I believe JRF was referring to the H1B route which has a GC waiting period of approx 8 years for EB2.

I myself was looking to apply for EB 5 visa. Somebdy mentioned if u hv 100k n can convince embassy of ur business proposal then, I might get visa. I wanna invest in a motel (outright purchase /franchise). It's better to land in USA and tke decision aftr staying for 6-8 mnths. Second business could be real estate or property investment but cannot manage properties till u hv proper visa. Third business could be gas station but investment is high here. I hv a friend who has 2 gas station in Atlanta. 3-4 partners can come together n invest. Even Baskin robins franchise is good business.

US GC is a joke .

You will get taxed on your world wide income & investments & reveal ALL bank accounts, once you have a US GC or US Citizenship..irrespective of whether you live in US again or not & don't earn a penny in US.

Canadian taxation is based on RESIDENCY . US taxation is based on CITIZENSHIP/GC status.

So unless you give up your US GC or Citizenship , the US IRS ( CRA of US ) will keep on hounding you to file a return & pay taxes irrespective of where in the world you live & earn.

E2 is the business visa , in which a lower investment is accepted and is relatively easier to obtain for Canadians. 3 years renewable . Investment can be lower as much as $100K.

EB5 - the minimum is $500K . And it cannot be loaned ..plus a trace back should be available to avoid any money laundering possibilities.

GC waiting period is dependent on country of birth and not country of citizenship. Waiting list for people born in India is quite long via H1B route.

Food Franchise won't work here as they would have a high fixed cost and low manpower to capital ratio.

The same goes for motel and property businesses also .... low manpower generated to capital ratio.

Looking for something where investment stuck is less and manpower generation high .. for eg cleaning service ...... Yes franchise for Molly Maids may count in .

Appears either CDs are not interested in going South or the investor category is not a popular route ...

Or maybe the post was bigger than it should have been ... Have edited the title and the post now so as to seek only business/investment ideas .




Isn't that EB-5 category ???

If anyone interested, let me know i can help , We have some businesses approved for EB-5 in Chicago Area (dedicated to high employment zone)

Its not easy as people think , you need to have good settle business with proper network ...

lot of scam also happen so US govt is very strict ...

let me give u little details here: Investor will invest in property ( not just business) - money will be deposited in US bank account , your money will be secure against property two years commitment needed for investment - after two years you decided to continue investing in same property or you take your money back and invest else where ( full amount will be refund after two years - of course by minus some cost )

this is general details... if anyone wants it we can meet and discuss in person

B_P ,

Thanks for your input but I am slightly cautious against going the RC (Regional Center) route under which multiple investors syndicate their money with a single entity (RC) who utilizes them towards some infrastructure development (hospital / hotel) and charge $40K on top of the investment as consulting / managing fee.

Risks are :
There are dime a dozen RCs sprouted and a lot of scams .
You are handing over your capital to some one else and have no control over its usage .
Forget the interest , there's no guarantee of when you will get your principal back ( could be 5 years , could be more)

However since the above Project is known to you and is largely property investment related , can you please share how the employee generation is planned ...

Also did you mean area of high ' employment or unemployment ' ... in which cases there's a difference of .5 mil :)
