What is the Minimum Investment for EB5 Visas?
For EB-5 visas, the minimum investment required for “targeted employment areas” is $500,000. This includes most regional center projects. Targeted areas are considered rural or geographical areas that have an unemployment rate of at least 150% of the national average rate. For investments that are outside of this area, the minimum amount will likely be $1 million. It is important to understand your specific situation so that you can make sure you are prepared to invest properly.
