The EB-5 immigrant investor program was created by Congress in 1990 as a means of stimulating the American economy by allowing certain qualifying foreign investors to live and work in the U.S. Investors may also invest through U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)-designated regional centers, in accordance with a 1992 pilot program that has been regularly authorized since its implementation.
You may be eligible under the EB-5 visa program as an immigrant investor if you wish to invest in a company in the United States that would create jobs and stimulate the economy. Specific requirements must be met, however, and the documentation and paperwork can be extensive and exhausting. An attorney with experience in EB-5 visas can provide guidance and representation to assist you in determining eligibility and applying. If you want to obtain a green card as an investor, Attorney Marlene Gonzalez can help you understand your options and can take the necessary steps to help you apply. To get started, call (801) 746-4880.

Businesses established prior to November 29, 1990 may also qualify, as long as it is sufficiently restructured, reorganized, or expanded. In cases involving troubled businesses, maintaining the same level of employees may be allowed.
