EB-5 Program

Created in 1992, the EB-5 Immigrant Investor program allows for a qualified foreign national to be eligible for permanent US Residency by making an investment into an eligible project in the US.

The EB-5 Program allows the investor (and family) to obtain permanent US Residency (Green Card) — sometimes in as little as twelve months. The ability to pursue US Residency comes in exchange for an investment of $500,000 USD with a USCIS accredited Regional Center (such as CiF), which allocates the funds into a US project that creates jobs for US workers.

The application process for this program is relatively simple and the main criteria are:

  • Qualification— To invest, applicants must first be qualified for investment. This is based on their net worth, income, status as a non-US person, and/or other criteria.

  • Source of Funds— The investor need to document that the investment capital was lawfully acquired. CiF will work with the investor and immigration attorneys to compile the necessary documentation.

  • Background— At the time of application, the investor will complete a background questionnaire for CiF. This will prepare the investor and the investor's attorney for the US government's standard background check, which will occur during the immigration process.
Since the impetus of the EB-5 Program is to spur investment and job creation here in the US, each EB-5 investor must be able to prove that his or her investment created 10+ new jobs for US workers. CiF works with professional economists to determine the number of jobs created by the EB-5 investment and submits this information to the USCIS on behalf of our EB-5 investors. Once proof of job creation is presented to the USCIS, Permanent US Residency is awarded to CiF's EB-5 investors, in the form of a Green Card for each investor and family.
