Exclusive Visas Success in Russia Promoting EB-5 Investment Program
Alongside countries like China, India, and Korea; Russia is attracting more and more interest as an EB-5 market. However, immigration from Russia to the United States is still not at levels similar to China and India.
Despite the infancy of the Russian EB-5 market, the Exclusive Visas’ team decided to pay a visit to this mysterious country and evaluate the situation themselves. During their visit to Moscow, Russia from March 9 to March 12, our team was able to provide EB-5 consulting services to many interested Russian citizens.
Representatives from Exclusive Visas held 4 seminars for agents in Russia educating them on EB-5 legislation, EB-5 visa requirements and existing opportunities of the investor visa program in the United States. Additionally, Exclusive Visas took part in the two-day Moscow International Investment Show on March 11-12, where we were able to evaluate the actual interest of the visitors in the EB-5 Investment visa program and particularly in the Regional Center Program.
The immediate success outcome of the trip to Russia proves that there is not enough marketing of the EB-5 investment program in Russia and due to its misinterpretation and absence of clear understanding Russian investors have not really considered the EB-5 Visa as their way to United States permanent residency. However, proper presentation of the EB-5 information and the ability of a company like Exclusive Visas to clearly explain the EB-5 visa requirements have raised serious interest among many visitors of Investment Show in Moscow, inspiring the Exclusive Visas team to continue working with this market closely.
