EB-5 Investor Visa Requirements

One of the ways that an investor can qualify for a U.S. immigration visa is through the EB-5 investor visa. The process involves a high-net-worth individual investing in a new commercial enterprise.

A commercial enterprise involves any for-profit activity formed to conduct an ongoing lawful business.

A commercial enterprise can be a:

  • Partnership
  • Sole proprietorship
  • Joint venture
  • Holding company
  • Corporation
  • Business trust

Generally, the minimum investment required is $1 million. This minimum requirement is reduced to $500,000 for businesses in rural areas or areas that have an unemployment rate of at least 150% of the national average. Once the business is established, the investor is also required to create and maintain at least 10 full-time positions for qualified employees. To be considered full-time, the position must be at least 35 hours a week. Qualified employees include U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents.

A qualified employee may also be any other immigrant who is authorized to work in the U.S., including but not limited to:

  • A refugee
  • An asylee
  • A temporary resident
  • A conditional resident
  • An individual residing in the U.S. under suspension of deportation
