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.

US and India

Our Experience

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.

Our Success

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

business taxes

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”.

"After finding D&A through an internet search in 2020, my wife and I had several free consultations with David Cantor. Despite our initial attempt at filing for our E2 visa independently ending in failure, we decided to hire D&A for their expertise and support. Over the course of four long years, Verdie and Cristina were incredibly patient as we took our time to prepare for the E2 submission. Verdie became our E2 Attorney in 2021, and from the start, Verdie and Cristina's patience was evident. Despite our intermittent engagement over the years, they always treated us with the utmost attention. Working with Verdie and the D&A team was a pleasure; their professionalism and support were unwavering. Verdie's calm demeanor and succinct communication style made navigating the process much smoother, even during complex discussions. I wholeheartedly recommend Verdie and D&A - Davies & Associates, to anyone seeking an immigration law firm who can efficiently handle their case with precision and without unnecessary fanfare. Their ability to get things done speaks volumes about their dedication to their clients' success."

Getting my E2 Visa was a very in-depth process that took just over a year from when I committed to it, but 8 months from when I found a business I wanted to purchase. The only reason I'm giving 4 and not 5 stars is because the timeframe was a lot longer than expected from the initial information. Aside from the timing, Verdie and his team led me through the Visa process, providing all the guidance I needed to be successful, including advising me on the RIGHT type of Visa to suit my goals. Within the process I purchased a business and the greater Davies team included lawyer Rinat who helped me put the deal together. One of the biggest parts was my Business Plan which created from my info by Ana Ortiz, who did an incredible job. The process is certainly tedious and Verdie & Christina were always there to answer my questions, provide suggestions and advice and ensure I had all the documents I needed to support my application. I appreciated their patience with my questions and their advice and in the end, the application was so thorough the interview process was quick and easy. I highly recommend Davies & Associates and look forward to working with them again when it's time to renew my Visa.
