The EB-5 program was created by Congress in 1990 to stimulate the U.S. economy through job creation and capital investment by foreign investors. Through this program a foreign national, their spouse, and any unmarried children under the age of 21 can become a lawful permanent resident of the United States. This status is granted under the condition of investing in a qualifying U.S based enterprise.
EB-5 stands for employment based fifth preference visa.
The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) administers the EB-5 program.
The applicant must invest a minimum of USD $1,800,000 or USD $900,000. Areas that are deemed Targeted Employment Areas (TEA) will qualify for the USD$900,000.

Targeted Employment Area (TEA) is an area that has high unemployment figures, is in a marked rural area, or designated by the individual state.
Regional Centers are approved economic entities involved in promoting economic growth, job creation, increased domestic capital investment and improved regional productivity. The majority of EB-5 investments are done through a Designated Regional Center.
Yes. Our center, Carolinas Pinnacle Regional Center was approved in August 2013.
