EB-5 Immigrant Investor Visa Program – USA

Program Overview

USCIS administers the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program (Employment Based, 5th Category) , which was created by Congress in 1990 to stimulate the U.S. economy through job creation and capital investment by foreign investors. The EB-5 visa program is operated by United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), a division of the Department of Homeland Security, and enables foreigners who make an investment in a U.S. business to obtain a green card and become lawful permanent residents. The goals of the program are to spur economic growth and to promote job creation, in particular in undercapitalized areas.

To obtain an EB-5 Visa, individuals must invest $1,050,000 (or $800,000 if the investment is made in a project located within a Targeted Employment Area) in a job-creating enterprise that is creating or preserving at least 10 jobs for U.S. workers. EB-5 Investments may be made directly into a project or through a Regional Center.

Under a program investors may qualify for EB-5 classification by investing through regional centers designated by USCIS based on proposals for promoting economic growth. EB-5 Regional Centers are organizations authorized by USCIS to receive and manage EB-5 investor funds.

On March 15, 2022, President Biden signed the EB-5 Reform and Integrity Act as part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2022 (Public Law 117-103), which created new requirements for the EB-5 immigrant visa category and the Regional Center Program. The new program offers improvements for investors that make it more attractive than ever and provides a long-term authorization to the program through Sept. 30, 2027.
