HOW TO IMMIGRATE TO USA

1,341 views

Published on

Green Card Capital works with HNWIs and families to achieve their dreams of US immigration utilizing EB5 and E2 programs.
The EB-5 visa for Immigrant Investors is a United States visa created by the Immigration Act of 1990. This visa provides a method of obtaining a green card for foreign nationals who invest money in the United States.
To obtain the visa, individuals must invest $1,000,000 (or at least $500,000 in a "Targeted Employment Area" - high unemployment or rural area), creating or preserving at least 10 jobs for U.S. workers excluding the investor and their immediate family. Under the EB5 Program investments can be made directly in a job-generating commercial enterprise (new, or existing - "Troubled Business"), or into a "Regional Center" - a 3rd party-managed investment vehicle (private or public), which assumes the responsibility of creating the requisite jobs.

  20. 20. Copyright © 2014 Green Card Capital LLC. www.greencardcapital.com Green Card Capital in the Media “ Abbas Hashmi, who is an investment banker and involved in the EB-5 program, reveals that it has contributed to growth in many communities across the country, so the Senate’s decision to continue the EB-5 is not surprising. Hashmi shares that the changes to the program will make it more attractive to communities because it will be tied to the consumer price index (CPI) starting in 2015. He explains that the goal of this investment program is to help local economies grow in the United States by boosting job creation…” Facebook     (more than 80,000 likes) “Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) recently indicted Illinois- based Anshoo Sethi for misleading about 250 Chinese investors by using the promise of EB-5 visas to sell $145 million in securities to finance a hotel-cum-conference center that had not yet received the necessary project clearances.This makes the task of legitimate immigration consultants like Abbas Hashmi, and his firm, Long Island- based Green Card Capital, that much tougher. "Black Box investments with the promise of high returns where little is known about the people or the project where the money is going, is something we steer our clients away from." The firm's website also has a section on EB-5 fraud listing the various scams to educate potential EB-5 applicants.“ “Hashmi “truly understands all the different markets”. The fact that he understands them all comes in handy, because Hashmi works with “high net worth individuals, family offices and groups of people who are interested in relocating to the U.S. and other parts of the world, using investment as a tool. Follow  us  on  Twi0er     (more than 80,000 followers) “I believe when you want expand internationally you need to have true global partners or local alliances who understand the market and are accustomed to compliance, market space and customer expectations,” - Abbas Hashmi speaking to The Washington Times
