Auray Capital United States

The United States is the third most populous country in the world and provides investors with unsurpassed opportunities. Known for its diversity of population and climate, the United States affords its residents a great quality of life.

The EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program was created by the United States Congress in 1990 to generate economic activity in the United States through the creation of jobs and investment by foreign investors. In 1992, a pilot program was enacted that would allow certain EB-5 visas to be set aside for investors that choose to invest in Regional Centers instead of making a direct investment in a new commercial enterprise. The administration of the EB-5 program is conducted by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
