Individuals Investing in the U.S. Economy
Every year, 10,000 investors are given EB-5 green cards. Investors must invest between $500,000 to $1,000,000 in a U.S. business. The U.S. government does not require that the investor control the business, however, the individual must play an active role in it.
- While there is a limit of 10,000 per year, this number has only recently been reached
- As long as you are actively investing, you do not need to have any official business training
- Once your green card has been granted, you do not need to continue to work for the company
- Your spouse and your unmarried children under the age of 21 also get green cards
