USA Residency Program
The Immigrant Investor Program, commonly known as “EB-5”, was created by Congress in 1990 under 203(b)(5) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) to stimulate the U.S. economy through job creation and capital investment by alien investors. Alien investors have the opportunity to obtain lawful permanent residence in the United States for themselves, their spouses, and their minor unmarried children by making a certain level of capital investments and associated job creation or preservation.
The EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program
There are two distinct EB-5 pathways for an alien investor to gain lawful permanent residence; the Basic Program and the Regional Center Pilot Program.
Both programs require that the alien investor make a capital investment of either $500,000 or $1,000,000, (depending on whether the investment is in a Targeted Employment Area (TEA) or not), in a new commercial enterprise located within the United States. The new commercial enterprise must create or preserve 10 full-time jobs for qualifying U.S. workers within two years of the alien investor’s admission to the United States as a Conditional Permanent Resident (CPR).
