FAQ

Yes, in the event the application is refused, the investment will be returned to you immediately.

Generally, programs allow the spouse and dependent children to be included in the application.

For the US EB-5 Program and Portugal Golden Visa program, anyone 18 years of age and over may apply. There is no requirement for management experience, education, or net worth. The US EB-5 Program, however, requires that the investor must prove that the investment amount has been lawfully gifted or acquired. Additionally, a child or spouse may apply without the accompanying parents or spouse if the other family members do not wish to do so. There are also no restrictions on your nationality. Canada business immigration programs, on the other hand, are stricter and require certain management experience and net worth as well as proof that all assets have been obtained legally.

For most Canada entrepreneur and self-employed programs, yes, because they usually require living in the province and running a business. However, there are certain programs in Canada that enable a passive investment such as the Quebec Investor Program. For the US EB-5 Program, the investor becomes a limited partner of the company that owns the investment project while for the Portugal Golden Visa program, the investor becomes a co-owner of the property. In both cases, the investor does not need to actively manage the project.

For programs that do not involve establishing a business, return of funds varies per program. Canada business immigration programs like the federal investor program and Quebec investor program require the investment to be maintained for 5 years. For the US EB-5 Program, funds are returned once the investor’s conditional status is removed. For the Portugal Golden Visa Program, funds are returned after permanent residency is attained, or if the investor wishes, after citizenship is attained. The investor may also choose to keep the investment and continue earning the annual rental income on the project.
