U.S. GOVERNMENT’S EB-5 REQUIREMENTS

FOR INVESTORS

Each EB-5 Visa applicant must invest a minimum of $USD500,000 in a job-creating venture.

For a project and job creating venture to be eligible for the EB-5 program and accessible by investors, a project must be located in a Targeted Employment Area (TEA), which is an area that has an unemployment rate that is greater than 150% of the national average.

Salter Brothers works with a team of consultants, developers and Regional Centres specific to each of our Project Locations to ensure our projects are TEA designated and able to generate the necessary number of full time jobs to meet USCIS approval; i.e. 10 permanent full time jobs.
