The EB-5 Immigrant Investor Programme rewards foreign investors and their immediate families (children up to age of 21) with a path to U.S. citizenship in exchange for a $500,000 (R6, 750,000) job creating investment into a new American business or real estate project. Administrative fees of $50,000 (R675, 000) and legal fees also apply. Since 2013, around 100 South Africans, including their families, have taken advantage of the programme and enjoy the many benefits of American residency.
South Africa faces a slowing economy, social problems thanks to high unemployment levels and uncertainty in the education sector following the unrest caused by the #FeesMustFall campaign. The EB-5 programme affords high net worth and ultra-high net worth- investors the opportunity to:
- immigrate permanently to the U.S. to retire or set up a business;
- enable their children to study at top American universities at local rates;
- secure a second passport and the assurances that come with that.
Whatever your reason for getting an American green card, LCR Capital Partners has the expertise and know-how to help you manage each step of the application process and to help you make the right investment choices that will provide you with the required job creation requirements, while protecting your capital.
