In 1990, under section 203(b) (5) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), 8 U.S.C. Â§ 1153(ban ) (5), Congress created the fifth employment-based preference (EB-5) immigrant visa category for qualified foreign investors seeking to invest in a business that benefits the U.S. economy by creating or preserving at least 10 full-time jobs. Thus, the EB-5 Program was born. The initial amount required for foreigners to invest is $1.8 million. However, if an investment is in a targeted employment area (TEA) the investment amount is reduced by half to $900,000 dollars.
Thank you for requesting a meeting with Houston EB5. We advise clients that are evaluating investments that lead to U.S. residency such as the EB-5 Program, the renewable E-2 investor visa, or EB-5 Plus (our unique product employing both EB-5 and E-2).
Currently, the minimum investment amount for an EB-5 visa is $900,000 plus associated costs. By requesting this meeting, you are confirming you are an accredited investor, having more than one million USD (or currency equivalent) of investable capital.
