One of our immigration concierge agents will contact you once you complete the contact form below. They will explain the EB-5 process and answer and questions you may have, while also going over eligibility requirements to see if the EB-5 is the best approach for you.
You will be connected with our legal partners who will work with you to complete the I-516 and all other required forms. Legal assistance is available throughout the entire process to help at every step along the way.
Along with our regional center partners and accredited broker-dealers, we will work to find the best investment to match your personal needs while meeting all EB-5 requirements. Investments combine risk/reward optimization while fitting the applicant’s personal needs.
The EB-5 immigrant investor visa was created by Congress within the Immigration Act to attract foreign investment to the United States, and create jobs, particularly in rural and high unemployment areas. By investing in an eligible business, investors and their families can qualify for a Green Card in a process that for some would be otherwise unattainable.
The investment must come from lawful means, and as a criterion for the investment, it must create 10 full time jobs for US workers within 2 years. Funds must remain invested until permanent residence is granted.
Typically, to qualify for an EB-5 visa, the amount invested must be at least $1,800,000 – but there is an exception, targeted employment areas. When the location of the investment and created jobs are within a targeted investment area, the minimum investment drops by half to just $900,000. Targeted Employment areas are defined as:
1. Rural areas, defined as any area other than one within a metropolitan statistical area or within the boundary of a city or town with a population of 20,000 or more; or
2. Areas having an unemployment rate that is at least 150% of the national average.
GovAssist works with a regional center in Puerto Rico, which is not only full of eligible areas, but also has extremely investor friendly tax regulations, making investments highly lucrative.
To be considered, all investments must meet the requirements for the investor to utilize for their EB-5 visa. We work with our regional center, as well as the investment target entities themselves to ensure full compliance with all requirements to ensure all our applicants’ investments will be accepted.
Beyond meeting the minimum standards, each investment opportunity is reviewed to ensure it has a suitable risk and reward profile. Based on the risk tolerance of the applicant, different opportunities may be recommended based on individual needs.
Making an investment of $900,000 or greater is a big decision. You need to be comfortable with the company and business model you are investing in and people behind it. We assist with full due diligence and can even facilitate introductions to company management to ensure you are happy with the choice you make.
