What is EB-5?
In 1990, Congress created the EB-5 visa program to stimulate the U.S. economy through job creation and capital investment by foreign investors.
The EB-5 Visa provides the opportunity for immigrant investors, their spouse, and their unmarried children under the age of 21, to live in the United States by creating or improving a business that will positively impact the local economy. The Regional Center is designed to attract investments from abroad that will stimulate economic growth as well as create new jobs in the United States.
The Regional Center option requires an investment of $500,000 into an area of high unemployment. Typically, LVEIRC will provide passive investment opportunities for the immigrant whereby the EB-5 investor will not be responsible for the day-to-day management of the investment. The community in which a Regional Center project is located will generally benefit from economic stimulation and welcome the investor.
A Major component of EB-5 is job creation. All EB-5 projects must fulfill these job creation requirements create or preserve at least 10 full-time jobs for qualifying U.S. workers within two years of the immigrant investor’s admission to the United States as a Conditional Permanent Resident.
