The EB-5 Investment Program
While the immigration process is often used to keep families together and bring skilled workers into the country, it can also be used to introduce new investment opportunities into the economy. The EB-5 program allows immigrants to buy a visa.
Under this program, as an investment entrepreneur, you (and your spouse and unmarried children under the age of 21) may be eligible for a visa if:
- You invest $1,000,000 in a commercial U.S. business ($500,000 if the business is in an area needing economic growth)
- You create at least 10 full-time jobs for U.S. workers
You may be in the process of investing or have already invested in a new business, one that is restructured, or you may be expanding a current business. You must also demonstrate that you will take an active part in the business, though it is not required that you control it. The business may be located anywhere in the U.S. and you must maintain your investment and participation in it for a minimum of three years. Generally, you are not restricted as to your source of investment funds as long as they have been legally obtained.
EB-5 green cards are limited by the U.S. government to 10,000 per year with 3,000 of those set aside for investment in economically-disadvantaged areas.
