The EB-5 Investor Visa gives permanent residence to aliens who invest $500,000 to $1 million USD in a new U.S. commercial enterprise that creates 10 or more full-time jobs for U.S. workers. In order to qualify for the EB-5 investor visa category, foreign investors must:
- Establish a new commercial enterprise
- Invest $500,000 to $1,000,000 U.S. Dollars
- Lawfully obtain capital
- Create 10 full-time jobs for U.S. workers
- Actively manage the enterprise as the foreign investor
Foreign Investors initially receive “conditional permanent residence.” After two years, the investor must show that all requirements have been met before petitioning for full permanent residence.
