Immigrant Investor Visa (EB-5) – Green Card
An EB-5 visa allows investors, their spouses, and children to immigrate to the U.S. permanently (obtain green cards). Investors and their families can qualify for EB-5 visa if they invest capital of $1 million in a new commercial enterprise and create employment for at least ten full-time U.S. employees. Investors can also qualify for investor (EB-5) visas if they invest capital of $500,000.00 in a Targeted Employment Area (TEA) and create employment for at least ten full-time U.S. employees. TEA for EB-5 purposes is either a Rural Area or a High Unemployment Area. The Rural Area is an area outside of a metropolitan statistical area and outside of a city of town having a population of 20,000 or more based on the most recent national census. The High Unemployment Area is an area that has experienced unemployment of at least 150% of the national average.
Only 10,000 of EB-5 visas are authorized each year. Of the 10,000 EB-5 visas available annually, 5,000 of them are reserved for investors of Regional Centers. Regional Centers are economic units that promote job creation and investment in a new or failing business enterprise in a specific region of the U.S.
