This one particular visa that is outlandish to any individual regardless of their gender, caste or creed. However, this one visa changes every game on Immigration, Education, and Life Settlement. The story goes, when the Pacific and Caribbean region started the program "cash for a passport" that allowed visa-free travel and provided tax advantages, all the major European powers took this advantage to a whole new dimension. No sooner USA announced EB-5 Golden Investor visa in 1990 than its European Counterparts. More shortly, by 2014 the nations Malta, Cyprus, Portugal, Austria, the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Antigua and Barbuda, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Spain, Latvia, Monaco, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Greneda, Abkhazia, Saint Lucia, Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, UAE and Dominica jumped into this opportunity. So, much so now these nations are more rich and powerful than ever before.
But the questions is who Invested into these nations to get the 2nd passport?The prominent opportunities were Russian Oligarchs( Mafia) and Chinese Oligarchs( Chinese wealthiest people) then Ukraine Oligarchs and South-West Asians such as Indians and Pakistanis wealthy individual have poured in the money to the USA first. In 1980 Microsoft CEO Bill Gates opened their factories in Shenzhen, Shanghai and Taipei, results in a lot of Chinese communists took this opportunity to invest in America. Later, that time, China was not so rich and famous a very few handfuls or a modest amount of people came forward to receive Bill gates proposal on investment visas. But, within 5 years, China has seen an increase in electronics and consumer goods overdemand from U.S. and European Counterparts. Later, that time All the Chinese individual invested in EB-5 Investment visa, Canada Investor Program, European Golden Visa program.
However, the investment in the EB-5 Investor visa revolution happened in India as well. By 1990 Mr Amitabh Bachaan, Mr Vinod Khanna, Mr Rajesh Khanna, Mr Boney Kapoor, Mr Anil Kapoor, Ms Karshima Kapoor and Mr Govinda were a few people who invested in the U.S. to receive their 2nd passport. A very nook of time, Mr Rajnikanth, N.T.Ramarao, Mr Balasubramanium Iyer and Mr Kamal Hassan also took this opportunity. Later, that time Mr Vijay Mallya, Mr Subrata Roy and Mr Nirav Modi, Mr Mehul Chouksey all were into Investor EB-5 program between 1990 to 1999. At that time, a few female activists such as Ms Shobha De, Ms Leena Nair, Ms Sussane Khan, Ms Nita Ambani all were the investors into USA Global EB-5 Investor Visa Program. Later, in this race, all the tech entrepreneurs such as Mr Azim Premzi, Mr Raju(Satyam), Mr N.R.Naryan Murthy had taken this opportunity. They have poured millions and millions of money into the USA by 1990 to 1999. Sooner, after 9/11 and 2007 market crash European Powers also joined this race of providing citizenship through Investment programs such as Malta, Cyprus, Portugal, Austria, the United Kingdom, Spain, Latvia, Monaco, Bulgaria, Ukraine and Canada.
