New Delhi, November 11, 2016: U.S. private investment firm LCR Capital Partners believes that the EB-5 immigrant investor visa program would remain unaffected post Donald Trump’s succession as the President of the United States of America.
Speaking on Trump’s historic victory Suresh Rajan, CEOand Founder, LCR Capital Partners said,“Although Donald Trump’s victory was unexpected, the EB-5 program remains the fastest, simplest and most reliable way to achieve permanent residency in the United States. It isa proven American job creation program, which legally welcomes thousands of investors, entrepreneurs and talented students from all over the world to the United States each year and at no cost to the U.S. taxpayer. We believe that the EB-5 program will continue to enjoy broad bi-partisan support in the U.S. Congress and by President-Elect Trump’s new administration.“
The EB-5 program supports Trump’s philosophy of fostering immigration that stimulates the economy and leads to job creation. The holder of the EB-5 immigrant visa by way of their significant investment in the US economy facilitates the creation of new businesses acrossthe US. We expect to see a steady growth in Indian applicants to the US through thisprogram.

About the EB-5 Program
The EB-5 Investor Visa Program is the fastest and most reliable way for Indian high-net-worth investors to earn a U.S. green card. The program provides U.S. green cards and permanent residency to an investor and their immediate family (all children up to age of 21) through a one-time investment of $500,000 USD into a new U.S. business that creates 10 or more American jobs.
Since most other alternatives to obtain a U.S. green card (e.g. H-1B, EB-2, EB-3) involve long waiting times and cumbersome processes, LCR’s clients are increasingly taking advantage of the EB-5 visa’s multiple benefits including high approval rates (95%+), relatively quick processing times (~15 to 18 months) and a competitive return.
