For foreign investors who are interested in immigrating and investing in franchising or opening their own business, Direct EB-5 is a good visa option available to them. This visa permits qualified investors who meet a certain minimum threshold investment level to immigrate to the United States.
Direct EB-5 investment businesses have always been a quick approach to get EB-5 visa. Generally, it takes less time to get an I-526 approved for Direct EB-5 investment businesses in comparison to Regional Centers.
Regional Centers usually lock-in EB-5 visa investors for 5-9 years, and charge a fee to exit the investment. Whereas those who invest in their own Direct EB-5 investment businesses usually exit whenever they want.
