  • Having a residence permit, the children or spouse of the investor can study at a university or look for a job in the United States
  • There are no requirements for the applicant with regard to education, work experience, age, or even knowledge of English

What are the requirements of a EB-5 visa?

  • The applicant should invest from $800,000 up to $1.05 million in a U.S. enterprise
  • Source of funds must be proven in a document form, usually prepared with the help of an immigration attorney

Two types of EB-5 investments

  1. Direct investment.The applicant prepares a business plan for a new commercial project in the United States. Acting in the role of general manager, the investor must manage all the operations of his enterprise himself, be engaged in the selection of personnel and the preparation of financial statements.
  2. Investment through a regional center. A regional center is a USCIS-approved organization that cooperates with an existing business in the United States. By investing in a regional center, the investor can avoid risks in setting up his or her own business and transfer responsibility to a trusted third party.
