Requirements for EB-5 Visa

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.

To ensure that you are eligible for an investor visa, be sure to speak with an immigration lawyer near you who is experienced in this area of law. Working with an attorney will reduce the chances of a delay in application.

The Challenges of the EB-5

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.

History of the EB-5 Visa

Also known as the Immigrant Investor Program, the EB 5 was created by Congress in 1990 to help grow American businesses. It allows non-nationals to stay in the US if they are investing in a US commercial (for profit) business and therefore helping to create jobs and grow the economy.
