Why would an EB-5 investor want to invest in the program?

I am seeking more information about the EB-5 visa. Why would an entrepreneur want to make an investment in the EB-5 program? Is it worth it for the EB-5 investor to get a visa through this program?

    For those who can afford an EB-5 investment and are otherwise qualified under the EB-5 program, this is one of the few direct ways to immigrate to the United States for permanent residence. This option is not for maximizing return on investment, but rather to get a green card.

    To create at least 10 American jobs, invest in a local American community and by doing so, obtain a green card and opportunity for American citizenship for your family.

    The EB-5 program is one of the few direct paths to a green card (other than marrying a U.S. citizen). As an investment, there may be more profitable ways to use your funds, but the goal for most EB-5 investors is to obtain U.S. permanent residency.

    It depends on the investor's desire to obtain a green card for himself, spouse, and minor children. Is it beneficial to have access to the United States for business and or educational facilities for his family? EB-5 is probably the easiest and most efficient way to obtain permanent residence for those who can afford it.

    Approval rates are close to 90 percent and there are good projects out there. For most, this is the only option to get a green card.

    An EB-5 investor would invest in the program as it is an opportunity for him/her to get a green card.
