Immigrate to the US With an Investor Visa

The United States has a visa classification for investors since 1990, which allows foreigners to open businesses in the country. The strategy attracts foreign capital and new employment opportunities for nationals and legal immigrants.

Investors are required to open a commercial enterprise, which means a sole proprietorship, a partnership, a holding company, a joint venture, a corporation or a business trust.

The general capital requirement for an investors visa is $1 million. However, if the new company will be opened within a rural area or a targeted area, the amount drops to $500,000. With this strategy, the US makes sure to encourage investments in areas with a high unemployment rate.

Open a legitimate trading
company, following the legal requirements in the US
The required investment
is $500,000 to $ 1 million, depending on the chosen location
You must prove you can create
and maintain a minimum of 10 full-time jobs for American workers, within the first 2 years of activity
