The EB-5 Program
In 1990, congress initiated the EB5 investor green card program for immigrants who sought to invest in or manage companies in the United States.
An EB-5 Visa is critical for foreign nationals who want to invest and, in the process, obtain a green card.
The EB-5 Visa requires individuals to invest $1 million dollars or a minimum of $500,000 in a Targeted Employment Area, which is defined as either a rural area or an area of high unemployment. The result of this investment in a Targeted Employment Area needs to create at least 10 jobs. There are also EB-5 Regional Centers whose goal is to attract investors. After the investment has been made and the proper forms have been filed, investors can receive a conditional green card that is valid for two years. Once 10 jobs have been created, the conditional green card status is removed and the investment is returned to the investor.
The EB-5 Visa process can be complicated and lengthy, but we understand the intricacies you’ll encounter. We have EB-5 Visa experts on staff who will successfully help you navigate the process.
