What is EB-5 Visa Program?
If you are an investor looking for great investment opportunities offering multiple additional benefits, you may want to take a look at the EB-5 program offered by the United States. This program was created by the U.S. Congress in 1990 after the Immigration and Nationality Act was passed. It offers an opportunity to foreign investors to invest in the United States and fast track their application for a U.S. green card and citizenship.
Foreign investors have the option of directly investing either $1.8 million plus the processing overhead cost, legal and filing fees to create 10 direct full-time jobs for Americans, or just $900,000 plus the processing overhead cost, legal and filing fees in a Targeted Employment Area (TEA) through a regional center and create 10 direct or indirect full-time jobs.
This is why the full form of EB-5 Visa is Employment-Based Fifth Preference Visa.
