As South Africans living in the US, we receive inquiries from friends and family members that live in South Africa on what the options are to relocate to the US.
To apply for US residency has been notoriously difficult for South Africans to navigate and attain. However, there are feasible options, especially for wealthy investors.
The need that fellow South Africans have expressed to pursue the possibilities of a Green Card was the reason that we have created FeatherBrooke Capital.
We understand that the pursuit of US residency is not only an investment decision, but a desire to secure the future for our families. It is with this understanding that we endeavor to provide personal service that is aimed at delivering the desired outcome.
