The South China Morning Post reported last week that nearly 57,000 applicants for Canada’s immigrant
Those applicants wishing to fulfill their dream of relocating from Asia via investment visa should consider an investment in an EB-5 Regional Center Franchise project. The Florida Restaurant Franchise Group projects enjoy a terrific track record of placing our investors with permanent U.S. residency via one of our proven restaurant franchise projects.
The EB-5 visa combined with a successful medium-sized investment has proven to be the fastest route to U.S. permanent residency. Investor positions are offered in a variety of proven U.S. restaurant franchises at $500,000 with each investment producing 17.5 jobs per investor –75% more jobs than required for green card approval.
In addition to their popularity among investors FRFG’s investment offerings have been very appealing to EB-5 agents, consultants, and immigration attorneys because they are a relatively small in volume ($500,000 per investor – $5 to $10 million per phase), a good mix of developer cash and EB-5 funds, and because there is a history of approvals with the Regional Center on restaurant projects.
Canada’s immigrant investor program had been extremely popular amongst Asian investors because it did not require an investment in a business project but rather an interest-free loan to the Canadian government. Permanent residency was triggered immediately upon investment since there was no business or employment success metrics to satisfy. Unfortunately, in the end since the money went into government coffers not business projects the program brought little in the way of new business or new jobs to Canada.
“The Canadian shutdown has left a gigantic pool of Asian immigrant-investors with nowhere to place their investments and nowhere to go.”
Joe Sloboda, President, FRFG
As an industry EB-5 is adopting a sense of urgency as it prepares for a huge wave of new Asian EB-5 investment as former Canadian applicants try to shift to the EB-5 program. Unfortunately the shift may be a bumpy one since China is already inching closer and closer to its quota limitation. Petitioners can at the least expect extreme competition for an EB-5 visa since there are but 10,000 available EB-5 visas each year and over 65,000 applicants cut loose by Canada.
FRFG’s EB-5 offerings are presented under the Palm Beach Regional Center. The Palm Beach Regional Center has an outstanding reputation for presenting quality EB-5 projects. It is one of the few Regional Centers in the United States that boasts a 100% success rate on all previous I-526 petitions. The Palm Beach Regional Center operates in nine Florida Counties including Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach.
DON’T DELAY. Those interested in rolling their investments over from the Canadian program to the EB-5 program should contact us immediately. Every offering FRFG has ever made has sold out under normal conditions. It is expected that the combination of the Canadian program’s demise and Chinese quota retrogression will cause sellouts to occur at even higher rates.
