What are the requirements for the EB-5 visa?
EB-5 Immigrant Visa is set up for persons who invest either $900,000 in a regional center or $1.8 million in any United Stats industry. It is referred to as “immigrant visa” because you automatically obtain status of Legal Permanent Residence.
We can provide additional information and professional services in order to maximize your investment and assist in the processing for the EB-5 investor.
The EB-5 investor does not have to be physically present in the United States to apply for an EB-5 Visa. Instead, you can apply from your home country and then enter the United States as a permanent resident after your application is approved. Your green card will be issued upon the approval of your EB-5 application. It will be initially valid for two years and then you must file another application to remove its conditional status at least 90 days before it expires.
We can guide you through this process which requires you to demonstrate that your investment meets EB-5 requirements. Upon this demonstrated proof, your Legal Permanent Residence is valid for 10 years.
- Invest minimum of $900,000 in a government-approved regional center; or

What is a regional center?
A Regional Center is an entity, organization or agency that has been approved by the United States government to promote economic activity. This is achieved through increasing U.S. exports and the creation of domestic employment.
What if I am not interested in a regional center?
If you prefer more flexibility, you can invest $1.8 million in any industry located in the United States. You will be able to start a new venture or purchase an existing business.
Regardless of your immigration concern, you can count on our experience and dedication.
