EB5 Green Card Visa:
EB-5 USA Investor Visa:-
EB-5 visa applicants are required to make an investment of at least $1.8 million, or $900,000 if the job creation occurs in a Targeted Employment Area (TEA), into a U.S. business venture. TEA designation applies to projects in either a rural area or in a high unemployment area.
The USA is a popular investment immigration destination due to the ease of doing business(this is permanently closed by World Bank), the scope for innovation, a broad consumer base, and a skilled workforce. Foreign investors (as well as their spouse and children under 21 years of age) can attain permanent residence or US Green Card status by applying for the employment-based fifth preference visa (EB-5), commonly known as the Immigrant Investor Program.

It should be for a profit activity (sole proprietorship, partnership, joint venture, holding company, corporation, business trust, or any other publicly/privately owned entity) created to conduct a lawful business. To qualify for the US Investor Visa, the minimum investment amount for an enterprise located in a high-employment area is $1,800,000, or $900,000 for one located in a targeted employment area (a rural area or an area that is experiencing high unemployment).
