US EB-5 Program For Permanent Green Card

Investment and employment creation in the US economy can lead to a Green Card.

What is the US EB-5 Program:

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services administers the Immigrant Investor Program, also known as “EB-5,” created by Congress to stimulate the U.S. economy through job creation and capital investment by foreign investors.

Under a pilot immigration program first enacted in 1992 and regularly pre-authorized since certain EB-5 visas also are set aside for investors in Regional Centers designated by USCIS based on proposals for promoting economic growth. Each year, 10,000 EB-5 immigration visas are available. 3,000 EB-5 visas were set available for investors in Regional Centers approved by USCIS based on ideas for supporting economic growth in 1992, and have been reauthorized on a regular basis since then.

The Basic Program and the Regional Center Pilot Program are two unique EB-5 avenues for immigrant investors to obtain lawful permanent residence for themselves and their immediate family. Both programs require the immigrant to make a $500,000 or $1,000,000 capital investment in a new commercial venture in the United States (depending on whether the investment is in a Targeted Employment Area [TEA] or not). According to the law, TEA is defined as “a rural region or a region where unemployment is at least 150 percent of the national average.”

Within two years (or, in some cases, within a reasonable time beyond the two-year term) following the immigrant investor’s admission to the United States as a Conditional Permanent Resident, the new commercial firm must generate or preserve 10 full-time positions for qualified U.S. employees (CPR).

What are the requirements for US EB-5 Program?

Several modifications to the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program went into effect Nov. 21, 2019, as a result of a new regulation released by the US Department of Homeland Security.

The new regulation brings the EB-5 programme up to date by:

  • Allowing certain EB-5 investors to keep their priority dates
  • To accommodate for inflation, the necessary minimum investment amounts will be increased.
  • Certain targeted employment areas (TEA) are being reformed.
  • Making additional technical and conforming modifications.
  • Clarifying USCIS procedures for the removal of conditions on permanent residency.
