EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program
US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) administered EB-5 Program allows entrepreneurs and their spouses & unmarried children under twenty one years to apply for Green Card (permanent residence) if they make the necessary investment in a commercial enterprise in US and plan to create or preserve 10 permanent full time jobs for qualified US workers. These jobs could be direct or indirect.
The minimum qualifying investment required is US Dollars One Million, which is reduced to US Dollars Five Hundred Thousand if invested in High Employment or Rural Areas, through Approved Regional Centres. The investment cannot be borrowed and evidence needs to be produced to ensure that it is not acquired through unlawful means.
The application process requires filing of Form I-526 , Petition by Alien Entrepreneur.
The EB-5 visa allows the applicant and its family, conditional permanent residence for a two year period.
Ninety days before the completion of the two years period, Form I-829 , Petition by Entrepreneur to Remove Conditions, need to be filed. Once USCIS approves this petition, the conditions will be removed from the EB-5 applicants status and the EB-5 investor and its family members will be allowed to live & work in US permanently as a Green Card holder.
