NEW YORK, May 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Lightstone, one of the largest privately held real estate companies in the United States, announced the opening of its new offices in Mumbai and Bangalore. The expansion into India is a key part of the company's broader exploration of emerging EB-5 markets globally.

The EB-5 visa program offers investors, their spouses and minor, unmarried children a path to becoming permanent legal residents of the United States. By investing in a qualified U.S. project with a minimum investment of $500,000 and creating at least 10 full-time American jobs, an EB-5 investor may receive conditional permanent residence status for two years, during which time they are free to live, work and attend school in the United States. If the EB-5 investment meets all conditions, investors may receive permanent resident status within just a few years.

Leading the India operations will be Sachin Chandavarkar, Managing Director of Asia Capital Markets at Lightstone. The office opening comes at an opportune time as the EB-5 Regional Center Program was reauthorized to continue until September 30, 2019. "At Lightstone, we're excited to have a local presence in India, and we have full teams in the country ready to assist those interested in obtaining an EB-5 Visa," said Chandavarkar.

If anyone would like to know more about the EB-5 visa program and the opportunities it provides, visit Lightstone online and fill out the contact form. A representative of the Indian field office will get in touch.
