More information on all requirements for the EB-5 Visa program for investors.
For example, an EB-5 investor must clearly document that the required funds ($500K plus $50K Administration Fee) are from a lawful source. See all requirements here.
The EB-5 Investor Visa Program provides an opportunity for qualified immigrant investors and their immediate families (children up to the age of 21) to obtain U.S. green cards and permanent residency through a one-time investment of $500,000 USD into a new U.S. business that creates 10 or more American jobs.
The EB-5 program has experienced explosive growth since 2009, due to the its long-established guidelines and high individual approval rates.

The EB-5 Program has lapsed. The US Congress is discussing the legislation that authorizes the program while USCIS reviews the regulations and policies for filing. Because of the recent court ruling that reversed the 2019 Modernization regulations, the investment level has shifted temporarily from $900,000 back to $500,000.
If the program is reauthorized before the regulations are updated, there may be another window of opportunity to file at $500,000.
LCR expects the program to be reauthorized in February 2022, and continues to work with international families that want to explore alternative residency options.
