We recently got an approval for our direct EB5 client.
Client put $1 million and her relative put another $1 million to buy a restaurant in San Jose, California. The company is also doing other business. We helped clients working on incorporation, other business registration, business plan, source and path of funds.
USCIS approved the first investor in about 18 months.
Three months ago USCIS approved another of our direct EB5 case.
If you know exactly what business you want to do and you have friends/relatives to assist you in the United States, direct investment is very viable.
