EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program
Under section 203(b)(5) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), 10,000 immigrant visas per year are available to qualified individuals seeking to obtain permanent residence in the U.S. on the basis of their investment in a U.S. business. Permanent resident status under the EB-5 category is available to an investor either alone or coming with a spouse and unmarried children under the age of twenty-one (21).
If an investor’s EB-5 petition is approved, the investor and dependents may apply for two-year conditional resident status. During the conditional period, the investor must continue to satisfy all EB-5 requirements in order to qualify for a removal of conditions. Permanent resident status is granted to the investor and dependents only if the petition to remove conditions is approved.
EB-5 Regional Center Program
Of the 10,000 EB-5 visas available annually, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) sets aside 3,000 for those who apply under a pilot program involving a USCIS-designated “Regional Center.” A Regional Center is designation of an entity, organization, or agency as such by the USCIS that focuses on a specific geographic area within the U.S. and seeks to promote its economic growth through increased export sales, improved regional productivity, creation of new jobs, or increased domestic capital investment.
