An EB-5 visa requires a minimum investment of $900,000 or $1.8 million. Once invested, the investor’s capital must remain fully invested and at risk while he or she is in the immigration process with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). In the event that the business enterprise using the EB-5 capital repays early following a sale or refinance, the funds must be redeployed into another eligible investment. USCIS has issued stringent guidelines regarding redeployment and applies considerable scrutiny during the adjudication process, so it is imperative that EB-5 fund managers and regional centers understand and adhere to the rules.
“The EB-5 visa is a very good option for foreign nationals seeking U.S. residency. If the investment is chosen carefully, it is a certain path to a green card. In some cases, project sponsors sell early or cash out the lenders and equityholders, creating an urgent situation for EB-5 investors. Redeployment must be done properly to ensure all investors can successfully complete the immigration process.” said Sam Silverman, managing partner of EB5AN.
Created by the U.S. Congress in 1990, the EB-5 program provides a clear pathway to permanent residency and citizenship. Tens of thousands of families from nearly every country have successfully immigrated by making qualifying investments in U.S. projects and business enterprises. The EB-5 visa is popular among people currently living abroad as well as those already working in the U.S. on nonimmigrant visas.
