Default So is the eb-5 visa still the best golden visa for the USA?

Has any other visa or program become better due to all the legislative changes?

I wish to inform you that alternative for eb-5 visa depends upon circumstances of the applicant. L1A is another alternative to EB-5 visa which allows visa to US based upon a foreign company having branch in US or subsidiary, affiliate or parent company in the US.

For many years, the E-2 visa has probably been the most inconspicuous alternative to EB-5 among all options, and perhaps rightfully so. The reasons are twofold: First, an E-2 visa is not directly available to nationals from countries such as China, India, and Vietnam. A foreign national from one of those countries will need to obtain citizenship from an E-2 treaty country before applying. Second, an E-2 visa is a nonimmigrant visa which by itself does not provide a pathway to permanent residency. While it is possible to “convert” E-2 into EB-5 or EB-1C, the requirements do not run parallel to each other, unlike the L-1A/EB-1C option.
Furthermore, as an E-2 visa holder, it is possible to avoid taxation on worldwide income if you spend little time in the US.
