Attorney Ahmad Yakzan has represented several individuals in their quest to gain their permanent residence through the EB-5 employment creation program, which was created by the US Congress in 1990 to stimulate the country’s economy. This investment could be a stand-alone direct investment or through a regional center approved by the United States Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS).
The amount of investment varies depending on the location. An investment of $500,000 is required for an investment in a Targeted Employment Area (TEA), an urban place that has at least 150% of the national unemployment rate or a rural area outside any city with a population of 20,000. Meanwhile, an investment of $1,000,000 is required for investment outside of these areas.
