EB-5 Program

This program was created by Congress in 1990 with the intent of stimulating the US economy by encouraging foreign nationals to invest capital into it. By investing in a business in the US, the EB-5 program enables immigrant investors to get ‘green cards’, that is, permanent residency within the US. To qualify for the program, EB-5 applicants are usually mandated to invest either $800,000 or $1.05 million dollars which is also referred to as the Employment-Based Immigration: Fifth Preference. Within the first two years, 10 fulltime American jobs must be created from the applicant’s investment. EB-5 investors, as well as their spouse and children under 21 who are not married can reside and work in the US permanently once the program has been completed.
