Amid a decade of painfully weak economic growth, more than a dozen developed
countries have introduced new immigration-track visas for entrepreneurs. The best of these programs have modest investment thresholds and defined procedures for identifying entrepreneurial talent. They should serve as models to reform existing “investor” visas in countries such as United States, which are rife with fraud. This Note identifies several features of the new visas that should become common for all of them and argues for better coordination among countries offering them, so that they serve as vehicles for common opportunity and economic growth, and not merely for raiding talent.
