According to the National Venture Capital Association, over the last 20 years, immigrants have founded or helped to found, 25% of public U.S. companies that were backed by venture capital investors. Immigrants are huge contributors to the American economy by bringing foreign Investment into the United States or their individual specialized talent.
The United States has established many visa programs throughout the years to stimulate the U.S. economy through job creation. Some visa programs such as EB-5 allow foreign nationals to obtain lawful permanent resident status in the United States by making a capital investment, thereby creating jobs for the U.S. workers. EB-5 visas can require an investment of around 1 million dollars to 2 million dollars depending on the investment which can be a significant amount for many investors. However, the process for EB-5 visa fulfillment is significantly expedited compared with other employment and family-based green card categories.
On the other hand, there are programs such as E-2 visas derived from treaties of friendship or bilateral investment that the United States has entered into with over 70 countries around the world. The E-2 program allows a citizen of an E-2 treaty country to enter into the United States with one’s spouse and minor children (under age 21) for up to two years to develop, and direct the operations of an enterprise in with the individual has invested in or in which the investor is actively in the process of investing a substantial amount in. However, E-2 visas will not lead to permanent resident status, but the E-2 investor may be able to convert the E-2 status into EB-5 for a permanent residence status (With the condition of meeting the EB-5 Capital investment and job creation requirements).
