About EB-5

About EB-5

The EB-5 Immigrant Investor Visa was created by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS, an agency of the US Department of Homeland Security), as a way for foreign nationals to obtain permanent residence (Green Card). Foreign nationals are required to invest Five hundred thousand dollars (qualifying investment) in a project in a Targeted Employment Area in the United States. The project should create a minimum of 10 full time jobs for United States citizens. The Investor should meet the following criteria:

  • Be in good health (no communicable diseases or serious mental disorder).
  • Must not have a criminal record or negative background of any kind.
  • Must have evidence of a qualifying financial background for at least the last five years.
  • Must have the financial capacity to participate.
  • Must not have any disqualifying U.S. immigration background.

EB-5: The US Investment Visa

The EB-5 Immigrant Investor Visa attracts foreign capital into the US and creates jobs for American workers.

Program Highlights

  • It allows a person and his or her immediate family to obtain a Green Card (live permanently in the US) by making an at-risk investment in an enterprise that creates jobs for qualifying US workers.
  • The minimum amount of investment is $500,000 if you invest in a rural or high unemployment area.
  • The program provides a direct route to a Green Card, and does not require sponsorship or business management experience.
  • Each investment must create a minimum of 10 jobs.
  • Other countries have similar residency by investment programs, but EB-5 is the cheapest.
  • Each investment includes sponsorship of spouse and dependent children under the age of 21.
  • Investors need not take on an active managerial role in the project in which they invest.

EB-5 Investor Advantages

It allows a person and his or her immediate family to obtain a Green Card (live permanently in the US) by investing in an enterprise that creates jobs for qualifying US workers. The minimum amount of money to invest is $500,000 if you invest in a rural or high unemployment area.

For foreign investors seeking the freedom and flexibility to live and work in the US, the EB-5 Visa Program provides an excellent opportunity to obtain Green Cards.

The EB-5 investment visa route to a Green Card avoids the usual requirement of having family connections, securing a job, or running an actively traded business – making it a viable route to retirement.

FASTER PATH TO GREEN CARD

Other visa categories such as H1B have more than 50 year processing time based on country of origin, but EB-5 offers a much faster path.

no sponsor needed

Foreign investors use their own personal funds and do not require sponsorship from either an employer or a family member.

Green card

The EB-5 Visa provides investors with a Green Card thereby allowing foreign investors to live and work in the United States in any capacity.

What is a Regional Center?

An EB-5 Regional Center is an organization designated by the United State Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) that sponsors capital investment projects for investment by EB-5 investors. The major advantage for regional center designation is that the regional center can take advantage of indirect job creation. Regional centers help EB-5 investors and project developers because they lessen the difficulty of meeting qualifying job creation requirements under the EB-5 program rules.

Advantages of a Regional Center

  • The investor is not required to live in the place of investment; rather, the investor can live anywhere in the U.S.
  • The EB-5 Investment Regional Center program is ideal for the retiree or inactive investor.
  • The Regional Center Program removes the direct employee requirement and replaces it with a less restrictive "indirect employment creation," which allows the investor to qualify by proving a combination of 10 direct, indirect, and/or induced jobs.
