Ready to invest? Here's what you need as a foreign party

Many people from around the world want to invest in American business, but there are some difficulties to overcome first. One of the programs you may need to participate in if you wish to invest is the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program. This is a program that allows you to apply for a green card if you make a necessary investment into a commercial business within America and intend to create at least 10 permanent full-time jobs for workers within the United States who are qualified for the positions.

The EB-5 program started in 1990 and is intended to help stimulate the American economy. Its goal is to bring in foreign investors who wish to create jobs for the American people.

To apply for this program, you must file a Form I-526 with the government. From there, the form must be approved along with the DS-260, an Application for Immigrant Visa and Alien Registration. If both are approved, then you may seek admission into the United States.

When you apply for this visa, it's important to support your request with the correct documents. You'll want to show that the new enterprise you're investing in was created after Nov. 29, 1990. Additionally, if it was established before that date, you'll need to show how the business has changed to create a new commercial enterprise. You also have to show that your investment will create a 40 percent increase in the number of employees at the business or a 40 percent increase in the net worth of the business.

These are just a few of the things you need to remember. Working with your immigration attorney can help you make sure you have all the documentation you need. Our website has more on the steps to take next.
