"That the United States could get a green card to buy a house how investment projects?" Not long ago the U.S. House to come to the fall exhibitions will be selling, because the word "investment by the green card" on the cover, by the strong interest many readers. However, industry experts believe that $ 500,000 investment for a green card, this thing though not impossible, but the risk is much difficult to implement.
$ 500,000 is only "first order"
"$ 500,000 was a green card!" In the exhibitions at the, a number of developers have told reporters that the rhetoric promised a U.S. Marriott hotel project another $ 37,500 or even profit payments. But this $ 500,000, only the first step to apply for emigration. Further advice to the agents, the reporter found, in addition to the specified deposit 50 million investment banks, there must be some new costs: $ 60,000 application fee, including immigration lawyers fees, investment companies operating management fee; 5 interest on investments during the year (since 5 years, only to get back $ 500,000 of principal, interest, naturally, should be considered as external expenses), as well as the cost of 10 jobs.
"According to the U.S. investment investment immigration law immigration program, in order to obtain EB-5 visa, the investor must invest at least $ 500,000 U.S., and directly or indirectly create 10 jobs. This is the established law, even if the president can not free to go against, so, to seek investment of $ 500,000 just to buy a house, you can get a green card, which is impossible. "Howells, CEO of Xiao-Ning Li told reporters, plus insurance and welfare, wages and salaries, each providing a U.S. employment opportunities, investors have to pay per year nearly 5 million in the cost of labor employment.
10 jobs is not a small risk
"Buy a house is by no means 100% get a green card!" EB-5 project manager, Lake Buena Vista Resort Kosmas, senior vice president, said to seriously, after a preliminary examination of immigration, investors only got the first two years temporary green card, immigration will be two years for investors to stringent tests, the test period, there are many uncertainties.
One of the risks in these two years, investors still have a stable, legitimate and lucrative source of income in order to prove to immigration has always been a good credit qualification; risk of the second, investors must remain invested in the project within two years of operation and employment conditions to ensure that investment in two years, immigration has managed to maintain obligations. In other words, if your investment in the United States appeared depreciation can not afford to hire 10 employees, failed to be implemented not only your money, you would like to wish into a permanent green card will come to nothing.
"Can apply for and apply to, and this is definitely the two concepts. U.S. green card application is determined by the immigration authorities, not real estate developers, manufacturers, or gold. Buy a house so that it can, and may want to use in exchange for a green card, too much variability. "Xiao-Ning Li told reporters that the economic situation is in a good environment, the creation of 10 jobs are not easy, not to mention now the U.S. economy was still difficult recovery, the unemployment rate is astonishingly high, can have a stable revenue more difficult to find investment projects.
Investment immigration to raise the threshold
"Financial crisis for countries to a substantial increase in the unemployment rate, which is the tightening of the recent multi-country skilled migrants have one of the main factors." Xiao-Ning Li told reporters.
It is understood that in this year, double the threshold of the Canadian Immigrant Investor, from 40 million Canadian dollars to 80 million Canadian dollars; Australia, the applicant raised the proportion of investment in our business, now requires that if a listed company, the applicant stake not less than 10%; if the company's annual turnover is 40 million Australian dollars (about 2.62 million) or more, the applicant's ownership percentage is not less than 30%. Worth the most recent elevation, it is the Chinese Government's ban provisions from 14 October 2010, the investment threshold of resettlement funds increased from 650 million Hong Kong dollars 10 million, and real estate investment in permissible investment assets, excluding temporary category.
"It tightened in several countries and regions, the threshold for investment immigration, I think it is a signal that money can invest time has passed, countries in the future would be willing to absorb the quality of talent they thought." Xiao-Ning Li analysis 2011, personal "retail" purchase of real estate wave of the U.S. and Europe will be weakened, agencies do have some groups may start to enter the overseas property market.
