EB-5 Resources

The U.S. EB-5 Program is an employment creation based immigration program designed for an Immigrant Investor with sufficient capital resources to petition themselves and their immediate family for Permanent Residency in United States. EB-5 is the quickest way to get a U.S. Green Card by investing $500,000 into a U.S. based business that creates documented jobs in the U.S. Upon acceptance of your USCIS I-526 application, you are issued a “Conditional” Green Card. After time, investment, and job requirements have been met, a “Permanent” Green Card will be issued to you and your family members. EB-5 Programs are generally low risk and provide you with a reasonable return on investment.

The EB-5 visa program (Employment-Based Fifth Preference) was created in 1990 by the United States Congress. The Regional Center is a specific type of EB-5 program that allows a qualified immigrant investor to invest $500,000 into a new U.S. business which is located in a government designated “targeted employment area” (TEA); and if this new business creates 10 new direct or indirect jobs for each immigrant visa investor participant, each immigrant investor and their immediate families receive a permanent Green Card.

A Regional Center can be a public or private business and is involved with the promotion of economic growth, improved regional productivity, job creation, and increased domestic capital investment in a specific region in the U.S. A Regional Center is a designation granted by United States Custom and Immigration Service (“USCIS”) on the basis of a detailed proposal and business plan for economic growth in a particular geographic area designated as a TEA.

The New Hampshire EB-5 Regional Center’s sponsored EB-5 business is located in a TEA, and its corresponding economic studies estimates over 1,100 direct, indirect and induced jobs will be created with the support of your investment.

The process to complete the USCIS I-526 immigration petition application through a Regional Center, and receive conditional Green Cards for you and your family, can take as little as one month.

Investment Amount. You are required to invest $500,000 within a TEA which is the minimum amount allowed by U.S law to qualify for EB-5 Green Card with a TEA.

A Law Abiding Citizen. You must demonstrate that you are a upstanding member of your community with no pending criminal action against you.

Validate Source of Funds. You must demonstrate that your $500,000 of investment capital is in fact yours and acquired from legal business activities.

EB-5 Gift. EB-5 funds can also be provided as a gift to you from qualified relatives or business partners. However, you still must demonstrate that the money was generated from legal business activities.

Investment. Your EB-5 capital investment must be an at-risk, non-guaranteed investment in an operating business. Your investment through the New Hampshire EB-5 Regional Center meets all USCIS requirements.

Residency. Your EB-5 visa will have no residency requirement that you live in the state of New Hampshire or even the New England area. You have the choice to live anywhere in the United States, or choose to travel back and forth to the U.S. on a regular basis.
