EASY US RESIDENCY: The advantages of establishing residency in the United States are compelling. Whether your considerations are lifestyle, business or investment, the USA offers a myriad of benefits and opportunities. The EB5 Investment Program is highly sought after among foreign investors, to the point that the number of investment visas issued per year has been capped at 10,000.
HIGH-POTENTIAL INVESTMENT: Investment visa applicants have the option to invest in a range of high potential assets, however most South African investors are opting to invest in government approved Regional Center projects – typically hotels, commercial or residential developments. EB-5 investments do carry the expected level of risk, however they also serve as an effective hedge against Rand devaluation, being dollar denominated.
A SOLID PLAN B: It’s called the American Dream for a reason – US citizens enjoy one of the highest living standards in the world. Culturally diverse, economically dominant and geo-politically secure, the United States is an excellent place for building a new life. The country celebrates the innovators and entrepreneurially minded; opportunities for building prosperity abound.
WORLD CLASS EDUCATION: The United States’ top tier universities and colleges are rated amongst the top tertiary institutions in the world, and the network students build during their studies can form a key asset for building a career or entrepreneurial business. Gaining US residency by investment strengthens your child’s odds of being accepted into the US’s most exclusive learning institutions, and also ensures that fee structures are in line with that of US nationals. (Fee structures for foreign students can be significantly higher.)
OPENING DOORS OF OPPORTUNITY: An EB-5 investment residency can dramatically increase career mobility and advancement. In addition to easing access to top-flight tertiary institutions, EB-5 residency status can also aid your child in gaining access to career opportunities upon graduation, without the need to go through the cumbersome application process for either the H-1B or L1 visa classes.
LEAVE A GLOBAL LEGACY: US residency is the ultimate inheritance. The EB-5 programme enables you to give your children the opportunity to flourish in a prosperous first world country.

What’s more, taking this route, you can obtain second citizenship in Grenada and obtain the ability to relocate to the USA with your family in only 6 months – all in.
