An EB-5 regional center is an economic unit, public or private, in the United States that is involved with promoting economic growth. Regional centers are designated by USCIS for participation in the Immigrant Investor Program.
When an EB-5 investor selects the EB-5 Regional Center Program for his EB-5 investment, they are choosing to make an investment through a government-approved Regional Center rather than investing directly into a new commercial enterprise. Both avenues have their benefits, however the majority of investors choose the EB-5 Regional Center investment.
Investors select the EB-5 regional center investment option for its primary focus on getting the investors their EB-5 green cards. Investors in the EB-5 Program may receive U.S. green cards and ultimately become eligible for U.S. citizenship. Living in the U.S. with an EB-5 visa has many advantages including Green cards for an investor’s spouse and all their unmarried children under the age of 21 years, access to world-class educational institutions with possible reduced tuition, no employment restrictions and increased travel freedoms.
The standard investment amount is $1.8 million but Regional centers quite often select projects in targeted employment area (TEA) to obtain the reduced minimum investment amount of $900,000.
To receive additional information on our EB-5 Project through our EB-5 Regional Center that would allow for you to invest $900,000 in a TEA or Targeted Employment Area, please use the contact us page.
