If you’re a Mexican national wanting to immigrate to the United States through the EB5 visa program, you should know the following.
The EB5 Immigrant Visa Is a Pathway to Citizenship!
The EB5 Immigrant Visa
The EB5 Immigrant Visa gives the opportunity to foreign nationals to obtain a U.S. Permanent Residency through a qualified real estate investment. The EB5 investment amount can be either $1,000,000 million or $500,000 dollars (depending on the location of the project) and it must create a minimum of 10 jobs.
Getting your Conditional Green Card will take you at most 3-4 years. This is one of the easier and faster ways to immigrate to the U.S.
Being a Mexican National Could Help You
“Unlike Chinese nationals, Mexican investors are able to move through the EB5 process as quickly as possible. There is no backlog for the Green Card under the EB5 category in Mexico and there is no backlog coming any time soon either” says Alexander Perez, an immigration attorney for Houston-based Foster Global Immigration Solutions.
The EB5 visa process can seem lengthy, especially when dealing with the tax portion. There are a lot of documents to furnish and information to gather. It can be daunting to think about.
The good news is that being a Mexican national can be a plus! The Mexican taxation system is so similar to the United States’ system that finding proof you’ve paid the appropriate taxes is pretty easy. So easy, in fact, that a Mexican national like yourself could possibly move through the EB5 visa program a lot quicker than investors from other countries.
No matter what country an EB5 investor wants to emigrate from, they’ll need to provide documented proof of where their funds come from. But again, being a Mexican national might speed up your EB5 process, not only does Mexico notarize their legal transactions, they also provide so much detail that it makes verifying your information that much easier.
A CPA with international tax knowledge can ease your tax burden.
Check With a CPA For Tax Treaties
Once you become a permanent resident of the United States you’ll be taxed on any income you make within the U.S. You will also be taxed on any income you make in Mexico. However, the United States does have tax treaties with several countries that could ease your world tax burden.
That’s why it’s important that you check with a United States CPA before you get your Green Card. A CPA with international tax knowledge will ensure you’ll use the most advantageous tax strategies.
Alexander Perez agrees.
“That should really be done prior to landing, arriving, and receiving the conditional Green Card. It’s an issue that the investor needs to be thoughtful about earlier on in the process than they sometimes realize.”
