EB-5 petitions approved in 45 days

EB-5 Petitions approved in 45 days

National Interest Project accelerates approval of EB-5 petitions (Expedite Processing)

Very rarely, the USCIS (US Citizenship and Immigration Service) approves the National Interest status for an EB-5 project. This exceptional situation may allow both project and investor petitions to have priority in their evaluation and approval, which is called Expedite Processing. 

Recently, USCIS has decided to benefit from the EB-5 project of a large sports complex in the State of North Carolina, whose investors are receiving approval of their petitions on an average of 45 days, while in normal projects, the average approval time is 25 months, and increasing.  

For investors of this project, access to the EB-5 Visa and the Green Card may only take between 5 and 8 months, which is a very rare opportunity. Everything will depend on the speed of the consular process, if they are outside the US, or the status adjustment, if they are already in the country.

Projects of National Interest typically have a very large demand, both for the short period of approval of the petitions and for the perception of greater investment security in a project recognized by the government as being important and a priority. It is anticipated that the EB-5 investment quotas for this project will not be available for a long time, so interested potential EB-5 investors should take immediate action to take advantage of this opportunity

Petições EB-5 aprovadas em 45 dias

Petições EB-5 aprovadas em 45 dias

Projeto de Interesse Nacional acelera a aprovação de petições EB-5 (Expedited Processing)

Muito raramente, o USCIS (Serviço de Imigração e Cidadania dos EUA) aprova o status de Interesse Nacional para um projeto EB-5. Esta situação excepcional pode permitir que tanto o projeto quanto as petições dos investidores tenham prioridade na sua avaliação e aprovação, o que se chama Expedited Processing.

Em 10 de Abril de 2018 o USCIS decidiu beneficiar o projeto EB-5 de um grande complexo esportivo no Estado de North Carolina, cujos investidores estão recebendo a aprovação de suas petições em uma média de 45 dias, enquanto em projetos normais, o prazo médio de aprovação atual é de 25 meses, e subindo.

Para os investidores deste projeto, o acesso ao Visto EB-5 e ao Green Card poderá levar apenas entre 5 e 8 meses, o que é uma oportunidade raríssima. Tudo vai depender da velocidade do processo consular, se estiverem fora dos EUA, ou de ajuste de status, se já estiverem no país. 

Projetos de Interesse Nacional têm tipicamente uma procura muito grande, tanto pelo prazo reduzido de aprovação das petições quanto pela percepção de maior segurança de investimento em um projeto reconhecido pelo próprio governo como sendo importante e prioritário. A previsão é de que as cotas de investimento EB-5 deste projeto não estejam disponíveis por muito tempo, e portanto os interessados devem agir imediatamente para aproveitar esta oportunidade.  

Entre em contato com para saber todos os detalhes sobre este projeto, e como garantir a residência permanente (Green Card) nos Estados Unidos, em poucos meses, através deste investimento.

If you snooze, you lose! Accelerated adaption to Digital Transformation is required!

By Vegard Rooth– Managing Director, InterimLeder – Norway

Businesses wanting to stay in front and keep up the pace in digital transformation are required to move fast. Change and adaptability is imperative, possibly the most important, to pave the future. Those quickly adapting, win!

“Remember that change process we undertook in 1990? Those were the days!”. 

Not anymore. Times when businesses were done with change processes are gone. Technology, digitalisation and disruption is now. Digital transformation has no boundaries. Robots build cars and perform surgery. Driverless cars are trialed and have the green light. The majority, if not most, of our lives are controlled from a cloud (or a mobile device). Where we purchase and how we use the goods and its services tomorrow, are completely unknown today.

Digital transformation is happening brutally fast – what is new and revolutionary somewhere in the world yesterday, is possibly already outdated by competition tomorrow, or today for that matter. Digital innovation is happening at the speed of light (at least it feels like it) and business models are being challenged by what is termed as Digital Disruption. This riveting development not only requires rapid change and adaption of businesses, it demands cutting-edge innovation across competing technology companies. Digital disruptionhits hard on other sectors that may not be well prepared.

When will this reach my sector?

The question is somewhat outdated already!

When will digital disruption and paradigm shift to your industry and your business? Are you prepared? Do you have the right people to cope with changes, including the correct management in place? Is there enough drive and tenacity among the management and on the companys´ board to set new speed when needed?

