During the last decade, investment immigration has been a major driving force and very popular among Chinese to immigrate into the USA.
Chinese immigration investment has also become a major financing for the developers in network. Many of the high-end residential communities are also being built with the investment from Chinese immigration applicants.
The EB-5 program, an investment immigration plan has been a very popular among foreign investors to apply and access green cards with an investment of 500,000 USD or more providing at least 10 jobs in USA.
The EB-5 program was introduced in 1990, but the number of applicants increased phenomenally in the last four years raising the number of green cards issued to more than 10000 in 2014 from around 2000 in 2010.
The surge is mainly resulted due to growth of the high income earners and growing number of Chinese overseas students.
EB-5 program is also very easy for Chinese to immigrate and apply for green card as it does not require any requirements of skill in language, education and work experience.
As EB-5 at is going to expire in September, the United States may extend the act, and will be going to raise the investment limit to 800,000 USD to apply for green card.
In 2013, the EB-5 program brought the investment of around 1.5 billion USD and created 31,000 jobs.
