The EB-5 Investment Visa, Permanent Residence in the USA

What is the EB5 Visa and how can it help me?

For foreign investors seeking the freedom and flexibility to live and work in the United States, the EB5 Visa Program provides an excellent opportunity to obtain USA Green Cards for yourself and immediate family.

A Green Card via the EB5 Visa provides Permanent Residency in the US for the applicant, his or her spouse and any children under the age of 21. The EB5 investment visa route to a green card avoids the usual requirement of having family connections, securing a job or running an actively trading business which makes it a viable route to retirement.

There are 10,000 visas made available each year to the EB5 visa category, this quota is yet to be reached although with the recent popularity of this visa, this may be subject to change in the near future.

How much do I have to invest for the visa?

The required investment amount under the EB5 visa is $1,000,000 USD however this amount is halved to $500,000 USD if the investment is made in a rural area or in an urban area with a high unemployment known as a targeted employment area. If this area is also within what is known as a Regional Center, then indirect and induced jobs may be counted also; this is currently the most popular option however due to processing delays, cases of fraud and temporary status of the program, many investors are now considering the Direct EB5 Investment alternative.

Where do I start?

This is a common question, why not start off by seeing if you are admissible to the United States?
