MILWAUKEE ? Late last month, Michael Gibson and George Wozencraft of U.S. Advisors set out on quite an ambitious road trip, crisscrossing the U.S.A. for the purpose of meeting with the principals of EB5 regional centers and other EB5 visa experts. Beginning in Naples, Florida, visting an EB5 visa project being handled through America's Center for Foreign Investment, and arriving in Houston, Texas during the last week in April, Michael and George also managed to meet with the City of Dallas Regional Center (Civitas Capital) before heading to Memphis, Tennessee.
Now, during the first week of May, Michael and George have already made it to Milwaukee, Wisconsin and, by the end of the week, plan to speak with EB5 visa attorneys and regional center principals in Chicago.
Upcoming stops along the trip include Detroit, Cleveland, Buffalo, and New York City. After that, Michael and George will be checking in on regional centers in Washington D.C., Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, and other locations in the Deep South before setting up in Houston again by early June.
Along the way, they are accumulating film footage and conducting interviews with investment immigration specialists involved with the USCIS EB5 visa program.??
So far, the trip has been a great success. Wrapping up their initial jaunt through the South by meeting with immigration attorney Greg Siskand in Memphis, Michael and George have made it to the Midwest, and stops in Illinois and Wisconsin will include CMB Export Regional Center in Moline, IL as well as the Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce (MMAC). Both institutions are active regional centers under the EB5 visa program.
According to MMAC, ?the Milwaukee [EB5 visa] Immigrant Investment Zone includes Kenosha, Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Racine, Waukesha, Washington, and Walworth couties,? which makes it quite a large EB5 visa investment area for the midwestern United States.??
In Chicago, Michael and George will meet with Taher Kameli, principal at Chicagoland Foreign Investment Group Regional Center, in addition to other EB5 visa and immigration attorneys in the area.??
Visiting EB5 regional centers, however, hasn?t been the only thing occupying U.S. Advisors? time while on the current road trip. Since hitting the road, Michael has also managed to participate in the most recent ILW ?Investor Options for Experts? phone seminar focused on such EB5 visa issues as direct jobs, indirect jobs, and induced jobs. This phone seminar series will continue throughout the Spring, with additional discussions on May 20th and June 10th.
Regular updates on the progress made by Michael and George ? meetings, discussions, and updates on regional center projects ? will appear as U.S. Advisors continues its 2010 EB5 visa road trip.
