The EB-5 Visa provides a method of obtaining a Green Card for foreign nationals who invest money in the United States. To obtain the visa, individuals must invest at least $500,000 USD, creating at least 10 jobs. By investing in certain qualified investments or regional centers with high unemployment rates, the required investment amount is $500,000.
The Immigrant Investor Pilot Program was created by Section 610 of Public Law 102-395 on October 6, 1992. This was in accordance to a Congressional mandate aimed at stimulating economic activity and job growth, while allowing eligible aliens the opportunity to become lawful permanent residents. This “Pilot Program” required only $500,000 of investment in exchange for permanent resident status. The investment could only be received by an economic unit defined as a Regional Center.
We can help you select the appropriate regional center and complete the investment process to qualify for this visa. We will work with the regional center to complete the application package for permanent residency. We will follow up with your application to make sure your petition is approved within the processing timeframe. If USCIS requests for additional evidence or documents, we can also help you prepare a complete package to respond to their request.
The waiting time required for the application to this visa to be approved varies. However, it usually takes from 6-12 months
