US EB-5 (Immigrant Investor Visa)
This program is known as EB-5 for the name of the employment-based fifth preference visa that participants receive.
Congress created the EB-5 Program in 1990 to stimulate the U.S. economy through job creation and capital investment by foreign investors. In 1992, Congress created the Immigrant Investor Program, also known as the Regional Center Program. This sets aside EB-5 visas for participants who invest in commercial enterprises associated with regional centers approved by USCIS based on proposals for promoting economic growth.
This visa allows immigrants to enter the U.S. by substantial investment and creation of jobs for U.S. workers. EB-5 investors must invest in a new commercial enterprise or invest in a pre-approved Regional Center. Commercial Enterprise means any for-profit activity formed for the ongoing conduct of lawful business. Issued with a Green Card, immigrants will be provided a Permanent Residency, his or her spouse and any dependents under the age of 21.
This program is tailored to high worth clients, who are comfortable with the program’s active investment plan and the level or risk it entails. An investment of between $ 500,000-$ 1,000,000 is required for this category.
