How much do I have to invest to secure an EB-5 investment immigration visa?

How much money you are required to invest during the EB-5 immigration visa process depends on which type of investment you plan to make: direct investment or a regional center investment. Let’s take a closer look at both options: 

  • To make a direct investment, you must invest $1 million. An EB-5 direct investment must go toward a new enterprise in a rural area or an area with a high unemployment rate. A direct investment requires the investor to create at least ten new full-time jobs and to be engaged in the day-to-day management of the business. 
  • To make a regional center investment, you must invest $500,000. This second type of investment must go toward a regional center that has already been approved by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services. These centers must also promote job growth (at least indirectly) and improve the economy. 

Which type of investment is right for you and your family?

EB-5 Regional Center Program Ends 12/08/17

Congress has extended the current Regional Center program to December 8th, 2017, at which time it will sunset unless extended. We anticipate future legislation that will call for an increased investment amount and more stringent requirements. For this reason, we recommend to our clients that they take action under the current law if at all possible.
