EB-5 Visa Investment Options

The EB-5 investment visa program allows someone who invests a minimum amount of money into a US commercial enterprise or regional center to obtain permanent residence (a “green card”) in the United States. The investment must take one of two forms -- (i) a direct investment into an enterprise and (ii) an indirect investment into an approved regional center. Each of these types of investments has its own requirements as well as its own advantages and drawbacks.
