What Is the EB-5 Visa?

The EB-5 visa is for foreign investors who wish to make a significant investment in the United States in order to receive permanent residency for themselves, their spouses, and unmarried children under the age of 21. There are different requirements and forms depending on where you choose to invest your money.

Navigating the process of investing in a business and applying for the EB-5 visa is complicated. Having a lawyer who is experienced and trustworthy may improve your application experience and help you achieve your goal of becoming a permanent resident of the United States.

Who Qualifies for an EB-5 Investor Visa?

Every fiscal year (October 1st – September 30th), approximately 140,000 employment-based immigrant visas are made available to qualified applicants under the provisions of U.S. immigration law. Employment-based immigrant visas are divided into five preference categories.

This page explains the visa application process for Employment Fifth Preference (E5) Immigrant Investors, also called Immigrant Entrepreneurs. Select Employment-Based Immigrant Visas for additional employment-based immigrant visa categories. U.S. immigration law makes visas available to immigrant investors seeking to enter the United States to engage in new commercial enterprises to benefit the U.S. economy through job creation and capital investment. E5 investors receive up to 7.1 percent of all employment-based immigrant visas issued worldwide each year.

To qualify as an immigrant investor, a foreign national must invest, without borrowing, the following minimum qualifying capital dollar amounts in a qualifying commercial enterprise:

  • $1,000,000 US; or
  • $500,000 US in a high-unemployment or rural area, considered a targeted employment area.

A qualifying investment must, within two years, create full-time jobs for at least 10 U.S. citizens, lawful permanent residents, or other immigrants authorized to work in the United States, not including the investor and the investor’s spouse, sons, or daughters.

Immigrant investor visa categories:

  • Employment creation outside a targeted area – C5
  • Employment creation in a targeted rural/high-unemployment area – T5
  • Investor Pilot Program not in a targeted area – R5
  • Investor Pilot Program in a targeted area – I5

EB-5 Visa Requirements

To qualify for an EB-5 visa, you must invest either $1,000,000 (U.S.) or $500,000 (U.S.) in a high-unemployment or rural area (considered a targeted employment area) in a qualifying commercial enterprise.

Your investment must create full-time jobs within two years for at least 10 individuals. These employees may be U.S. citizens, lawful permanent residents, or other immigrants authorized to work in the United States, but not the investor, the investor’s spouse, sons, or daughters.
