EB-5 Immigrant Investor Visas

Business Visas

In 1990, the United States Congress created the Immigrant Investor Program (EB-5) to stimulate the nation's economy. EB-5 visas are employment-based visas that allow foreign investors to enter the country to invest in a "new commercial enterprise," which is defined by the United States Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) as "a for-profit activity formed for the ongoing conduct of lawful business." Examples include the following business types:

  • Sole proprietorship
  • Partnership
  • Holding company
  • Joint venture
  • Corporation
  • Business trust or other entity (publicly or privately owned)

Qualifications for an EB-5 Visa

In order for a foreign investor to be granted an EB-5 visa, they must meet the criteria above and also meet certain job-creation requirements. The foreign investor must create or preserve at least 10 full-time jobs for qualifying U.S. workers within 2 years, as well as create or preserve direct or indirect jobs. The foreign investor must also invest a minimum of $1 million, or $500,000 if the venture or business is within a high-unemployment or rural area of the United States. EB-5 visas are some of the most complex employment visas available.
