Chinese investors fund I-95 link in exchange for a visa

One excellent way to obtain a visa to live in the United States is by purchasing a business.  There are different type of visas but for this article, let us dissect the EB-5 visa.

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services website described the EB-5 as a visa to stimulate the U.S. economy through job creation and capital investment by foreign investors.  The minimum qualifying investment either within a high-unemployment area or rural area in the United States is $500,000.


Chinese investors saw that opportunity by contributing funds to the Pennsylvania Turnpike and I-95 connection in the state of Pennsylvania.  Over 100 overseas investors have applied for this project.  The Turnpike Commission is counting on 400 wealthy foreign investors, mostly from China, to provide $200 million for the $420 million project.

If you have that amount of cash laying around and you are thinking about staying or relocating to America, this is the best route to take.  The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services shows different ways on how to obtain a visa with other qualifications.  Make sure to do your research and figure out what option works best for you.
