The EB-5 process provides a method of obtaining a green card for foreign nationals who personally invest their funds in a U.S. entity directly, or into one associated with a Regional Center designated by USCIS (U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service).
To obtain the immigrant visa (the green card/permanent residency), the foreign national must personally invest at least USD $1,000,000 which will create at least 10 full time jobs either directly or indirectly. By investing in certain Regional Centers located in TEA ‘s (Targeted Employment Areas), i.e., areas that are rural or areas of high employment, the required investment is only USD $500,000.00. A typical foreign investor is highly educated, a successful business executive or entrepreneur, an accredited investor by the standards of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (for Regional Center Investments), and a head of household with a global perspective.
