Who Qualifies For An EB-5 Visa?

In 1990, under the Immigration Act, Congress established a program to encourage immigrant investment in the U.S. economy. Under this program, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services sets aside EB-5 investor/employment creation visas for up to 10,000 foreign nationals every year.

To qualify for such a visa, applicants must:

  • Invest at least $500,000 in a rural area or an area experiencing high unemployment
  • Invest $1 million or more in other commercial enterprises
  • Create or preserve at least 10 jobs for qualified U.S. workers

If you meet these qualifications, our immigration lawyers can represent you. We guide our clients through the application process, using our extensive experience to advocate for their qualifications. Our attorneys can also help ensure worksite compliance and assist companies in establishing efficient immigration policies.
