EB-5 visa applicants are required to make either a $900,000 or $1.8 million capital investment into a U.S. business venture. This investment can appear as money, stock, tangible property, or cash equivalents acceptable in the U.S. market.
The applicant’s next step in the EB 5 visa process is to become a 2-year conditional resident of the United States.
