Advantages to Citizenship After EB-5 Program

If you’re considering residency in the United States, then you have undoubtedly weighed the options available, including residency or citizenship. As an accomplished EB-5 program, American Venture Solutions is well acquainted with the benefits of citizenship our successful foreign-born clients look forward to.

How United States Citizenship Benefits You

There are a number of ways that citizenship can work to your benefit. Of course, residency shares many benefits with citizenship, but is based upon specific conditions and typically for a limited time. We’ll try to focus primarily on the benefits of citizenship in contrast to residency, despite the fact the largest benefit of both is the ability to live and work in the country, to varying degrees.

Rights Under the Constitution

As a citizen of the United States, you are afforded all of the rights under the Constitution of the United States. This means that in each of the 50 states and all U.S. territories, you can exact the full rights of a nationalized or natural-born citizen. This includes your right to vote, fair trial, counsel, safe haven, ownership, and even certain protections for your family. It is extremely difficult for anyone, even the federal government, to challenge your citizenship or right to enter and exit the country freely, all because of your rights under the Constitution. For a business professional, the security that comes from having legalized, secure business holdings in this country is often worth the protections and citizenship hassle alone. The benefits don’t stop at you or your generation, however, because once you are a naturalized citizen, you can easily seek dual-citizenship with your native country for your children, even if they were not born in this country.

Public Office

While you can’t become the President of the United States as a foreign-born citizen, you can achieve many lofty offices in the country. Arnold Schwarzenegger, as one example, served for years as the Governor of California, the most populous state in the nation, despite being an Austrian citizen for the first half of his life. The ability to run for public office gives you the power to shape, even on a small scale, the policies, practices, and laws that govern our land. Historically, the United States has only benefited from bringing foreign-born nationals into public office, as the differing viewpoints and philosophies serve as a counterbalance for what we become immune to over time. In fact, it is incredibly valuable to everyone in this country when newly-made citizens run for office to enact policies that improve upon our way of life. Plus, even if you never choose to run for office, you will have the right to vote in all applicable elections like any other U.S. citizen.

Long-Term Security

Above all else, when you are a citizen of the United States, you can truly claim to be part of this great country. The security and peace of mind that comes with that are considered precious beyond words to many people in this country and around the world. The security that is afforded to U.S. citizens is extraordinary; as one of the most powerful and influential nations in the world in nearly all fields, U.S. citizenship represents opportunity. If you choose to do business with people from your native country, you will do so as a representative of both that nation and of the United States, which affords you even more enriching opportunities for business development and sustained growth.
