ORLANDO, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Carlos M. Colombo, one of America’s top Immigration Attorneys specializing in the filing of EB-5 Visas and other employment and investment based visas, will be providing a series of seminars to inform potential investors, developers, realtors, attorneys and those affected by this change about US Immigration options in the wake of the recent announcement increasing the minimum investment threshold for an EB-5 Visa from $500,000 to $900,000 for targeted employment areas (TEAs) and up to $1.8 million for all other investments effective November 21, 2019.
The EB-5 Visa allows foreign investors and their immediate family members to obtain a green card in the US through an investment among other requirements. On July 24th, DHS announced the upcoming increase along with many other changes to the EB-5 program. Attorney Colombo explained that he has received dozens of calls from clients following the announcement and that the seminars will provide an “opportunity for potential investors and those involved in the EB-5 program to understand the impact of the changes to the EB-5 program and get a sense of their options for a green card before the November deadline.” Mr. Colombo, who has successfully filed hundreds of EB-5 Visas for clients in over two decades of legal experience, expressed that it was important for potential EB-5 investors to understand the changes as quickly as possible in order have the best opportunity to file a successful application.
The Seminars are set to take place throughout Florida with the first occurring on August 27th in Miami, the second on August 28th in Orlando and the final seminar on September 5th in Tampa. During the seminars, Mr. Colombo will provide a comprehensive analysis of the current EB-5 green card process as well as the impact of the changes and potential alternative green card options.
