Leading EB5 Regional Centers and Immigration law firms from the US will be participating in the show. EB5 Visa Program is an investment based visa programme offered by the US government that offers a path to permanent residency of the US to foreign investors who make significant investments in the US that create atleast 10 permanent jobs in the US economy. This programme was launched in 1990 that enables foreign investors to obtain a US Green Card by investing in a business or real estate project that creates jobs for the US economy and leads to growth in US.

The New EB5 Investment visa requires a minimum investment of USD 800,000 in an EB5 approved real estate project, fund or business in United States.

UAE investors and wealthy expats are counting on the country’s economic expansion and escalating wealth to opt for secondary residency-and-citizenship by investment options worldwide. The recent influx of UHNWIs from Ukraine, Russia and neighbouring countries has contributed to a rise in investor visa applications and demand for second passport. EB5 companies have witnessed a 40 per cent rise in USA EB5 applications from UAE from in the last 2-3 years.
