EB-5 Question of the Week: Why should I file my U.S. golden visa application with The American Legal Center?

By working with The American Legal Center, you can simplify the process of obtaining your Green Card through the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program and increase your chances of success.

The EB-5 program of the United States allows foreign investors to obtain Green Cards for themselves and their qualifying family members, including spouse and children under the age of 21, with an investment of $800,000 in a government pre-approved real estate project.

Working with an experienced EB-5 consultant is key to a successful EB-5 application. The American Legal Center is the top immigration consultancy in the Middle East laser focused on assisting families with their U.S. golden visa applications. Shai Zamanian, the Legal Director and founder of The American Legal Center, has solidified his reputation as the foremost expert in the GCC region when it comes to the EB-5 program. Together with his team of U.S. licensed lawyers and professionals, they have assisted hundreds of families around the world, particularly out of the GCC region, in filing their EB-5 applications. Here are the top three reasons why you should work with The American Legal Center in filing your EB-5 application.

1. U.S. qualified lawyers and experts based out of the Middle East

The team of U.S. licensed lawyers and professionals at The American Legal Center have been active in the EB-5 industry for over a decade. With their headquarters based out of Dubai, they are aware of issues that are pertinent to residents of the Middle East. 

When preparing an EB-5 application, it is crucial to present the application in a manner that is easily comprehensible for the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) officer who will be assessing it. The personal and financial information and documentation must be presented in a simple and coherent manner. A key requirement of the EB-5 program is showing that the source and path of funds used for the capital investment is lawful. Legitimacy of an investor’s source and path of funds is generally demonstrated with annual tax returns and business ownership documents. Due to different taxation laws and commercial companies laws that are applicable in the GCC, an EB-5 application for an applicant out of the GCC region may not be similar to those of an applicant from a different region. For instance, UAE residents cannot show personal tax returns in the UAE and must therefore rely on other supplementary documents to demonstrate the legitimacy of their funds. With over ten years of experience in the GCC region, The American Legal Center has specialized knowledge in regard to the source of funds documentation required for GCC residents in filing a successful EB-5 application.

In addition to their knowledge of local laws and regulations, the presence of The American Legal Center in Dubai is beneficial for investors based out of this region. This is because clients have the option of meeting the team at any time in their offices in Dubai. This proximity provides the luxury of convenience for EB-5 applicants, providing them with accessible support and timely assistance.

Shai Zamanian, the Legal Director of The American Legal Center, has processed over 500 Green Cards for families around the world, particularly out of the GCC region. Prior to onboarding clients and submitting their EB-5 applications, The American Legal Center prequalifies candidates to ensure that they are the right fit for the program.
