About the EB-5 Visa (Investor Visas)
The EB-5 visa, or investor visa, provides permanent resident status for an investor willing to make a capital investment in a new or existing firm. To qualify the investment must create or save at least ten jobs and, if the firm does business in a “targeted” employment area, the investment may be as low as $800,000. Investing in non-targeted employment areas involves a $1,000,000 investment. The EB-5 visa can eventually lead to permanent residency in the United States though an EB-5 green card.
You do not need to be a high-powered business executive or a specialist in a chosen field to obtain an EB-5 visa. It is available to everyone who has the money to invest. Many EB-5 investors create their own companies and invest in a business that they are passionate about. Once accepted, there are few restrictions on what an EB-5 green card holder can do or live within the United States.
The E-2 and E-1 visas can be similar to the EB-5 visa but with either less initial investment or with a business trade aspect instead of investment. Click here to find out more about the E-2 visa and E-1 visa.
