What Are the Requirements for EB-5 Investors?
Investors must invest in a new commercial enterprise in order to qualify for the EB-5 visa. A commercial enterprise is defined as a profit-based entity that is formed to facilitate the conduct of ongoing legal business.
This could take form as a:
- Business trust
- Sole proprietorship
- Joint venture
- Holding company
- Or other publicly or privately owned entity
In order to qualify for an EB-5 visa, you must:
- Invest the required amount of capital in a new commercial enterprise
- Invest in an enterprise that employs at least 10 U.S. full-time employees
Investors may face additional requirements and exceptions depending on whether their new enterprise is created within a regional center, outside of a regional center, or is a troubled business.
How Long Does It Take To Get an Investor Visa?
It typically takes six months or more to obtain an investor visa, but processing time varies from case-to-case.
Delays may occur if applications are not correctly filled out, that’s why it is important to have a skilled EB-5 Investor Visa attorney from Panteva Law Group to help guide you.
