What is the EB-5 Visa, How much does it cost and who qualifies?
The EB-5 investors can either invest directly into a new commercial business or they can invest through regional centers. The minimum that an investor can expect to spend is $900,000 in a Targeted Employment Area (TEA). Most investors look to invest in TEA to qualify for the lower minimum investment requirement.
Investors can qualify for the EB-5 visa if they have the investment capital needed and can prove that the funds they are using to invest came from lawful sources. An investor must invest in a project that will create 10 full-time jobs for qualified U.S. workers. If the investor chooses the direct investment program, the jobs created must be directly related to the project. If the investor goes through the regional center program, the jobs created can be indirect or induced jobs.
