Wailian Overseas Consulting Group, Ltd. one of China’s largest immigration consultants, has partnered with Juwai.com, to help more high-networth Chinese individuals who seek permanent residency in the US to obtain EB-5 investor visas.
More than four out of five EB-5 visas obtained in 2014 went to Chinese applicants.
Under the terms of the agreement, the two companies will exclusively work together on the marketing of real estate development projects that are approved for participation in the EB-5 program and vetted by Wailian.
Wailian will play its proven role as consultant and adviser, helping Chinese investors identify premium investment opportunities, obtain green cards and meet the program’s often complex requirements.
The property portal will publish qualified EB-5 investment opportunities on Juwai.com and introduce them to its monthly audience of 2.6 million Chinese international property buyers, then introduce potential investors to Wailian.
Linda He, president and CEO of Wailian, said: “This new affiliation will greatly benefit our clients – making it even easier for
them to discover new EB-5 investment opportunities, because they will be featured right on Juwai.com’s very popular platform.
“Many international property buyers are also interested in learning about immigration and visa laws.
“The U.S. EB-5 visa program can be very attractive for potential investors, because it allows them to bring their spouses and children and is not tied to a job or employer.
“As the leading service provider in the industry, Wailian completes a rigorous examination routine as part of our due diligence before introducing new investment opportunities to our clients.
“Working with Juwai.com gives us a strategic advantage, because Juwai.com has the largest audience of Chinese international property hunters.”
Simon Henry, co-CEO of Juwai.com, said: “We’re very excited to be able to introduce the consumers who use Juwai.com to China’s best immigration consulting group.
“Wailian is a company we trust, and we are very comfortable introducing Wailian to our users.
“Just over one third of our users tell us that they are interested in immigration, making it the second biggest driver for international property purchase, after pure investment goals.
“The EB-5 program is of great interest to high-net-worth individuals who would like to obtain a US green card.
“China has the world’s second largest high-net-worth population and mints 40,000 new millionaires per year. Even if only a tiny percentage of those decide to immigrate, they can provide a large pool of capital to job-creating projects in the US.”
