Visa waiver program is now permanent

The visa waiver program allows nationals of certain countries to enter the US as tourist or business visitors for three months without obtaining visas from the US Embassy. The US House of Representatives passed a bill to make the program permanent. The bill also creates a special immigration status for employees of INTELSAT, a satellite communications company that was controlled by various governments, but is now being privitized. The last point of the bill includes an extension of the Immigrant Investor Pilot Program which allows non-US citizens to invest through regional centers. This procedure relaxes the job creation requirements for employment creation and lowers the amount of which you need to invest into the US to become a permanent resident.
