EB-5 Investors

The EB-5 process provides a method of obtaining a green card for foreign nationals who personally invest their funds in a U.S. entity directly or into one associated with a Regional Center designated by USCIS (U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service).

To obtain the immigrant visa (the green card/permanent residency) the foreign national must personally invest at least USD $1,000,000 which will create at least 10 full time jobs either directly or indirectly.   By investing in certain Regional Centers located in TEA ‘s (Targeted Employment Areas); i.e. areas that are rural or areas of high employment, the required investment is only USD $500,000.00.

A typical foreign investor is highly educated; a successful business executive or entrepreneur, an accredited investor by the standards of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (for Regional Center Investments), and a head of household with a global perspective.

Foreign investors’ motivations to invest through the EB-5 Program include:

  • Conduct and/or expand their business in the United States
  • Educate themselves or their children in the U.S.
  • Diversify their investment portfolios
  • Passively Manage their investments in the Regional Center or Direct Project
  • Reside in the United States and become U.S. Permanent Residents and U.S. Citizens


  • Preparation and Filing of Investor Petitions with USCIS
  • Authentication of Source of Funds
  • Consulate Processing or Adjustment of Status for Conditional Permanent Residency
  • Removal of Conditions to Permanent Residency
  • EB-5 Project Due Diligence Services (Immigration matters only)
  • Compliance and Best Practices
  • Cultural Relocation
