What is EB-5 program?
EB-5 program stands for Employment Base Fifth, created by Congress in 1990 to stimulate the U.S. economy through job creation and capital investment by foreign investors. Under a pilot program enacted in 1992, and regularly reauthorized since then, investors may also qualify for EB-5 visas by investing through regional centers designated by USCIS based on proposals for promoting economic growth. The EB-5 visa is a way to get your U.S. green card and permanent residency through an investment in a qualifying enterprise.
