The EB-5 is a United States Immigrant Investor Visa Program which is administered by USCIS (U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services). It was created by Congress in 1990 to stimulate the U.S. economy through job creation and capital investment by qualified foreign investors. Under a program initially enacted as a pilot in 1992, investors may qualify for EB-5 Visa by investing through Regional Centers designated by USCIS based on proposals for promoting economic growth and job creation. Currently nearly 95% of the total EB-5 capital is raised and invested by Regional Centers.
