Download this issue (3.84 MB)

This issue of Global Perspectives takes a spin around the world looking at investment visas, initially examining the U.S.'s EB-5, as well as similar initiatives in countries around the world. Each program uses different levers to attract specific types of capital, investment and entrepreneurial skills--and is designed to benefit various aspects of a country's economy.

In This Issue

Launched in 1990 by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS), the EB-5 visa program helps the U.S. compete for international capital against other countries that offer similar programs. It is designed to attract foreign investment in projects that create jobs for U.S. citizens.
