Western Energy Regional Center is offering an alternative to the F-1 Student Visa for Indians pursuing higher education in America.
Western Energy Regional Center—a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)-approved EB-5 Regional Center—will host informational seminars in Mumbai, Pune and New Delhi, India, in October for those wishing to pursue higher education in America. The seminars are to designed to educate high-net-worth (HNW) Indian families about the benefits of the EB-5 investor program versus an F-1 student visa for children who wish to attend an American college or university. The EB-5 Program has been in effect since 1990. Through the program, immigrants to the U.S. invest $500,000 (approximately Rupees 3.35 crores) into a U.S. Government-approved Regional Center, such as Western Energy. The program provides permanent residency to investors and their immediate family. The EB-5 Investor will receive all of the same benefits as a U.S. citizen, and the family will retain these benefits and opportunities for all succeeding generations. Western Energy’s research into HNW Indian families has revealed the following:
They do not want the uncertainty associated with visa lotteries; they want the certainty of their immigration status in advance.
They do not like paying the inflated fees charged to foreign students by U.S. universities.
They do not want their children to have work restrictions after they graduate. The requirement to be “sponsored” by their employer after graduation causes a competitive disadvantage for top positions. The need for sponsorship also reduces the opportunity to pursue entrepreneurial opportunities.
