Updated: Apr 14, 2020

EB-5 Visa

It is possible if you live outside of the U.S. to become a business owner in America by investing in Florida. This is made possible through the process of purchasing a Florida business or starting your own through the Immigrant Investor Program, also known as EB-5.

Every fiscal year, 10,000 EB-5 Visas are made available to qualifying, foreign investors.

The Easier Path to Green Card

Unlike other U.S. Visa programs the EB-5 Visa has:

  • No business or special training experience requiredNo language skills requiredNo age restrictions

  • No need to permanently reside here, just maintain a residence anywhere in the U.S.

  • No restrictions on you, your spouse or children (under 21 at the time of application) to work anywhere in the U.S., start a business, attend school or simply retire

  • Admission to state universities at U.S. resident costs

  • No travel restrictions

  • No need to manage your investment on a daily basis, becoming a limited partner will suffice

  • Option to become a U.S citizen after five years

  • Ability to sponsor Green Cards for other relatives

The United States government allows up to 10,000 foreign nationals per year under the EB-5 Visa Immigrant Investor program (see USCIS website). The investment must benefit the U.S. economy and:

  • Investment must be at least USD $900,000.

  • in and area designated as rural or which has an unemployment rate of at least 150% of the national average these are known as “Targeted Employment Areas”.

  • Investment must be in a commercial enterprise created after 1991. 

  • Investment must create or save at least 10 full-time direct jobs in the U.S.A.

How it Works

Since the colonization of America began in 1492, this country has welcomed immigrants who helped to build the American Dream. Now, with millions of Americans out of work, the opportunity for immigrants to again help this country has arrived, creating a win-win for residents and immigrants alike. The EB-5 program enables foreign immigrants to save existing jobs or provide new jobs. In exchange, immigrant investors are able to permanently work and reside in the United States.
