Eligibility for the EB-5
The requirements for the EB-5 Fifth Preference are very clear, but you will have to meet all the criteria to be approved.
To qualify, you must:
- Invest or be in the process of investing $1 million of capital (or $500,000 for rural areas) in a U.S. commercial enterprise.
- Engage actively in the day-to-day business operations and participate in policy and procedural activities.
- Prove that your investment will establish at least 10 jobs for U.S. citizens or immigrant workers (excluding yourself) within the two-year conditional period provided to you as part of your EB-5 visa.
Benefits of an EB-5
On an EB-5 visa, you are given two years to live and work in the United States. You are listed as a “conditional resident” until you fulfill your obligations. Once the conditions have been met, you will receive a permanent U.S. green card. Your spouse and children may also be able to join you in the United States.
During your stay, you may attend public and private schools, work within the U.S., and travel outside of the U.S. with few limitations. You may also sponsor close relatives for immigration into the United States.
