Overview of EB-5 Investment Program
The EB-5 Investment Program is a U.S. immigration pathway that offers a route to permanent residence (green card) for foreign investors who put money into American companies and employ Americans.
Foreign investors must spend at least $800,000 in a U.S. company that qualifies for the program, which may include a regional center or a new commercial operation. After two years of the investment, there must be at least 10 full-time employment created for Americans.
The EB-5 program provides foreign investors with a number of advantages, including a quicker route to permanent residency compared to other immigration program, the opportunity to live and work anywhere in the United States, and the chance to become a citizen of the United States after a predetermined amount of time.
It is advised that prospective investors seek the advice of an expert EB-5 attorney or consultant because the EB-5 program has strict eligibility requirements and a challenging application procedure.
