Why you should be interested:

The EB-5 programme with LCR Capital affords high net worth individuals the opportunity to secure American green cards through a high quality investment programme.


Investing in the EB-5 programme is an excellent back-up plan when considering political and economic uncertainty in South Africa.

Investors can live, work and retire anywhere in the USA, and travel easily to other countries.


When you enter the USA through the EB-5 programme you will have a green card and a direct path to permanent citizenship.


Through the EB-5 immigrant investor visa program, you and your family will be authorised to work in the USA.


The EB-5 visa offers a great immigration solution for those who have the financial resources to qualify. 


Investors’ children can study at top American universities at reduced local rates, and may qualify for state and federal financial aid.

The minimum investment amount is $500 000. This capital is then used to invest in a qualifying project that creates a minimum of 10 full-time American jobs. A single $500,000 investment will allow your entire family, including all unmarried children under the age of 21, to secure a U.S. green card.

How the EB-5 Programme works:

The $500 000 investment amount has remained unchanged since the programme began in 1990. Based on recent legislative proposals in Congress, the industry expects this amount to increase to ~$1 million on or before September 30th, 2017.

“There are a number of high net worth individuals in South Africa who have been mulling over this option, and keeping it as their ‘back-up plan’ should things start to go wrong,” says Marc Sharpe, Partner & Managing Director at LCR Capital. “Many of our South African investors are choosing to act now, before the required investment amount changes.”
