What is the EB5 Visa?
The EB5 or EB-5 visa is an employment-based visa in the fifth-preference category. It is also known as the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Visa Program or Immigrant Investor Program. The sole purpose of this visa program is to create jobs and economic growth.
With the EB5 visa, investors (and their spouses or unmarried children under the age of 21) may be eligible to apply for a green card if they qualify.
Requirements for EB-5 Visa
There are a variety of things you have to establish in order to qualify for the EB 5, which is why is good to have an immigration attorney who can help to get you where you need to be, if you aren't there already. You need to be able to meet the job creation requirements and/or the capital investments requirements. Both sets of requirements are extensive and not having someone to guide you can make it an uphill battle.
Minimum Investment in Specific U.S. Business
Those applying for an EB-5 visa must invest a significant amount of money into a U.S. business and must have an active role in the business. As of June 2021, the minimum investment for an EB-5 investor visa is $500,000/$1 million. The minimum amounts are adjusted adjusted for inflation every 5 years.
The applicant must invest in a new commercial enterprise or in a regional center. This includes corporations, a variety of partnerships, business trusts, or other private or publicly owned business structures. To ensure you qualify, reach out to a skilled investor visa attorney.
Creation of New Jobs
Your application for the EB-5 investor visa must also result in the creation of 10 full-time jobs for workers in the United States. These jobs must be created within 2 years after the investor has received conditional permanent residency.
