Visa EB-5 

Here is a small description of the monetary requirements to obtain a visa EB-5

What's the Minimum Investment for an EB-5 Investor Visa?

The precise amount of the minimum required investment is in flux. In the past and for many years, it was between $500,000 and $1 million, with the lower amount applicable only when investing in "targeted economic areas" (normally rural or high-unemployment areas). Then on November 21, 2019, the minimum investment requirements were raised to between $900,000 and $1.8 million.


However, in June of 2021, a federal judge held that the raised amounts were not properly signed off upon, and therefore never came into effect. So the $500,000/$1 million limits will remain in effect until the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) re-promulgates the new rules, as many experts believe is likely, though the timing cannot be predicted.


If and when the new rules do take effect, the minimum amounts will be adjusted for inflation every five years. A further change that was part of the 2019 rules said that state governments would no longer be allowed to say where the "targeted economic areas" are, but this would instead by handled by the DHS.
