WHAT IS EB-5?

EB-5 is an abbreviation for the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services’ 5th category of Employment Based visas, also known as the Immigrant Investor Program.

The EB-5 Program grants Green Cards to foreign nationals who make an investment that meets certain requirements set forth by the U.S.C.I.S., giving investors and their immediate families the opportunity to LIVE in the United States of America and apply for citizenship after holding a Green Card for only five years.

Regional Center status removes another variable from the EB-5 process. Approved Regional Center projects have already been reviewed by the USCIS and approved for EB-5 investments, so denial of the visa only occurs if the funds cannot be verified as being from a legal source or if the applicant is a criminal or terrorist.
