Bill proposes ‘Homeowner Visa’ for foreigners who buy residential property in US for at least $500,000
October 28, 2011
Senators Charles Schumer and Mike Lee have introduced a bill for the enactment of the Visa Improvements to Stimulate International Tourism to the United States of America Act, or VISIT-USA Act, that calls for the creation of a new ‘Homeowner Visa’ that would allow foreigners who spend at least $500,000 on residential property in the US to obtain visas that would allow them to live temporarily in the US. The provisions under the bill would create visas that are separate from current programs and there would be no numerical cap for the new, proposed Homeowner Visas. The new visa will not allow these foreign national homeowners to work in the US, unless they have obtained a regular work visa through the normal process. They would also need to pay US taxes and spend at least 180 days a year in the US, but they would be ineligible to receive any Social Security or other government benefits. Spouse and children under the age of 18 would be able to company the homeowner.
