EB-5 Resources

The EB-5 Visa Program is a federal foreign direct investment, immigration, and regional economic development program that provides access to capital to U.S. businesses and creates American jobs at no expense to the American taxpayer. Globalization has spurred an unprecedented rise in wealth overseas, as well as increased the speed of capital between nations. By building immigration benefits into investment incentives, the EB-5 Program provides a welcome avenue for overseas wealth to be delivered to the U.S. economy – tapping into new opportunities and opening a new frontier of development finance programs.
