Citizenship by Investment and E-2: A U.S. Immigration Strategy for High Net Worth Individuals
The EB-5 program experienced the most significant changes in at least 10 years with new regulations taking effect on November 21, 2019. With increased investment amounts, restricted targeted employment areas and lengthy quota backlogs, the EB-5 visa has lost its luster for many foreign nationals. A few years ago, Ron Klasko developed a strategy for high net worth individuals from countries without bilateral investment treaties with the U.S. to achieve their U.S. immigration goals by obtaining citizenship by investment (CBI) in a treaty country followed by a treaty investor visa (E-2) application. That is the subject of this webinar.
In partnership with the Investment Migration Council, Ron Klasko, joined by Jessica DeNisi and Oliver Yang, talks about when CBI/E-2 is the best option, how to qualify for the E-2 visa, how to use the E-2 visa in conjunction with EB-5, and how to decide between the citizenship-by-investment countries.
