EB-5 Attorney, Van Nuys
EB5 Investment Visa
Congress grants 10,000 immigration visas each year to eligible foreign investors in exchange for their capital investments in start-up businesses. With this Employment Based Fifth Preference Category (EB-5) visa, the United States Citizenship, and Immigration Services (USCIS) has made its doors open to qualified investors depending on the type, purpose, and amount of capital they are willing to provide in an effort to boost economic activity and promote job growth.
A successful application in one category needs proof of a $1 million qualifying investment made by an individual in a new, commercial firm in the United States, as well as proof that the investment has led to the creation of at least 10 jobs and other significant growth.

EB-5 investment funds must abide by all applicable US securities and anti-fraud laws and regulations, just like any other type of investment vehicle. Investments made through the EB-5 program in the United States must be “at risk” in the same manner that stock or equity fund investments have inherent risk. There is no assurance of monetary gain.
After receiving work authorization or becoming a conditional permanent resident, an EB-5 investor is qualified to work for any US employer. Investors who make investments through a regional center are not required to work there. The employment of investors or their dependents by the EB-5 company in which they have invested may not meet the requirements for job creation.
According to USCIS processing estimates, the processing period for I-526 Immigrant petitions for EB-5 visas ranges from 29.5 to 61 months as of December 2022. For investors already residing in the USA, I-485, depending on the service center, the processing time for a USA investment Green Card application to Adjust Status ranges from 7 to 29 months.
You have the choice to make a direct investment by starting a “for-profit” business in the US if you apply for an EB-5 visa.
Unfortunately, on the EB-5 petition, parents are not listed as dependents. You may name your spouse and any minor children who are not married as petitioners. If you are under 21, you may apply as a dependent along with your parents.
