In their thorough and practical Green Card Via the Red Carpet: A Comprehensive Guide to your US Immigration Options under the EB-5 Regional Center Investor Visa Program, financial and relocation specialists Stephen Parnell and Andrew Bartlett share vital information sought by foreign nationals about the fastest and safest way to live, work, or retire in the United States. Page after page, readers will learn so much more than the pros and cons of immigration. Included in this guide are descriptions of the many visa options--there are nearly two dozen non-immigrant visas alone!--and how to define the many categories. The EB-5 Regional Center Investor Visa Program is discussed in detail, along with all requirements, investment minimums, and qualifications for partnerships and joint ventures. What is a regional center and how does it benefit immigrants? How does one invest safely in a new country, secure that no fraud or underhandedness is involved? And how do newcomers establish credit and banking connections? Everything an immigrant needs to know...and much more...is found in this book. If there is one message that rings louder than all the others it is this: If you or someone you know are considering immigration to the United States, contact an impartial and expert advisor.
