The EB-5 visa allows for an applicant to migrate permanently to the USA if he/she is prepared to invest one million dollars (or $500,000 in an area considered to be rural or one of high unemployment) in a new business.
The new business must employ at least 10 US citizens or legal residents.
The investor must be employed in the capacity of managing the business entity. However, USA immigration standards have recognized limited partners who in their definition have no managerial responsibilities as also qualifying for this visa category.
This visa is usually issued for a two year period after which time the visa will be made permanent and no longer subject to the investor’s continued involvement in the enterprise.
Up to 10,000 visas per year may be issued in this category.
You may be eligible for a number of different visa categories. Each visa category has different requirements and obligations so that it is best to seek professional advice in order to select the visa most beneficial and suitable to your circumstances.
