EB-5 Visas (Investment Green Cards)
Immigrants are some of our nationâs most important innovators. In Silicon Valley alone, immigrants began more than 52% of all businesses (Immigration Policy Center 2014).
The only option currently that permits immigrants to obtain a green card exclusively based on investment is the EB-5 visa.Â Among other requirements, the EB-5 visa investor must actively invest $1,000,000 (or $500,000 in certain geographic areas).
Processing times remain long despite the promise of speedy adjudications with centralized processing.Â Once granted, the EB-5 visa permits two years of conditional residence.Â Over the initial two year period, the EB-5 conditional resident must demonstrate that the business enterprise created at least 10 jobs.
