The EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program: Your Path to U.S. Permanent Residence

By January 4, 2024March 22nd, 2024No Comments

The EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program, administered by USCIS, offers a unique opportunity for investors and their families to obtain lawful permanent residence in the United States, ultimately becoming Green Card holders. Here’s what you need to know about this program:

Eligibility Criteria:

To qualify for the EB-5 Program, you must meet two main requirements:

1. Investment in a U.S. Commercial Enterprise: You must make a substantial investment in a qualifying commercial enterprise within the United States.

2. Job Creation: Your investment must lead to the creation or preservation of at least 10 permanent full-time jobs for qualified U.S. workers.

This program is aptly named EB-5, after the employment-based fifth preference visa granted to participants.

Stimulating the U.S. Economy:

Established in 1990 by Congress, the EB-5 Program aims to invigorate the U.S. economy by encouraging job creation and foreign capital investment. In 1992, the Immigrant Investor Program, also known as the Regional Center Program, was introduced. It reserves EB-5 visas for investors who contribute to commercial enterprises affiliated with USCIS-approved regional centers, designed to promote economic growth.

Embark on your journey towards U.S. permanent residence through the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program.
