What is the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program?

The EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program is a way for foreign investors to immigrate to the United States and receive a green card while stimulating the U.S. economy. Created in 1990 with the Immigration Act, the main purpose of the program is to create new domestic jobs through foreign investment.


What are the requirements of the EB-5 Program?

There are 6 main requirements for the Program:
  1. The investor must produce $1 million in capital to invest in a new commercial enterprise. The investment amount is lowered to $500,000 for a Regional Center or rural area.

  2. The investor’s capital investment must be lawful and “at risk.” Lawful means that the investor is required to prove their capital is from a lawful source. “At Risk” means that the investor is not guaranteed a return.

  3. The new commercial enterprise must be established after November 29th, 1990. If an investor restructures or reorganizes a business so that it constitutes a new commercial enterprise or increases the net worth of the business or number of employees by 40%, the business can have been established on or before November 29th, 1990.

  4. For a new commercial enterprise, there must be at least 10 permanent full-time positions for U.S. citizens created that are directly related to the enterprise. For a Regional Center, the jobs can be indirectly related.

  5. The investor must have some type of direct role in the operation of the new commercial enterprise. Role examples include, the day-to-day running of the business or monthly reviewing of the financial books.

  6. The new commercial enterprise or Regional Center must be in operation for 2 years before the investor can apply for a permanent green card.
