Having successfully launched the EB-5 Immigrant Investor programme in Nigeria few months back, the Atlantic American Partners ( AAP) has so far enrolled some applicants into the programme and several others are in a bid to access visas through the programme.
Recalled that in April 2019, AAP launched its United States EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program in Nigeria; as a convenient means to help potential investors in Nigeria to secure a hassle-free immigration process to live, work, and attend school in the U.S., while also getting a reasonable return on their initial investment.
The EB-5 visa creates opportunity for foreign investors to invest in the United States and become legal permanent residents in America with a green card, along with several other benefits including the ability to travel to one’s homeland from the United States without a visa, ability to sponsor family members for a green card after becoming a citizen, access to low or no cost- high quality primary and secondary public education; and thereafter public or private colleges and universities for participants and their children (21 years old and under, unmarried) at the same cost as US citizens.
Speaking at the EB- 5 private business meeting organised by Atlantic American Partners (AAP) in Lagos, Daniel Ryan, the Managing Director, Emerging Markets Africa, said “we are dedicated to helping clients and their families achieve their immigration goals, while providing one of the safest investment solutions in the EB-5 industry”
Ryan further stated that the EB-5 visa was introduced in 1990 by the United States Congress and has since enabled a large number of families to live the American dream by granting them permanent residency through investments made in ‘trophy’ new commercial real estate investments.
Ryan remarked that the trophy new commercial real estate investments include luxury hotels, luxury rental apartments/flats, and most recently; high-quality student rental housing at American Universities.
According to him, “The EB-5 programme requires each EB-5 investor to invest $500, 000 in the United States with projects that Atlantic American Partners oversees as ‘trustee’ that will yield at least 10 permanent jobs, per applicant, for United States citizens.”
“Also, if the applicant desires, they can apply for US Citizenship and sponsor other family members to move to and live in America. It is important to note that ‘dual citizenship’ between USA and Nigeria is available, which is another tangible benefit to invest in this programme,” he noted.
