Once the applicant establishes that the investment of $1,0500,000 was made in the selected project and the 10 full-time jobs were created within the required period (or will be created within a reasonable time period), the condition attached to the visa is removed and the applicant and family receive permanent resident status in the United States.

Definition of an EB-5 Visa Qualified Investment

EB-5 is the U.S. Immigrant Investor Program that allows entrepreneurs and their spouses and unmarried children under 21 to be eligible to apply for a green card (permanent residence) if they make the necessary investment in a commercial enterprise in the U.S. The permanent residency opens the path to citizenship.

“Congress created the EB-5 Program in 1990 to stimulate the U.S. economy through job creation and capital investment by foreign investors.

This sets aside EB-5 visas for participants who invest in commercial enterprises associated with regional centers approved by USCIS based on proposals for promoting economic growth.”
