Investor Visas offer you an opportunity to invest and live in the United States. Depending on the amount and terms of investment, you may qualify for a non-immigrant or immigrant (residency) visa.
EB-5 Immigrant Investor
The EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program is administered by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service. It was created by Congress in 1990 to stimulate the U.S. economy through job creation and capital investment by foreign investors. Under a pilot immigration program first enacted in 1992 and regularly reauthorized since, certain EB-5 visas are also set aside for investors in Regional Centers designated by USCIS based on proposals for promoting economic growth.
EB-5 investors must invest in a new commercial enterprise, create or preserve at least 10 full-time jobs for qualifying U.S. workers within two years (or under certain circumstances, within a reasonable time after the two-year period) of the immigrant investor’s admission to the United States as a Conditional Permanent Resident and an investment of $1 million or $500,000 if the investment is in a Targeted Employment Area (High Unemployment or Rural Area).
E-2 Treaty Investor Visa
The E-2 non-immigrant treaty investor visa allows a national of a treaty country to be admitted to the United States when investing a substantial amount of capital in a U.S. business. Certain employees of such a person or of a qualifying organization may also be eligible for this classification.
