates the character & acts of a male dominant husband, who indeed and by psychiatric text book definition suffers from Somatic Narcissistic Personality Disorder.  The husband batters his spouse psychologically, mentally, verbally & sexually, but the wife is mandated to submit through government established rules; here wife can apply for asylum, because government has failed to protect.  For further information contact an experienced immigration counsel.

Few Points on Eb5, Investment Immigrant Visa

Eb5 is an investment immigrant visa where an investor receives a green card for him & his spouse & his children under 21 years old. Each Eb5 investment program has a regional center where a project is approved with USCIS which allows investment of the funds. Transfer of Funds from certain countries such as Iran requires licensing besides sourcing. A general OFAC license is available where the funds are used to receive an Eb5 & to fund a project in a Regional Center.

The course of the money goes back to at least 15 years & mere statement of the funds does not prove the source.  Although this is not the case on the funds from other countries, funds from Iran must stay in an escrow company & must only be released upon approval of the applicant’s form I-528, the application to receive Eb5. To ensure the successful process & to apply for green card via investment contact a dedicated lawyer who is familiar with the conditions of your country of nationality.

More on Treaty Trader (E2) Visas

When a foreign businessman decides to operate a business in the US, if otherwise eligible, he could apply for an E2 visa.

In an E2 visa, because applicant is required to be the controlling supervisor/director or manager of the business operation, he may be required to have some relevant educational or operational background to ensure the success of the US business.

The amount of the capital, applicant must spend is unclear, the rule however, calls for “substantial amount of investment”. Substantial amount may be defined in relations to the type of business. For example, to purchase & run a small suburban sandwich store in Southern California, the “substantial amount” is different than purchasing & operating a down town New York city development project.

E2 Visas are complex & require close attentions to business details, contact an experienced lawyer to learn more.
