EB-5 Immigrant Investor Programme

The EB-5 immigrant investor programme offers foreign nationals the opportunity to live permanently in the United States of America by investing in business that creates economic growth and employment in the country. The EB-5 visa process allows investors to stay in the USA for two years with an EB-5 Visa on a conditional Green Card. Investors have the right to live, study and work freely in the USA. Children enjoy the same educational and employment opportunities as other American citizens. 


Investment Value

The main requirement for the EB-5 Visa is to make a minimum investment amount of $800,000 USD in a New Business Commercial Enterprise and employ at least 10 American workers full-time. This investment can be made through a Regional Centre.  

A regional centre is a public or private economic unit approved by the USCIS to promote economic growth in the country. 

The Regional Centre is responsible for investment projects in Targeted Employment Areas (TEA), which are rural areas where there are low levels of employment. The investment must create either direct or indirect jobs.
