EB-5 Visa Investment Program

United States Customs and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) administers the Immigrant Investor Program, also known as “EB-5,” created by Congress in 1990 to stimulate the U.S. economy through job creation and capital investment by foreign investors.

The EB-5 visa provides a method of obtaining a green card for foreign nationals who invest money in the United States. To obtain the visa, individuals must invest $1,000,000 (or at least $500,000 in a “Targeted Employment Area” – high unemployment or rural area), creating or preserving at least 10 jobs for U.S. workers excluding the investor and their immediate family.

If the foreign national investor’s petition is approved, the investor and their dependents will be granted conditional permanent residence valid for two years. Within the 90 day period before the conditional permanent residence expires, the investor must submit evidence documenting that the full required investment has been made and that 10 jobs have been maintained, or 10 jobs have been created or will be created within a reasonable time period.

The USCIS EB-5 Regional Center

The EB-5 Regional Center program regulated by USCIS, and facilitates investment in job-creating economic development projects by pooling capital raised under the EB-5 immigrant investor program.

A Regional Center uses economic models, including those developed by the U.S. Department of Commerce, to demonstrate that job creation targets required by law are achieved. We identify investment opportunities that will create jobs in local communities, often in partnership with economic development agencies.