I think it is important to raise your gaze and be prepared that “more sooner than later” digital disruption will be on your doorstep, almost no matter where you work. It can also be a good idea to have a plan for how you are going to meet the changes.

Quick adaption is a “must”

Adaptability is critical for survival in this digital age. Some manage it – others don´t. From 2000 to 2014 half the companies on the Fortune 500 list disappeared! Perhaps this is not so strange: Big businesses have a larger ship to turn around, and when change is not happening fast enough or in the right direction, they become abruptly irrelevant.

Kodak is perhaps the most famous for many examples so far, of their inability to seriously see the need for digital transition. The “digital giant”, Nokia, lost the market because they were not fast enough with their adaptability to digital innovation.

I personally remember the resistance we met in SAS when introducing automatic check-in at Gardermoen. Now we are seeing staff-free border control in countries like Australia!

Development comes by putting yourself at the forefront, instead of sitting on the fence or even trying to stop it.

First to the future

Willi Railo wrote a book with a good title «Først til fremtiden», translated to “First to the future”. It has always been a favorite of mine. The future is created, by the one that gets there first! The rest follows more or less voluntarily thereafter – until death.

It´s the mentality in this picture which, in my opinion, is important when realigning a business quickly enough to survive. Making change, and an arena for thought change, a usual activity of your business. Never stop ideas with “but we have already tried this” mentality. Encourage innovation by those who dare to speak out and think outside of the box!

I’m not saying it’s easy. Ideas and new thoughts can also be a challenge. It takes time to rethink things we are already doing, right?

Common goals within personal and leadership

What does it take to “create the future”? My advice is: good insight in current and future skills needed in your own organization, dynamic movement in the existing expertise, along with a proactive culture (“how we do it here”).

Good management is essential to create the confidence that is needed in times of restructuring. Managers who have been in battle before, know how to deal with it. Don’t be afraid to replace a distance runner with a shot putter, if it’s a shot putter you need. Dare to acknowledge who is good for what is required and use the strength of another in their area of expertise.

In conclusion, I will venture to create a formula:

Dynamic management = Dynamic company = business survival skills and safe jobs (albeit new).

Darwin is right… The most adaptable survive!

The EB-5 Visa countdown

The EB-5 investment did not increase.
So why do I still have to rush?

 

Once again the much-discussed reform of the US EB-5 Visa Program did not happen on March 23rd, and the new “D-Day” is now September 30. For now, the rules are the same and the minimum investment remains at US$ 500,000.

For those who do not know the details it may seem that everything is rumors, fake news, etc. But the truth is that for years this subject has been several times very close to a definition by the US Congress, and at the last minute does not get the necessary consensus. But that does not mean it will not happen. On the contrary. The probability only increases with each attempt.

In addition, the Immigration Service (USCIS) had already announced that it would change the rules on its own, if Congress did not do so again, and this could happen at any time. In this case, the minimum investment would go to US$ 1.35 million.

The application process for the EB-5 Visa takes several weeks, even months, so the interested candidates have no time to waste. Only petitions already submitted may be exempt from any changes.

A contagem regressiva para o Visto EB-5

O investimento para o Visto EB-5 não subiu.
Então, porque ainda tenho de correr?

 

Mais uma vez a muito discutida reforma do Programa de Vistos EB-5 dos Estados Unidos não aconteceu em 23 de março passado, e o novo “Dia D” agora é 30 de setembro. Por ora, as regras continuam as mesmas e o  investimento mínimo permanece em US$ 500.000.

Para quem não conhece os detalhes pode parecer que tudo não passa de boatos, notícias falsas, etc. Mas a verdade é que há anos este assunto já esteve várias vezes muito perto de uma definição pelo congresso americano, e no último minuto não obtém o consenso necessário. Mas isso não quer dizer que não vai acontecer. Ao contrário. A probabilidade só aumenta a cada tentativa.  

Além disso, o Serviço de Imigração (USCIS) já havia anunciado que mudaria as regras por conta própria, se mais uma vez o congresso não o fizesse, e isto pode ocorrer a qualquer momento. Neste caso, o investimento mínimo iria para US$ 1,35 milhão.     

O processo de aplicação para o Visto EB-5 leva várias semanas, até meses, e por isso os interessados não têm tempo a perder. Só petições já apresentadas poderão ficar isentas de eventuais mudanças.   

Entre em contato para saber tudo sobre o Programa de Vistos EB-5 e como garantir a residência permanente (Green Card) nos Estados Unidos, através de investimento.
