We understand the best avenues for investors to pursue the goal of living and working in the U.S.

Entrepreneurs & Investors

Chin & Curtis has broad experience in advising investors on immigrant and nonimmigrant options for living and working in the United States. For those who qualify, this can be a good avenue to pursue the goal of living and investing in the U.S.

EB-5

For investors wishing to live in the United States permanently, we provide advice and representation with respect to the EB-5 program. The EB-5 program provides a path to permanent residence for individuals investing $900,000 in a project located in a “targeted employment area” (TEA)(a rural area or an area of relatively high unemployment), or $1.9 million in a project not located in a TEA. Many individuals pursuing an EB-5 green card make investments in projects sponsored by regional centers. We assist in identifying and vetting EB-5 regional centers; in documenting the source and path of funds for an EB-5 investment; and in completing the I-526 and I-829 petitions that lead to permanent residence in the United States. If you are making an investment in your own EB-5 endeavor, we will help you with documenting all aspects of the business and necessary job creation.

EB-2

We also provide advice and representation with respect to the E-2 nonimmigrant visa, which can be a viable solution for investors seeking to manage their own investments in the United States. While not a path to permanent residence, the E-2 visa can be a useful solution for investors who wish to come to the United States quickly and/or do not meet the inflexible requirements of the EB-5 program. We will help you document your investment and navigate the substantiality and marginality tests, making sure that your application will satisfy the scrutiny of consular or USCIS officers.
