EB-5 Visa Update

Following is an update from our colleagues at the US government-designated “Fast Track” EB-5 Visa Regional Centre at Lake Buena Vista Resort & Spa in Orlando, minutes from Walt Disney World:

The Lake Buena Vista Resort Team is getting ready for another busy summer season. We continue to see foreign visitors touring our Resort and investing in our Regional Center. This is their fast track to obtaining permanent U.S. residency and a Green Card. If you are a foreign national and would like more details regarding the EB-5 visa program and our Regional Center, please visit www.eb5greencardusa.com.

Another reason visitors (and muggles) will be flocking to Orlando is the June 18th grand opening of “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter” at Universal Studios. Excitement is in the air and anxious Potter fans have made their reservations to stay at our Resort.

May 12, 2010 – Washington DC – InfoPass is a free service that lets you schedule an appointment with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Immigration Officer by using the Internet any time of day or night. If you have an immigration issue that is best handled by a trained USCIS Immigration Officer, InfoPass will let you schedule an appointment instead of requesting it in person at your local USCIS office.

May 11, 2010 – Washington DC – The USCIS announced it has redesigned the Permanent Residency “Green Card” to incorporate several major, new security features. State-of-the-art technology prevents counterfeiting, obstructs tampering, and facilitates quick and accurate authentication of the card. Beginning today, USCIS will issue all Green Cards in the new, more secure format.

Earlier this month, Lake Buena Vista Resort’s Ofer Fridfertig was invited to Fort Walton Beach, Florida by the Emerald Coast Association of Realtors to speak at their seminar and class entitled “EB-5Visas and International Investors.” There was a great turnout for this event organized by Paula Bailey, Educational Director of the Emerald Coast Association and sponsorship lead by Gail Silvers, Chairperson of Emerald Coast’s International Council. Realtors were very interested to learn how they could help their international clients invest in the United States and obtain a permanent Green Card. Mr. Fridfertig answered questions and invited the attendees to visit the Lake Buena Vista Resort and see for themselves why this is such a great investment opportunity.

The Lake Buena Vista Team will hold a seminar in Santa Cruz, Bolivia on June 17, 2010 from 5 PM – 10 PM at the Cainco Industrial and Business Chamber of Commerce. Also hosting the event will be USA Minar. You must be registered to attend this seminar.

Come join us in the Sunshine State – where the water’s warm and the prices are right!
