Key Components of the EB5 Visa Program
- Minimum Investment: The EB5 Visa requires a minimum investment of $1.8 million in a new or existing U.S. business. However, if the investment is made in a Targeted Employment Area (TEA), the minimum investment is reduced to $900,000.
- Job Creation: Your investment must create at least 10 full-time jobs for U.S. workers within two years of your investment. This requirement is crucial for the success of your EB5 Visa application.
- At-Risk Capital: Your investment must be “at risk” for the duration of your EB5 Visa process, meaning it should be subject to both potential gains and losses.
- Involvement in the Business: As an EB5 investor, you are required to have an active role in the management or policymaking of the business you invest in.
