The EB-5 Visa overview

The EB-5 Visa was introduced in 1990 by the Immigration Act as an opportunity for the foreign investors to commit a minimum of $500,000 in exchange for a green card.

The investment is used to support the projects focusing on economic development in low-income areas. It must also create or sustain at least 10 jobs. Once granted, the Visa covers an entire family, including spouse and children.

According to the U.S. Commerce Department, the program has generated $5.8 billion in foreign investment and has created more than 174,000 jobs since its inception. It has already supported 562 large economic development projects, with little or no cost to the US taxpayer.

For a foreign investor, it is an opportunity to gain the US Citizenship after a minimum of 5 years of residency in the country. There are no requirements regarding business experience, skills nor education.
