The EB-5 Green Card: Indian Applicants Resident in Singapore
Information On the EB5 Process for Indian Nationals
The EB5 program enables a qualified Indian investor to obtain Permanent Residency for themselves and their immediate family by making an investment in the United States that creates ten jobs for U.S. workers.

Special Considerations for Singapore Residents
As with many regions of the world there are special considerations for Indian Nationals who are resident in Singapore. Davies & Associates is familiar with these issues and seamlessly guides clients through the EB5 process.
Davies & Associates
Indian Nationals Service in Singapore
As a leading U.S. immigration law firm focused on providing outstanding service and value to Indian Nationals seeking EB-5 visas. Davies & Associates recognizes the importance of Singapore to many of our Indian clients. Our global EB5 lawyer frequently visit our clients and their professional advisors in Singapore, we also attend interviews with our clients at the U.S. Consulate on Napier Road.
Davies & Associates represents multiple Indian EB5 investors resident in Singapore, the Arabian Gulf, every major metropolitan region of India, the United States and other locations.
Despite our frequent representation of Indian clients we believe that Davies & Associates is probably unique in terms of our record of success representing Indian clients and with EB5 Petitions in general. As of July 2015 no EB5 Petition of any kind filed by our firm has ever been denied or even been subjected to a Request for Evidence.
Source of Funds Tracing for Singaporean Residents
Part of a successful EB5 Petition involves proving to the US Government that your EB5 investment has come from lawful sources. In our experience many Indian Nationals resident in Singapore require special attention in this with the tracing of their investment funds, our firm is used to assisting clients to provide full and proper documentation in this area.
Transfer of Funds for EB5 Purposes:
The Reserve Bank of India
(“RBI”), LRS and ODI Limits
While RBI LRS regulations are not relevant to most Indian Nationals resident in Singapore this is not always the case. Where assets that will be used for EB5 purposes that are held in India expert advice on the RBI regulations is required.
Preventing Unnecessary Taxes
Singapore is a jurisdiction offering Indian Nationals highly favourable tax advantages.
Indian Nationals obtaining a U.S. “green card” subject themselves to global taxation of their worldwide income in the United States.
Indian Nationals who engage in proper tax planning BEFORE they obtain a “green card” are often able to restructure their assets so as to legally minimize or eliminate U.S. tax liabilities.
Every month of the year the tax lawyers at Davies & Associates assist clients with tax planning ahead of their obtaining a “green card”.

I had the pleasure of working with Verdie and Nessa to obtain my E2 Visa. Their in-depth knowledge and experience allowed me to be fully prepared in my application and they were able to answer all questions leading up to the Visa interview.
Verdie was an amazing attorney, providing exceptional client care throughout the process. He had a great depth of knowledge in all areas on business visas in the US.
Thanks to them for handling my E2 visa very professionally. I had a study visa from F1 and changed it to E2. I encountered many problems during the application process. Verdie and Etta were very patient in helping me and it took a long time. I highly recommend this place.

The entire process of getting an EB5 visa is handled in a professional way by Mark Davies and his team. EB5 is a wonderful option for anyone considering moving to the United States if you have the means. I was hoping to use the H1B route for my children, but it became unreliable and so I looked to the EB5 Visa instead. It is great for anyone who has the resources. Mark gives you the first meetings himself which gives you great comfort. Both Mark and Sanjay are abundantly available and I even had the pleasure of hosting them at my house.Parent of 2 EB5 Visa Holders
I'm in a process of extending my L1 visa. I submitted a few questions regarding my case and he contacted me back almost immediately both by e-mail and telephone. Unlike other attorneys I met before, he gave me the impression of knowing from the top of his head what kind of visa I have, and what actions had to be taken to extend it. He is very thorough and clear regarding the process and what to expect in terms of timelines and issues that may arise. He is constantly in contact, so you definitely know he's working on your case.L1B Visa Holder
Mark Davies is a joy to work with. His extensive knowledge, speedy response and attentive service took away all my fears of dealing with immigration and visa applications. He is very generous with his time in explaining every step along the way and I have already and will in the future recommend him to anybody who is looking for an immigration lawyer.E2 Visa for Small Professional Business With International Offices
Davies & Associates assisted us with an immigration emergency involving my brother's fiancée who was outside the United States. They assisted us in an highly professional manner, working with the relevant US embassy, US immigration and the governments of two other countries. As a result of their efforts the individual involved is now working in the United States. While their knowledge of the law is exemplary what really distinguishes this firm and attorney Davies from any other firm we have worked with is their dedication to customer service and their unrivaled level of professionalism.Complex Fiancée Visa Need Involving Multiple International Jurisdictions
