One of the requirements for the EB-5 visa is that the minimum qualifying investment in the U.S. is $1 million. Another requirement is that this commercial enterprise must create and preserve at least 10 full-time jobs for qualifying U.S. workers within a two year time period. During this two year period the immigrant investor is admitted to this country as a Conditional Permanent Resident.

If the area where the business is to be established is considered a high unemployment or rural area in the United States, then the minimum qualifying investment is $500,000. A rural area is outside a metropolitan area where the population is 20,000 or more.

The purpose of the EB-5 and other investor visas is to give foreign nationals investment opportunities in the United States, at the same time producing employment to U.S. nationals and permanent residents.

The attorney must either speak a language you understand or have a competent interpreter that will allow you to understand what the attorney is saying. If you cannot communicate with the attorney they will not be able to provide you safe advice. Never hire an attorney that you have not spoken with.
