Why is USA a popular investment location?

The United States of America, U.S. for short, is a country of 50 states covering most of North America. It is the world’s third-largest country in terms of size.

The U.S. is home to one of the most developed financial markets. And with a GDP of just over $20 trillion, the U.S. has the largest global consumer market.

Widely known as the ‘Land of Opportunity’, the U.S. provides excellent prospects for people striving to achieve personal and professional success.

About the USA Residency by Investment programme

The EB-3 is a third preference employment-based immigrant visa. It is one of the five employment-based green card options that enables foreign nationals to live and work in the U.S. as permanent residents.

The EB-3 Visa is designed for three categories of workers; skilled workers, professionals and unskilled or other workers. Those who fall into one of these three categories may be eligible for the EB-3 Visa.

Each of the three categories is defined by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) as follows:

  • Skilled workers: those with at least two years of experience in their chosen field of expertise.
  • Professionals: those with higher degrees that require a professional licence to work.
  • Unskilled or other workers: those who can perform jobs for which qualified workers are unavailable.

All costs, minus any fees, are fully refundable if the application is unsuccessful.

Key Benefit of Residency in the USA

The EB-3 Visa grants successful applicants a U.S. Green Card, which provides permanent residency for the holder.

By securing a Green Card, applicants live and work in the U.S. with minimal restrictions. They also benefit from being able to leave and enter the U.S. without needing a visa, as well as live in a different state.

Successful applicants can also bring eligible family members to the U.S., including a spouse and unmarried children under 21.

Requirements are not as strict as other types of residency visas. The EB-3 is an employment-based visa, meaning you only need a non-seasonal job offer to qualify. Once issued, Green Cards have a long validity period, lasting for 10 years.

Frequently asked questions

Those eligible to apply for the EB-3 Visa must meet specific requirements. These include:

  • You must be a citizen of a country that is eligible for the EB-3 visa program
  • You must have a job offer from a sponsoring employer in the United States
  • You must meet the minimum education and experience requirements for the job you are applying for
  • You must pass a medical examination and criminal background check

The principal applicant can include their spouse and any children under the age of 21 in their application. The cost for each additional applicant is $3,000.

While the EB-3 Visa does not grant U.S. citizenship directly, it does provide a route to securing citizenship through naturalisation. To apply for U.S. citizenship, applicants must fulfil the following requirements:

  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Held their EB-3 Visa for at least five years

While both types of visa grant permanent U.S. residency, there are some differences between the two. The main difference is that the EB-5 Visa is based on making a qualifying investment. The EB-3 Visa is dependent on the applicant having employment in the U.S.
