Originally providing immigration and investment advisory, in 2013 Lion's was approved by United States Citizen and Immigration Services as an official EB-5 Regional Center, covering the city of Philadelphia and surrounding counties in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
Lion's helps interested clients become permanent residents of the United States through strategic investments in connection with the U.S. Immigrant Investor Program "Employment Based Program #5" ("EB-5"). The United States Congress created the EB-5 program in 1990 to allow individuals (as well as their spouse and children under 21 years old) to apply for a permanent U.S. green card with an investment towards a business that will create a minimum of 10 jobs per investor.
Over the last 25 years several changes have been made to the program; it is now easier and faster for interested investors to achieve permanent resident status. Most importantly, the required investment sum has been lowered from US$1,000.000 to US$500,000 if investing through certain Regional Centers in Targeted Employment Areas. Moreover, EB-5 cases have been given priority status to significantly lower processing time.
Through 2016, Lion's completed a number of Consulting Projects, which facilitated in raising $387,500,000 in EB-5 investments.
