EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program

The United States Congress created the employment-based immigration fifth preference (EB-5) visa category in 1990 for qualified foreigners seeking to invest in a business that will benefit the US economy and create or save jobs for US workers. The EB-5 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 program is administered by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and gives investors an opportunity to rapidly obtain a green card in exchange for making a qualifying, job-creating investment in the US. The investment amount is currently $900,000 for investments in certain specially designated zones and $1,800,000 elsewhere.
