The EB-5 visa is a type of immigrant visa available to foreign investors who are interested in investing in the United States and obtaining a green card. To qualify for an EB-5 visa, you must meet the following requirements:
1. Make an investment in a new commercial enterprise: You must invest at least $1.8 million (or $900,000 if the investment is made in a targeted employment area) in a new commercial enterprise in the United States.
2. Create or preserve at least 10 full-time jobs: Your investment must result in the creation or preservation of at least 10 full-time jobs for qualified U.S. workers.
3. Meet the definition of a “qualified alien investor”: You must be a foreign national who has invested, or is actively in the process of investing, the required amount of capital in a new commercial enterprise in the United States. If you meet these requirements, you can apply for an EB-5 visa by filing a petition with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
