The EB-5 visa helps you to acquire a green card (permanent residency) by investing in a U.S. company. United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is in charge of the EB-5 visa scheme.
International investors must make an “at-risk” capital investment in a for-profit U.S. business enterprise to satisfy EB-5 investor visa requirements. Depending on the geographical position of the project you invest in, a minimum investment of $900,000 or $1.8 million is needed.
The minimum required investment in a targeted employment area (TEA) is $900,000, while the minimum required investment elsewhere is $1.8 million. EB-5 investments would result in the development of 10 full-time jobs in the United States that will last at least two years.
The United States Congress developed the program in 1990 to promote increased investment in the US economy. The investment could result in the investor receiving a green card, allowing them to live and work permanently in the United States with their spouse and unmarried children under the age of 21. Following that, you and your dependents will be entitled to apply for citizenship which we can help you with.
Although each application is unique, the EB-5 visa process will usually be completed in less than a year in the vast majority of cases. This is one of the key advantages of this visa option for those who want to live and work in the United States.
