Dear All,

Kindly suggest is the possible ways to get green card based on our existing business which is outside USA.

We are ready to expand in USA but are unaware about the immigration rules.

I wish to inform you that you may seek Green Card through investment under EB5 visa. You may have to invest $1,000,000, or at least $500,000 in a targeted employment area (high unemployment or rural area). After this USCIS may grant conditional permanent residence to the you. Further 10 full time job of qualified US citizens may also be required to be created in USA.

Or you can set up a new US office and possibly use the L visa process and then apply from there to a green card,
Once the L visa is granted the green card usually easily follows

The investor visa options mentioned above still exist right?

Is Trump trying to stop those?

As per the U.S. immigration law certain foreign nationals who are employment-based immigrants can become lawful permanent residents. Foreign nationals by investing and those who are in the process of investing $1 million (or $500,000 in targeted employment areas) in a new commercial enterprise that will benefit the U.S. economy and create at least 10 full-time positions for qualifying employees can also obtain a green card.
