The EB-5 visa requires a $500,000 (or $1 million in certain areas) investment in a U.S. business that creates at least ten (10) jobs for U.S. citizens or green card holders in the first two (2) years.
Investors may either start their own businesses as active investors, or invest in a designated Regional Center as passive investors.
Investors initially receive a two-year “conditional green card” that converts to a “permanent green card” after the job figures are presented.
