EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program: Direct Investment

The EB-5 Regional Center Program began in the early 1990s to spur economic growth by giving immigrants a way to obtain permanent U.S. residency through job creation. Administered by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the EB-5 program directs foreign investment into projects that revitalize local economies. Investors whose money creates at least 10 full-time jobs for U.S. workers become eligible for a U.S. green card.

While most EB-5 projects are accomplished through regional centers, investors have the option to bypass that structure with direct investment. This is especially good for investors who wish to retain control over the business in which they are investing. However, the minimum amount is $1 million dollars, much higher than with the regional centers. Direct investment requires a strong business plan and demonstrated proof of ability to create jobs.
