The employment-based immigration fifth preference (EB-5) visa program authorizes up to 10,000 green cards (U.S. permanent residence visas) per year for foreign individuals who make a qualifying job-creating investment. The investment amount is currently $500,000 for investments in Targeted Employment Areas (TEA) and $1,000,000 elsewhere.
Because the program’s objective is job creation, projects that stimulate a large volume of jobs are a natural fit for EB-5 investments.
Baker Tilly Capital works closely with investors, regional centers, developers, intermediaries, and migration agents to identify investment opportunities, source investors, and facilitate transactions. We provide services throughout the lifecycle of the EB-5 deal, including:
